KOCH Records Announces New Album by Sheek Louch

"SILVERBACK GORILLA" on Deck for February 2008

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 14, 2007) - KOCH Records is proud to announce the release of "Silverback Gorilla," the brand new album by D-Block member Sheek Louch. "Silverback Gorilla" will hit stores everywhere in February 2008. The album features a who's-who list of guest appearances including Jadakiss, Styles P, Jim Jones, Bun B, The Game and Fat Joe.

The first single, "Keep Pushin'," will be impacting Radio shortly.

Sheek Louch, along with Styles P and Jadakiss, is a founding member of The LOX, the Yonkers-based group who was a backbone of Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy label during its heyday, the mid '90s. Hired as writers, the trio wrote and performed on Comb's "I Got The Power," and "It's All About the Benjamins," Mase's "24 Hrs. to Live," the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Last Day," Mary J. Blige's "Can't Get You Off My Mind," and many others.

The LOX released their debut album, "Money, Power & Respect," in 1998 -- it reached #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts. To date, The LOX has sold 1.7 million albums.

Sheek's new album comes under his current marketing services deal between KOCH Records, the (#1 Independent label in the U.S.) and the mighty D-Block Records (created by Sheek with lifelong friends, Styles P and Jadakiss). The first release on D-Block was Sheek Louch's 2003 debut album, "Walk Witt Me" followed by "After Taxes" which debuted at #23 on Billboard's Top 200 upon release. Sheek has sold a combined 400,000 units as a solo artist.

Alan Grunblatt, General Manager and Executive Vice President of KOCH Records, says, "Sheek Louch is a successful core KOCH artist and he defines gangsta rap in New York."
