It’s a new joint from Oakland’s newest band of brothers, as current hitmaker D-Lo drops the track “Coppers” featuring his brother, Sleepy D. While D-Lo sticks to his recipe of insanely deep bass, handclaps, and that (now) recognizable high-pitched bark, he strays from the in-your-face-ness of “No Hoe,” utilizing synth rumbles to construct a melodic bass line. After being raised in deep Oakland and serving around a year in prison (right as he was trying to get his career off the ground), D-Lo, has a certain resentment for the local authorities, “See it’s a big difference, in songs, between ‘No Hoe’ and ‘Coppers’,” says D-Lo, “‘Coppers’ is more of a concept, more about how the police can try, but they can never catch us.” He has chosen the right way to express his experience with the police, as “Coppers” is set to bump in every Grand Impala that rolls around the Bay Area. Check out this track and the rest of D-Lo’s newest material on the Clear Label Records compilation, The Tonite Show with D-Lo, available now everywhere.
