Albany, Georgia Hip-Hop
duo Field Mob has inked a deal with Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label to release
their third album Light Poles and Pine Trees.
“As Disturbing Tha Peace continues to grow, we are proud to have them as
an addition to our brand,” Ludacris told AllHipHop.com. “We [Disturbing
Tha Peace] are here to broaden their appeal as being two of the leading lyricists
from the south. I expect just as much from them as they do from us.”
Group members Shawn Jay and Smoke explained the meaning behind the album’s
"The name of the album is Light Poles and Pine Trees
because there ain't no skyline where we're from," Shawn Jay said.
"There's no arch like in St. Louis or palm trees like California,"
continued Smoke aka Chevy Pendagrass. "You look up and that's what you
see in Albany."
The release of the unofficial single in "Georgia" features Ludacris
and a sampled hook from Ray Charles’ “Georgia on My Mind,”
which is also the official song of the state of Georgia.
The first official single will be "Friday Night," which also features
Ludacris and is produced by Kenjo.
The album will feature collaborations with Ludacris, Ciara, Bone Crusher, Bobby
Valentino, and others.
"I feel like we're the most posturpedic group in the industry right now,"
says Shawn Jay. "Meaning, we're the most slept-on artists. Other artists
know that if them boys get a little bit of light, its over."
and Pine Trees is slated to drop in November on Disturbing Tha Peace/Geffen
