According to a statement released by the former D-Block affiliate, J-Hood is prepping his debut album The Hood Is Back for release on November 6th. The project will reportedly feature 20 rare and exclusive tracks, although it's unclear whether any of the material will be the music he recorded while under contract with D-Block. "This is my first indie release for my fans all over," says Hood. "While this is in the stores, I'ma have The Rebirth mixtape warming up the streets...So whether your in stores or in the streets, your gonna see me!"

Hood recently made news after leaving D-Block, when he appeared on stage with former rival 50 Cent and released a video dragging his former crew's chain down the sidewalk.
