The October 20 issue of Billboard features a small write up called "Hood Figures", which talks about Boyz N Da Hood and Gorilla Zoe and why Zoe's album solid more copies than the group's. They quote Block, "When you have a [regional] group like Boyz N Da Hood, you need that label machine to take it to different regions like Los Angeles and New York. Zoe taking off the way he did took much of the focus away from Boyz N Da Hood. There's only so much a label can focus on at a time." I'm not real sure about that, but he also points out that they were focused on Zoe because "Hood Figga" was getting more radio play than "Everybody Know Me". That is certainly true.
