Oakland's D-Lo gained national attention back in 2007 when he went into his friend's studio alone one night to find his swag on the mic. The result was an instant classic with a stomping, minimalist beat and infectious, racous lyrics. That song was "No Hoe" and eventually lead to a popular remix with Bar Area ambassador and legend, E-40.

In 2012, D-Lo saw even greater success and increased radio play with the Tyga assisted song, "Get Her Tho". The video, garnered 1.5 million views on YouTube and had well over 3,000 spins on radio with heavy concentrations up and down the West Coast and relevant airplay in the midwest and south.
