Ralo is home after nearly six years in prison following a drug trafficking arrest in 2018, and he’s already got new music on deck.
The Atlanta rapper just dropped off his “First Day Out” single and broke the news of his official signing to 300 Entertainment. Directed by Vinny P, the new visual serves as a celebration of Ralo’s recent release from prison.
Taking a cue from Tee Grizzley‘s breakout hit, the 28-year-old released his new song “First Day Out” on Thursday (November 9) – less than 24 hours after his release.
In a statement, Ralo reflected on being behind bars for nearly six years and expressed gratitude for what he’s accomplished in his music, as well as for what’s still to come.
“I’ve seen since I’ve been incarcerated nearly 6 years everybody choosing sides and becoming allies with one another, and I just wanted to acknowledge that fact that I chose to love over it all,” Ralo said.
On the track, he pledges his allegiance to Gucci Mane, adding that he could never sign to Yo Gotti‘s label because of his loyalty.
“I love Wop so I can’t never sign with CMG/ It ain’t no beef it’s just respect – they gon’ respect this shit,” he raps on the track. “They disrespect this shit, I promise we might wreck this bitch!”
