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.
