With the announcement of Styles P’s forthcoming album Float comes its first single “Hater Love,” featuring Sheek Louch. The duo represents the LOX’s brand of gritty street rap with this track, which dons a filthy chorus that exclaims, “Even the hatin’ ni–as is loving it/ F**k all the h0e-A$$ ni–as and f-ck the government.”
We’d have to agree with Styles and Sheek, as far as the track’s quality is concerned. If street Hip-Hop is your thing, hater or not, this Scram Jones-produced jam will strike a chord. A verse from Jadakiss, the final third of the LOX trio, is the only thing that could have made this horn heavy cut any better.
Float will be exclusively produced by the aforementioned Jones, and will see its proper release April 20 through Nature Sounds/High Times Records. Until then, fans will have to vibe out to “Hater Love,” and some of Styles P’s other recent work. We recommend “All Js” and “Empire State High.”
