D4L is a rap group with members Fa-bo, Mook-B, Stoney and Shawty Lo from Atlanta. They formed in 2003 and emerged in late 2005 with the hit single "Laffy Taffy", which reached number one on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 in January 2006. Their debut album, Down 4 Life, was released on November 8, 2005. They were signed to Mike Jones's Record label, Ice Age Entertainment earlier in 2005.
They have a beef with another rap group from Atlanta, Dem Franchize Boyz. D4L claims that Dem Franchize Boyz stole their dance (called the "Doin' It Dance") from them. Sources have opposing reactions on the validity of these claims. In the remix to D4L's song "Laffy Taffy," Busta Rhymes says that "I heard a couple of niggas been tryin' to take the dance y'all niggas created." Also, in their new single, "Betcha Can't Do It Like Me," D4L starts out by saying "you fuckin' thieves," most likely referring to DFB and the controversy.
