Shawty Lo Releases Statement on Album Leak

The debut solo project from D4L member Shawty Lo has apparently made its way onto the internet and into the hands of bootlegers ahead of its impending release date. But the Atlanta MC wants his fans to know that if they purchase or download the leaked version, they won’t be getting the real product. In a statement released today (February 6) Shawty states that the copies of Units in The City that are currently making the rounds are missing several songs including “Dey Know,” his smash debut single. “Some of my new material was taken from my studio and bootlegged but what people don’t know is that they don’t have the real deal,” Shawty explained. “They don’t have all the songs that’s going on the album. They’re cheating themselves.” Units In The City is due in stores on February 26.

    It really doesn’t matter if it gets leaked or not. Its just gonna take one person to buy it and put it on limewire/bearshare/aries and he still won’t get sales. Unless his album is really good. And I mean good material not just a hot beat and a hot hook. I’m still up in the air if I’ll buy it or not.

      He really said “still up in the air”… that’s classic shit right there. Maybe you’ve heard something that i haven’t… all I know is I’ve heard 4 different cover songs to this beat and they are 1,784x better than his…

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Still up in the air? Sill up in the fuckin air?!? What exactly are you debating with yourself? What is “Dey Know” beside a “hot beat and a hot hook”? Am I missing something?

    • Young Deuce aka Princinnati

      You not missing somethin. I just try to support artists in the game. The couple songs I heard he made was hot. I wanna hear his 2nd single. If its hot I’ll supportr him. I’ll buy his cd so he can continue to stop selling crack in the community. Its about more than just music to me.

    Hahaha “They’re cheatin themselves.” What is he talking about! Nobody is paying money for this album no matter what songs it has on it. If he’s worried about people not hearing “key” songs, then he should have taken time with this album and made it hot so it didn’t matter. Demetrius, you don’t have to kiss ass, Shawty Lo ain’t gonna see you doing it.
