Originally expected last December, the Lox's Styles P will on Nov. 14 deliver his long-awaited sophomore disc, "Time Is Money" (Ruff Ryders/Interscope). It's the follow-up to his 2002 solo debut, "A Gangster and a Gentleman," which has sold 627,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The set features guest appearances from fellow Lox affiliates Jadakiss and Sheek Louch, as well as Talib Kweli, Jagged Edge, Mario Winans, Gerald Levert, Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry and reggae artist Sizzla.

Producers include Scott Storch, the Alchemist and Hi-Tek. The track "Can You Believe It" featuring Akon hit No. 31 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart last December; Styles P was previously heard on Akon's hit "Locked Up."

"Time Is Money" was teased last fall via Styles P's "Ghost in the Machine" mix tape series.
