The LOX's Jadakiss has addressed recent speculation sparked by Sheek Louch's claims their camp would be recording a collaborative album with The Wu-Tang Clan.
Although he has yet to flesh out details about the would-be "Wu-Block" with Louch, Jada voiced his enthusiasm for the project.
"Yeah, yeah, I seen Sheek talking about that on Twitter. I haven't seen him lately because he's running around promoting his new album. But I'll definitely be a part of that. Louch is my brother, Ghost[face Killah] is family, so it's all love. All they have to do is tell me what time the session is gonna be and I'll be there to make it happen." (VIBE)
Aiming for a March 2011 release, Sheek recently explained how his association with fellow Def Jam labelmate Ghostface Killah developed into a collaborative project.
"Me and Ghost were just on tour together for about two months," says Sheek. "So every night, we were writing and eventually the idea to do a project together came about organically. The plan is for me and Ghost to front it and to include certain cats from Wu-Tang and D-Block on some songs so that's it's a true Wu-Tang/D-Block album. I already told Raekwon, Styles P and Jadakiss that I'm going to need them on some joints. Cappadonna and Trife [Da God] are down. And we're going to get some RZA tracks, too. It's gonna be dope."

Sheek alerted fans to the possibility of a joint album last week on Twitter.
"SHEEK/GHOST FACE. Presents WU/BLOCK the album comming TOP of the year...GET READY!!!," Sheek tweeted November 19th. (Sheek Louch's Twitter)
A few days ago, a Sheek and Ghost track called "The Eulogy" hit the Internet.
This chilly posse cut could be a bonus track from the new Ghostface album Apollo Kids, or a mid album stronghold from the Wu-Block full length. But in fact it's just a hazy support for the mixtape that Carmelo Anthony put out to hype his new Jordan Melo M7's. Those retail for $130. Ghostface is gonna get his comped though, then dip them in a bucket of molten Crayola's and run through some mud. If Ghost actually had Melo on the phone and could get him to move to NY, then Sheek wouldn't be able to make this Nuggs pun. In the Empire State, Mile High City and everywhere else, the mixtape is free. (The FADER)
