“Hood Poet,” Polo G’s fourth studio album, was initially slated for release on September 15. According to a statement posted on Instagram by the Chicago rapper, that is no longer the case.
Wanted to Tap Back in and Let You Know I’m Delaying the Release of My Album Until Further Notice…I’m just getting back on track after a brief setback, but I’ll be updating you all and releasing new music soon, so stay tuned. I thank those who have been patient with me, and the wait will be worthwhile, I promise.
This all comes after Polo and his brother Trench Baby were arrested twice in 24 hours, at their Los Angeles home, last month. Polo was arrested for gun possession, and his brother was arrested for robbery. An arsenal of weapons and drugs were also found in the home, which went on to be confiscated by police.
However, according to TMZ, Polo G’s upcoming concerts are still on. This includes a show in New Mexico in October, touring in Europe, as well as performing in Canada in December. This also comes after Polo took to Twitter/X to reveal that he’s considering retirement from music, after the Hood Poet album is released.
