Marking a major moment six-years-in-the-making, acclaimed Atlanta rapper Ralo makes his anxiously awaited comeback. He just dropped off his “First Day Out” single and broke the news of his official signing to 300 Entertainment.

The song signals the beginning of the next chapter for the Georgia rapper, who was just released from prison this past Wednesday (November 8).

On the track, piano pierces through thick 808s as his signature delivery rings out. Introspective and thoughtful rhymes give way to a promise as he urges, “I’d die for this shit, I swear to God I will,” before he assures, “Don’t you ask me who I choose, ‘cause I choose the Lord.”

Ralo was arrested back in April of 2018, after police claimed they discovered nearly $1 million worth of marijuana on the rapper’s private plane at Dekalb-Peachtree Airport in Atlanta.

About the song, Ralo revealed: “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. I chose to love over the streets. I chose to love over everything that has happened in the world. So I wanted to highlight that because there’s a lot of wickedness going on.”

He continued, “A lot of people trying to sabotage one another and trying to knock each other down so they can stand over the next man. I just wanted the world to know I’m satisfied, I’m humble. I’m appreciative, and I’m grateful for what I got. I’m happy with everything I’ve accomplished thus far and I hope to keep continuing to build.”

Regarding Ralo’s signing, 300 Entertainment Co-Presidents Rayna Bass and Selim Bouab said: “The first time you hear Ralo, you never forget him. There’s pain and raw truth in his voice, and it cuts deep. He’s quietly left an imprint on rap, and so many fans have been counting the days to this moment. He’s going to deliver with the best music of his career so far. We promise it was worth the wait, and we’re honored to be part of his return.”
