Atlanta rapper Gorilla Zoe has announced he will be releasing a new studio album entitled, King Kong, on October 26.

The album announcement comes on the heels of a new distribution deal for G. Zoe’s current label, Block Entertainment, who recently completed contract negotiations that partners Block Ent./Atlantic Records with Entertainment One.

Block Entertainment CEO, Russell “Block” Spencer, offered this statement on the new partnership,

“A new era of Block Entertainment is launching through my partnership with eOne and Atlantic. Gorilla Zoe is first up on my team to takeover with his third solo album, King Kong.”

Block was responsible for creating Boyz N Da Hood, and releasing Young Joc’s albums New Joc City and Hustlenomics, Boyz N Da Hood’s sophomore LP Back Up in Da Chevy, as well as Gorilla Zoe’s solo albums.

He completed a partnership with music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs for a seminal multi-million-dollar label deal between Bad Boy South and Block Entertainment in 2006.
