Background[edit]

In early 2009 Lil Scrappy announced the title for his second studio album, Tha Grustle (a combination of (Hustle & Grind)) and that he had signed with Ludacris label DTP and that it would be distributed through Def Jam.[1] On November 2, 2011 after the album never saw an official release, Lil Scrappy announced that the album would be released in early 2012. Lil Scrappy also announced that he and DTP had parted ways and that his G's Up imprint has partnered with S-Line, a company owned by Lil Scappy's manager Kevin Clark. G's Up/S-Line has embarked on a joint venture with Bonzi Records, a label owned by platinum producer J. Wells & was distributed by Fontana/Universal.[2] After a long wait Tha Grustle was finally released on June 26, 2012.

Singles[edit]

On September 8, 2009 Lil Scrappy released the first single from the album entitled "Addicted To Money", which features fellow Atlantan rapper, Ludacris, yet it failed to reach the Billboard charts so it was dubbed as a promo single. Then On September 28, 2010 Lil Scrappy released the first single from the album "Bad (That's Her)" which featured Stuey Rock but it also failed to reach the billboard charts so it was dubbed as promo single. The official first single from the album was "Helicopter" it featured 2 Chainz & Twista.[3][4] The music video premiered on MTV Jams, and was directed by Edgar Esteves. The second single from the album is entitled "No Love" featuring upcoming singer Toccara the official music video for it gained 100,000 views on YouTube of its first week & has since received 3 Million.[5][6]
