The LOX Sheek Louch has joined forces with Def Jam Records by signing a deal that puts him on a roster which consists of Jadakiss, Fabolous, The-Dream and more.
Writing via Twitter, the rapper broke the news to all of his followers.
"D-block!! Twitter what's poppin? I got a major announcement ... Gonna tell yall in a few....," he wrote Monday (May 10) afternoon. " Ya boy just signed a new deal...y'all can call me Donnie Def Jam now!!" (Sheek Louch's Twitter)
LOX's Jadakiss recently spoke on the likelihood their upcoming group album would be released through Bad Boy Records.
"That's on-board with a few offers," 'Kiss said. "It was in the making with Diddy. But after we put out that '[Ha Ha] Slow Down' remix, we got a few more calls in that's on the table right now. They upped the ante. The ante got upped off a light freestyle. You see the impact? You feel that?" (MTV)
Last March, Styles P also said a Diddy deal had not been finalized.
"Ain't nobody vocal, we ain't signed to Puff yet," Styles told radio host Jenny Boom Boom. "We LOX and even if we was, I think everybody respects us to know we do what we do. It's still possible, it's still possible, you know paper work is paper work. It's like y'all job, it ain't official until you sign the contract, right? Nobody's saying it's 'not' a go, but nothing's a go until the contract is signed and I don't know what other way to tell you than that. It's not a go until everything is inked down. Dame Grease is gonna be on it [producing,] we looking to work with all kinds of hot producers." ("Jenny Boom Boom")
Producer Dame Grease recently announced his involvement with the new album.
"It's official, actually, Kiss asked me personally," Grease revealed in an interview. "This was before they were gonna take it to Puff or wherever because the thing is, just checking statistics like the success that we had with The LOX, we all had together and sold 1.5, 2 million records...That was then, but we put the same formula and into the future music."
