D-Block's Sheek Louch Signs To Def Jam

The L.O.X. emcee announced today that he's returned to the majors, after a fruitful tenure on Koch.

After over five years with E1 Entertainment f/k/a Koch Records, D-Block's Sheek Louch says he's returned to the major label system. Today, the founding Warlocks/L.O.X. member (@RealSheekLouch) tweeted, "Ya boy just signed a new deal...y'all can call me Donnie Def Jam now!!"

The Yonkers emcee released his solo debut 2003 album Walk Witt Me on Universal Records, before releasing two official albums (After Taxes and Silverback Gorilla) on Koch Records.

Although details have yet to be released, the deal will make Sheek label-mates with D-Block/L.O.X. brother Jadakiss, who is signed to Def Jam through Roc-A-Fella Records.

The deal is believed to be part of a new regime at Def Jam, which includes new hiree Sha Money XL as Sr. VP of A&R for the famed New York imprint.

    why not get all the lox then that way you can have a whole lox cd come out, then they all can stand they ground as solo artist, let them put those out, then come bacc for a lox cd.that would make more sense, and dollars make a lot of that

    • Stickilous Fingazo

      Styles always been much better... and as for the reply what Sheek solo project had more buzz or more sales than Gangster and a Gentlemen

    • steve guz

      why would they take styles? sheek sells more than styles has more of a buzz than styles... he sold more than jada's last kiss with 200k the first week silverback gorilla... Sheek is going to blow watch!

  • C-ARSON

    the fuck does Sheek need to be on a major for?

  • Ron.G

    Congratulations to Sheek. However, I'm really eager to hear a quality Lox's album. Is it me or is it a little bit ridiculous that they've been in the game for so long and only have two albums as a group? As nice as Jadakiss is, I've never been a big fan of his solo projects. They don't suck, but he has a tendency to intentionally make radio friendly songs. Sometimes he doesn't a great job of it, but far to often he falls flat. I have to say admire Ghost albums more. His albums has more depth. Not to mention he knows who and what he is. As a result, there's less candy albums. All that being said, I want to hear a damn Lox album already. At least make a quality mixtape album or something. No more solos until they drop an album.

    I find that many white girls are trying to find black guys as their matches on _____BlackWhiteSingle.COM____. White girls are interested in black guys, then how about the black girls? I do prefer to find a black man as my boy friend.

  • wolfman
