Good to see that ATL's own D4L has signed a major deal with Asylum/Atlantic Records. Last month it was rumored that they were close to signing a deal but nothing was confirmed.
It should be interesting to see if they're able to keep the same sound that has created such a buzz in the city. Many artists say they prefer the indie realm because it gives you much more creative control over your project. For instance, I wonder if D4L would have been able to drop an unconventional song like "Laffy Taffy" had it been up to a higher, more conservative authority. Let's just hope that they remain true and keep giving us what we're used to hearing.
With Franchise Boys and D4L backed by major money we'll see if their beef heats up (see, 50 & the rest of the world). Peep out D4L's "Somebody Gone Get Shot...We Don't Play That". Then peep Franchise/TrapSquad's "Lean With It". The lyrical bullets are in the air as we speak.
D4L, the four-man rap clique that has been taking over the airwaves with a series of contagious hits that
started with "Betcha Can't Do It Like Me" and continued with their follow-up "Laffy Taffy". The group consists of Fabo, Mook-B, Shawty Low and Stoney.
"This is one of the hottest groups in Atlanta right now. These guys have made a lotta noise in a short period of time. This deal is the result of months of hard work and grinding across the southeast." D4L Manager manager Johnnie Cabbell explains.
D4L will be in Memphis on Sept 23rd and in Tampa on the 28th.
