Sheek Louch Preps Silverback Gorilla for March ’08 Release

LOX group member and solo artist Sheek Louch is preparing to release his third solo LP, Silverback Gorilla in March of next year. The album will be released under the rappers marketing services agreement with Koch Records and his own D-Block records. In addition to his partners Jadakiss and Styles P, Sheek has tapped Bun B, The Game, Fat Joe and Jim Jones for guest appearances. The first single, “Keep Pushin’” will be hitting the streets any day now. Silverback Gorilla is the follow up to Sheek’s first two solo projects, 2003’s Walk Witt Me and 2005’s After Taxes. “Sheek Louch is a successful core KOCH artist and he defines gangsta rap in New York,” Koch General Manager and executive VP Alan Grunblatt said in a statement announcing the release.

    Sheek Louch is the most boring rapper in the industry. I can’t believe Styles and Jada let him hang around. Seriously, quote one SL line.

    • Saigon & Papoose = THE FUTURE

      quote one line? ummm idk
      “Sheek got the hood upside down like a hot wheel track set”

      and i’m not some diehard D-Block fan
      but he does rip Raised With Them Gangstas with Papoose and Jada

  • krime

    SHEEK?? hell no! i fuck wit da lox all day, but dis nigga sheek is da weakest one. He just sounds too simple for me, all he raps about is violence in da simplest form. At least Jada & Styles put sum swag into dat shit. Dat nigga sheek just sounds too simple for me

  • Ox_150

    LMMFAO@Curse58 and anybody else who co-signs that he is tha best out of tha lox. I do co-sign wit’ tha cat who said why tha hell did styles and kiss let him hang around anyway. ‘Cause Sheek is TRASH. Somebody GAVE me his cd for FREE was just like HERE PLEASE TAKE IT. And I did I mean I figured how bad could it be? It was his first piece of trash “Walk Wit Me”. 2 Gunz Up is tha best song off that album, ’cause Kiss And Styles.. I mean everyone has they own opinion thats coo’. But for tha people who say he’s better then kiss and styles and his album is “classic” just look at tha ratio of people who agree wit’ you verses tha amount who don’t. Thats proof enough right there…..but RAP sucks anyway so who cares?

  • Coleon

    Sheek has always been a beast. He just never got the exposure that Styles and Kiss got. He is just as good of a lyricist as both of them. He just doesn’t hunger for the fame like they do. He’s happy playing the background because he know he spits fire and the real niggas are going to buy his album. He does it for the love of the grind and to feed the street niggas. It’s not about the status or the plaques.

  • SV

    WTF, Jada & Styles bodyguard raps now? HHID!!!!!!

    I dont want anybody to take my statements personally Im only speaking out loud and not directly towards any one individuals comments.I cant help but see the simplicity and lack of intellectual advancement.I mean its one thing to use profanity and slang in everyday conversation but to turn around and do it while you’re typing in something as simple as this situation here.Whats the point really.

    Now as far as what I have to say about Sheek’s latest release,well we are all from the outside looking in Im sure that the majority of us are not members of the Lox camp nor do we live around them.So to say anything about someone that is outside of the music is pointless as well.

    I did not take the comments made by Alan Grunblatt to be degrading.GangsterRap is a sub-genre in rap music.It is labeled gangster rap only because it has elements of past gangster rap releases and/or the artist themselves wants it to be.

    Yes,I will say most label executives see dollar signs first but I promise you that is something not limited to the entertainment industry.

    Lastly, I nor any of us can not use previous releases as tools to determine if a future release is going to be worthy of a purchase.I know we all have an artist in mind that their last album was not as good as their first and vice-versa (I chose not to name names).

    So only time will tell….

    God Bless & Grind Hard
