The LOX's Sheek Louch's highly-anticipated Donnie G: Don Gorilla album cover art has hit the Internet and shows the newly signed Def Jam artist as half-man, half-animal.

The project's December 2010 release date was announced last September.
The Yonkers rapper is set to drop his first Def Jam album Donnie G on Dec. 7--his first major label project since his solo debut on Universal, Walk Witt Me. One-third of gutter rap group The Lox, Sheek has recently been lighting up the Internet with leaks from his upcoming fifth solo album (see street heater "Cocaine Trafficing" with Jadakiss) and upcoming mixtape with DJ Green Lantern, Donnie Def Jam: Guerrilla Warfare Vol. 1 (VIBE)
Last May, Sheek credited Island Def Jam music executive L.A. Reid for bringing his talent to the label.
"I got some real good music coming out," he revealed. "I needed that right machine behind it to get that record past the level that it stops, to push it further. And I was shopping it to a lot of the majors...but my man L and Butch, Czar, Mike Caruso and Lenny S...they brought me up in there to Def Jam. And Chris Hicks and L.A. [Reid] they seen the vision. And it's on...It's between a couple spots that's actually throwing real nice numbers and ideas at [The LOX]. I know everybody's been hearing about that project but it's for real, for real...we're meeting with [Diddy] on Wednesday." (XXL Mag)
Sheek initially announced his signing to Def Jam in early May via his Twitter page.
"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)
