Block Entertainment/Bad Boy South recording artist Gorilla Zoe has announced the release of his sophomore album. “DON’T FEED DA ANIMALS” – which includes the lead single, “Lost” – arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on March 17th.

Produced by Drumma Boy, “Lost” is currently exploding at radio. The track is a top 20 favorite at Urban outlets nationwide and top 25 at Rhythmic after impacting as the #1 Most Added song at both Urban and Rhythmic.

In addition, the single’s companion video clip is currently receiving major play on BET, where it has been a top 10 triumph on the 106 & Park countdown while also scoring “Heavy” rotation on The Deal. Zoe will celebrate the arrival of “DON’T FEED DA ANIMALS” with an exclusive appearance and performance on 106 & Park, slated for Tuesday, March 17th (check local listings). Furthermore, “Lost” is now in “Sizzlin” rotation at MTV Jams as well as having been recently added to MTV2’s Sucker Free.

“DON’T FEED DA ANIMALS” will be heralded by a feature-length film of the same name, the first release from Block Entertainment CEO Russell “Big Block” Spencer’s newly launched Block Films. Don’t Feed Da Animals stars Gorilla Zoe in an action-packed street narrative directly inspired by the album. The film – produced in conjunction with Raw Report Films – features five music videos to accompany such new tracks as “I Am The A,” “Break It Down,” “Talk Back (Feat. Roxy Reynolds),” “100, 50, 20 &10,” and “Dope Boys.” Don’t Feed Da Animals will be distributed in select markets nationwide in the spring – for further details, please see www.block-ent.com.

“DON’T FEED DA ANIMALS” is without question one of 2009’s most hotly awaited new hip-hop releases. The album – which follows last year’s smash debut, “WELCOME TO THE ZOO” – includes a number of instant classics filled with Zoe’s signature flow and banging beats. Among the highlights is the second single, “What It Is (Feat. Rick Ross and Kollosus),” which is available now as an iTunes Store exclusive. A video for “What It Is” was recently shot in Atlanta with Rick Ross and will be serviced to all video outlets this month.

The album is quickly shaping up as a hip-hop blockbuster. “Lost” has proven a breakout hit, with download sales of 200,000 driving the track onto Billboard’s “Hot 100.” Furthermore, “What It Is” has already received over 10,000 downloads in just one week, giving Zoe two “DON’T FEED DA ANIMALS” tracks with sales in excess of 10,000 for the week leading up to the album’s release.

Zoe – who recently joined Lil’ Wayne as a special guest on his hugely successful “I Am Music” arena tour – has already begun receiving major press attention, with high-profile features and reviews appearing in such publications as Hip Hop Weekly, XXL, and The Source.

Named one of XXL’s 2007 “Leaders of the New School,” Zoe firmly established himself as a truly original hip-hop voice via the top 10 rap smash, “Hood Figga,” not to mention his featured role on Block Entertainment/Bad Boy South labelmate Yung Joc’s hits, “Coffee Shop” and “Bottle Poppin’.” As if that weren’t enough, he joined forces with superstar rap combo Boyz N Da Hood for their 2007 release, “BACK UP N DA CHEVY.”

Since then, Zoe has lent his distinctive style to a variety of hip-hop hits, including Lil’ Wayne’s “Lollipop (Remix),” as well as tracks by Cheri Dennis, Shawty Lo, and Rick Ross.
