D4L's debut cd, D4L: DOWN FOR LIFE, released jointly by Dee Money and Asylum Records, is a collection of songs created in the image of Shawty Lo, Stoney, Fabo and Mook-B. It's that authentic west side Atlanta sound that they pioneered. 'The music is unbelievable,' says Stoney. 'Together we create a sound that is unheard of. A lot of folks are trying to imitate our sound but it's impossible.'
Fabo agrees. 'We have a new sound, a new soul; music for your mama, your grandmama, neighbors, kids; music everybody loves. Originality sells. We doin' what we feel. It's nothing made up about it. It ain't no gimmick.'
With production work handled mostly by their own clique, D4L serves up a tray of crispy, southern-flavored tracks ('Game Owe Me,' 'Do It Like Me Baby,' and 'Diggin' Me') that place them in a musical category all their own.
