YONKERS, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Yonkers’ Sean Divine Jacobs!

Sean Divine Jacobs, who was born in Yonkers, turns 38 on Sunday.

Jacobs, a rapper and member of The LOX and founder of D-Block Records, along with Styles P and Jadakiss, was born Nov. 9, 1976. He is better known as Sheek Louch (also known as Donnie Def Jam and "Donnie G).

At around the age of 12, he was inspired to rhyme by his friend Jason Phillips (Jadakiss). He and Jason would later form The LOX with Styles P. Mary J. Blige "discovered" the trio, and they would soon be signed to Sean Combs's Bad Boy Records. Their first album, Money, Power & Respect, was released on Jan. 13, 1998.

Sheek released his solo debut Walk Witt Me on Universal Records through D-Block Records. He was also featured on an episode of World's Wildest Police Videos, which demonstrated his notorious past. He has worked somewhat prolifically with Ghostface Killah. They are currently working together along with other members of Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block on the Wu-Block LP, after drawing inspiration from one another while touring and recording.
