Perhaps no song or artist better portrayed the effects of a grass roots, organic rise into the public’s consciousness in 2009 better than the Bay Area’s very own D-Lo and his remarkably infectious “No Hoe.” Continuing to bully its way into the new year, the official single has been followed by a bevy of remixes, including tracks featuring Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and more. Among the bonanza was a remix featuring the Ambassador of the Bay E-40, Beeda Weeda, and The Jacka (mp3 below). Now D-Lo and label ClearBeat have finally delivered the long-awaited remix video. Kicking things off with shots of each of the rappers coinciding with each of the song’s initial deep bass hits, the foursome quickly get things started, seemingly crashing a pretentious fashion show filled with beautiful women and booze â€“ you know, all the essentials for a proper party. With split screen and transition effects along the way, in addition to a constant exchange of flashes between black and white and color imaging, the video manages a certain sort of surrealism, both dynamic and eye-catching. As D-Lo continues the preparation of his official solo debut for later this year, Mr. No Hoe continues to provide the goods.

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.
