D4L Member Shawty Lo Prepares Solo Album

After the success of D4L's debut album Down For Life, D4L member Shawty

Lo is searching for similar success this fall with the release of his

solo debut Units In The City.Atlanta based group D4L is best known for their massive radio

friendly hits "Laffy Taffy" and "Betcha Can’t Do It Like Me."

Shawty Lo is no stranger to solo projects; in 2006 he released the

I'm Da Man mixtape along with DJ Scream and together the two went

on to sell over 40,000 copies.

Unlike the catchy dance tracks on D4L's album Down For Life, Shawty Lo's

debut album is said to chronicle the rapper's life on the streets of


"I don't really consider myself as much of a rapper as I do a truth

teller," Shawty Lo. "I just talk about what's going on in my hood and in

my life, so it's all coming from the heart. Even if people haven’t

experienced what I'm talking about, everybody can understand and relate

to what's real."

Units In The City will feature guest appearances from Gucci

Mane and fellow D4L members Fabo, Mook B, and Stuntman.

Units In The City will also include production by Born

Immaculate, DJ Pooh, Big Trill and Shorty D.
