SHAWTY LO’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FEBRUARY 26TH DEBUT UNITS IN THE CITY IS A VICTIM OF RAMPID BOOTLEGGING BUT THE COPIES DO NOT CONTAIN SEVERAL SONGS INCLUDING THE HIT SINGLE “DEY KNOW”

ATLANTA–D4L member and Asylum Recording Artist Shawty Lo is the latest victim of bootlegging, as many people are purchasing unauthorized copies of Units In The City instead of waiting for its February 26th release date. However buyers are not receiving several new songs on the album, including the smash single, “Dey Know,” as well as, “Ain’t Tellin'”, “That’s Shawty Lo”, “Got Em 4 The LO” and “Count On Me.”

According to Shawty Lo, “Some of my new material was taken from my studio and bootlegged but what people don’t know is that they don’t have the real deal. They don’t have all the songs that’s going on the album. They’re cheating themselves.”

Music from Shawty Lo has been in high demand ever since he dropped the monster jam, “I’m Da Man” in 2005 from D4L’s certified Gold disc, Down For Life. The following year, Shawty Lo along with DJ Scream dropped a mixtape of the same name in 2006, which sold over 40,000 copies. The dynamic duo decided to give listeners even more of what they craved by distributing another mixtape entitled, “I’m Da Man, Part 2,” adding even more momentum for Units In The City.

“People have been waiting on the product, especially with an artist like Shawty Lo, so unfortunately, bootlegging is gonna happen. And if it’s out there, people are gonna buy it, they’re gonna want it because he’s hot in the streets,” says veteran Atlanta DJ and Big Oomp Records store retailer DJ Jelly.
