It’s a new joint from Oakland’s newest band of brothers, as current hitmaker D-Lo drops the track “Coppers” featuring his brother, Sleepy D. While D-Lo sticks to his recipe of insanely deep bass, handclaps, and that (now) recognizable high-pitched bark, he strays from the in-your-face-ness of “No Hoe,” utilizing synth rumbles to construct a melodic bass line. After being raised in deep Oakland and serving around a year in prison (right as he was trying to get his career off the ground), D-Lo, has a certain resentment for the local authorities, “See it’s a big difference, in songs, between ‘No Hoe’ and ‘Coppers’,” says D-Lo, “‘Coppers’ is more of a concept, more about how the police can try, but they can never catch us.” He has chosen the right way to express his experience with the police, as “Coppers” is set to bump in every Grand Impala that rolls around the Bay Area. Check out this track and the rest of D-Lo’s newest material on the Clear Label Records compilation, The Tonite Show with D-Lo, available now everywhere.
Also, look out for the forthcoming remix video!

Two years ago, brothers D-Lo and Sleepy D were making music in the basement of their mother’s Modesto, CA home. After much time spent honing their craft towards the Bay Area scene they were surrounded by, D-Lo completed “No Hoe,” a to-be mega-hit. With MySpace as his main form of distribution, D-Lo got the word out on his hyphy concoction. After being picked up by a small independent label called PTB (Pushing the Beat), D-Lo finally got “No Hoe” released as a single. Two weeks later, he was imprisoned. But not having D-Lo on the streets didnâ€™t slow the spread of his single, as “No Hoe” took Bay Area radio by storm. The track blew up and is arguably the new anthem of the Bay Area scene. D-Lo’s “No Hoe” has since been released on a Clear Label Records compilation produced by DJ Fresh and The Whole Shabang entitled The Tonite Show with D-Lo.
