Barely Holdin’ On” rapper Polo G has quickly become one of the leaders of rap’s new school. Since the release his debut album Die A Legend, in 2019, the Chicago native hasn’t deviated from his annual tradition of dropping a new project for fans. That could change in 2019. So, why is Polo G’s forthcoming album, Hood Poet, being delayed?

On August 12, Polo G took to his official Instagram page to announce the album (which at the time was scheduled for Friday, September 15) via a new diamond necklace with accent lavender stones, an elaborate pendant, and other tricked-out personal modifications made by IceBox Diamonds & Watches. By September 9, however, he shocked his fans by announcing the project would not be dropping.

Polo G revealed to his fans yesterday (September 14) in an online exchange (formerly Twitter) why he decided to postpone the release of the album. When asked outright by a follower, Polo G replied, “[I] was going through some sh*t, gang. We’re still pushing. [forward] though. You know that.”

Although Polo G did not state specifics, the sh*t he’s referring to could be tied to his recent arrest (August 23) for alleged kidnapping charges, robbery charges, and assaults with deadly weapons. Polo G would have a difficult time touring and traveling for press if he were involved in such a large legal battle.

Following the incident, Polo G’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, released a statement Read the full statement below. Please read the entire statement below.

“The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo’s home and not Polo directly. The officers have detained Polo to ‘verify’ that he is not a convicted felon, as they assert a firearm was found in the home. Polo has never been convicted of a crime and is not one. When he was wrongly arrested and charged, I got his Miami charges dismissed. We were denied access to our client. This is illegal and unethical. Someone will be held accountable for this new wrongdoing. We are hopeful the LAPD will handle this matter with tact and transparency.”
