Sheek Louch signed a solo deal with Def Jam and also Big Boi from Outkast signs a one album deal…hmmmm interesting…

Sheek Louch 1/3 of Yonkers lyrical rap group D Block announced via twitter that he just signed a deal with Def Jam. This must be a big day for him & yonkers. He must feel good to come out of free agency and sign to one of the biggest labels in the game. With Jadakiss releasing his new mixtape & album a couple of months before that, it was about time that another member of D Block stepped it up & put their new material out. Sheek worked hard for this opportunity with new freestyles every week to the newest record that was out. Get ready & be on the look out for a mixtape from Sheek Louch & an album for sure now that hes with Def Jam.

OutKast’s Big Boi has informed all of his Twitter followers that he has signed a one-album deal with Def Jam Records.

“THE INK IS ON THE PAPER!!! “BREAKING NEWS!!!!” It’s OFFICIAL! BIG BOI signs SOLO album DEAL with DEF JAM!!! More details to come…,” he wrote late Friday (March 19) night. (Big Boi’s Twitter)

Old rhyme partner André 3000 cameos on “Lookin 4 Ya”; the ominous, R&B-tinged “Hustle Blood” features Jamie Foxx; and “Shine Blockas,” a booming, soulful jam with Gucci Mane, is already an underground hit. The release has been repeatedly delayed as Big Boi negotiates with his record label, but that’s given him time to live with the music. “If I can listen to it every day for years,” he says, “I know fans will wear it out when they get it.” (Rolling Stone)

“The album is done,” says Big Boi. “Right now I’m just shooting videos. I’ma shoot a video for just about every song on the album. I shot like five videos so far, for the past three weeks. I’ve been editing those videos… it’s coming man it’s coming. I know everybody’s been waiting and I’m anxious to give it to them. But it will be here soon. Trust me.” (XXL Mag)
