Atlanta foursome D4L broke out in 2005 using the tune “Laffy Taffy,” one of the crossover monitors released through the early 2000s to inspire revelry normally as contempt, based on listeners’ tolerance for cleverly produced monitors with clear hooks and crude sexual euphemisms. Originally released separately around D4L’s indigenous Atlanta, the tune would ultimately climb to number 1 within the Billboard Sizzling 100 in 2006. The group — created in 2003 by Fa-bo, Mook-B, Stoney, and Shawty Lo — had been snapped up from the Atlantic-distributed Asylum for the discharge of their debut. Down forever premiered in November 2005 and strike the very best 25. Though it was the group’s only release, users of the group would attempt solo careers, especially frontman Shawty Lo. On Sept 21, 2016, he was wiped out inside a hit-and-run incident outdoors an Atlanta golf club at age 40.
