J-Hood Q & A

Drank and Dank recently caught up with Yonkers own, J-Hood for a quick Q & A. We asked him if he still listens to the music he recorded for D-Block, what new artists he's checking for (none,) & what's the best J-Hood CD's.
How did you end up recording with Chingy?
Chingy is my dude, he was on my original album that was supposed to drop on D-Block.

What else does O.D.G. (On Da Grind) have planned this year?
 We have a list of different things dropping this year, from mixtapes to DVD's.

Do you think your versatility as an artist is appreciated?
Not as much as it needs to be. A lot of people sleep on me now that I'm not with the Block any more.
