Since his trial came to a decisive conclusion on July 31st of 2014, DoughBoyz Cashout representative, Dre Armany has been pushing his talents to the back burner.
However, this does not mean that Dre has not been putting in work behind the scenes. Come this Saturday, the results are sure to show as the CTE signee gets set to release his first official breakout project since signing his major label deal with Atlantic Records in 2013.
The album titled “Not Guilty“, gives a brief synopsis in itself on what the main focus of the album talks about. After his group members (DoughBoyz Cashout) dropped their “BYLUG” mixtape, they were on top of their game and rising up the charts. Key members of the group were often being seen in the public eye with the likes of Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti, and a list of other celebrities, while Dre was back home in Detroit fighting a case after being accused of attempted murder. Without a doubt, Dre’s main focus was no longer on music, but more so on trying to come out of his situation victorious. Near the end of the 2014 summer, Dre was acquitted on all counts and found not guilty, which leads us into his current studio project.
For those who may not be familiar with the details behind the trial, Dre breaks it down all throughout the album, including his lead single “Not Guilty.” Although the project is reminiscent to the classic DBC sound that we’ve all grown to know and love, Dre reaches outside of Detroit talent to collaborate with producers from Ontario, Canada as well for some added versatility to his sound. While talent such as, Tyron Vasquez (an R&B artists from Philadelphia) and Juicy Badazz (an artist signed under Boosie’s ‘BadAzzEnt’ label) appear on the album, what’s an official DBC project without a handful of features from the BYLUG crew?
Dre Armani’s latest protect, “Not Guilty“, will be available for download and stream on iTunes and Spotify on Saturday, June 20th.
