After surpassing public expectations and wrestling with constant skepticism of their hit single "Laffy Taffy", D4L has bounced back with a vengeance as their follow-up single "Bet 'Cha Can't Do It Like Me" is rising up the charts and slowly silencing the critics as we speak.
I caught up with D4L's frontman Mook B while the group was in Memphis on tour and got we got a chance to talk about the surprising D4L success as well as the criticism, and the alleged animosity between D4L and Dem Fanchise Boys.
First off, the D4L buzz is crazy right now. I'm even hearing that you cats have been out on the east coast getting all kinds of love and you know that's big for an Atlanta artist, what's up with that?
Oh man, New York showed us too much love when was up there. Much love to everybody up in New York for real. Shots out to Kay Slay, Funkmaster Flex and everybody in New York man we did the grimiest club up in Manhattan and crunked it up.
How do you answer the critics who label you one-hit wonders and commercial artists?
We just give all praises to God and we don't even think about what people say or think about us at all. We just thankful to be here because coming from where we from we supposed to be either dead or locked up somewhere. We from four different projects in Atlanta so the odds was against us from jump.
