Young Dro was putting the finishing touches on his album P.O.L.O. (Players Only Live Once) when he walked into the Grand Hustle office and found out the entire LP was already on the Internet.
“When I walked in the office, couldn’t nobody look me in the eye,” Dro said. “They was looking down. You had Jim Jonsin beats, some of the best production I ever had on there. When I saw it I was like, ‘Oh my God. OMG.’ But then I said, ‘I’m gonna patch it up.’ “
Dro shook off the shock and came to accept the fact that he would have to record more songs.
“The album got leaked, so we going back in the studio,” he explained. “We gonna get Cannon beats, we gonna get DJ Toomp beats, we gonna sew the album up and act like it ain’t never bled. No leak.”
P.O.L.O. is now slated to drop sometime in January 2010.
In the meantime, Dro says he’s thinking about putting out five mixtapes — the first is R.I.P.: (I Killed That Sh–) with DJ Don Cannon.
