While D-Lo’s new track may start out sounding like a childhood favorite, it’s safe to say that small children aren’t quite ready for “Any Mini.” “Eenie meenie miney moe / should I get the tech or the 4 / never leave the home without it / if I ain’t strappin’ I don’t go.” Just because D-Lo may not be kid-friendly doesnâ€™t mean he’s not party friendly, however. At the rate he’s going at just age 20, D-Lo may have “a million more” dope tracks by the time he’s done.
With guest spots from fellow up-and-coming Bay Area hyphy icons Shady Nate and Mr. Tower, “Any Mini” features the classic DJ Fresh sound made famous on D-Lo’s smash single “No Hoe”- thumping spare drum beats, handclaps, and a non-traditional rhythmic structure. Especially considering the upstart that he is, “Any Mini” shows the promise that has hyphy fans ready to go dumb for years to come. Check out this track and the rest of D-Lo’s newest material on the Clear Label Records album, The Tonite Show with D-Lo, available now everywhere.

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.
