Block Enterprises, Bad Boy South partner for new mixtape with DJ Drama

Together with The Aphilliates and DJ Drama, Russell “Block” Spencer of Atlanta-based Block Enterprises will soon release a new mixtape featuring some of the South's most promising talent.
American Gangsta: Gangsta Grillz Special Edition will include tracks from the latest Boyz N Da Hood album, Back Up N Da Chevy.

“Someone who is able to take pennies and turn them into dollars is an ‘American Gangsta,’” Spencer told “I was able to do my thing in the streets, take my street education, and use it to build my company, Block Enterprises.”

Other artists featured on the mixtape will include Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Big Kuntry, and T.I.

American Gangsta also highlights Gorilla Zoe, the latest artist signed to Block Enterprises and newest member of Atlanta super-group Boyz N Da Hood.

“You will hear them all on the American Gangsta mixtape, which also includes Zoe’s ‘Hood Nigga,’” Block said. “That song in and of itself is an example of an ‘American Gangsta.’ Zoe is an ‘American Gangsta.’ Like me, he is turning pennies into dollars.”

American Gangsta is another venture between Block Enterprises and Bad Boy South.

The two labels first joined forces for the 2005 release of Boyz N Da Hood's self-titled debut album .

Block Enterprises and Bad Boy South partnered made an impressive debut with Yung Joc's album New Joc City, which spawned hit singles like “It’s Goin Down” and “I Know You See It.”

Both Yung Joc and Boyz N Da Hood are planning on releasing albums this summer.

Boyz N Da Hood's Back Up N Da Chevy is set for June 12 and Yung Joc's Hustlenomics set for a July 10 release date.
