Boyz N Da Hood - The Boyz Are Back

Boyz N Da Hood captured the nation's attention in 2005 with their self-titled debut album and hit single “Dem Boyz.” Critics soon labeled the group the N.W.A. of the South and they were able to give Bad Boy Records the street credibility that the label was missing after the death of the Notorious B.I.G. and the release of The L.O.X. But after Young Jeezy left the group to pursue a solo career, many believed that Boyz N Da Hood would go down as a one-album wonder. However, East Point, Ga., native Gorilla Zoe has since joined the group and they are now reloading for their sophomore album Back N Da Chevy.

“It's gonna be one of the hottest albums in the streets this summer,” says Big Gee. “We're giving the world that same hard-core stuff that they expect from us.” The album, which is scheduled to be released in early August, features Ice Cube, Rick Ross, T-Pain and production from Drama Boy and Carl Mo. Their first single “G'd Up” has already become one of the hottest songs of 2007.

Although the group made many references to their upcoming album during an interview at Spring Fest in Miami, they also commented on the “rap-bashing” that has taken place since the Don Imus incident.

“I just think the whole situation where people are trying to attack rap is just America pointing the blame in another direction,” says Big Duke. “They try to blame us for the exploitation that they have been involved in since the beginning of time. Before they jump on us, they need to straighten [out] their situations first.”
