D-Block member Sheek Louch is planning to release a new album titled Silverback Gorilla, which will hit stores in March of 2008.
The album is the second release from Sheek Louch since D-Block Records inked a marketing and services deal with Koch Records in 2005.
A number of top rappers will appear on the album with Sheek Louch, including D-Block co-founders Jadakiss and Styles P, as well as UGK member Bun B., Dipset member Jim Jones, The Game and South Bronx rapper Fat Joe.
“Sheek Louch is a successful core Koch artist and he defines gangsta rap in New York,” said Alan Grunblatt, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Records. The first single and video “Keep Pushin'” will hit radio and video outlets shortly.
In addition to being a member of the Yonkers Hip-Hop trio The Lox, Sheek Louch has release two previous solo albums.
Sheek Louch debuted as a solo artist in 2003 with his critically acclaimed solo album, Walk Witt Me, which was released via Universal.
The rapper followed with 2005’s After Taxes on D-Block/Koch Records, which debuted at #23 on Billboard’s Top 200.
