Ray Earl Lavender (ex-Co Lab Bo): Southern Lovin (EP) (Black Ark Entertainment, 200x)

From tha Dirty $outh, early release from Ray (Earl) Lavender, mostly known for his association with Akon in the mid-2000s and earlier the group Col Lab Bo in 2000. Between 2007-2008, he was signed to Akon's KonLive imprint and released 4 singles, the most widely known being "My Girls Got A Girlfriend" and "Donkey Kong". Previous to this, he was the lead singer of Atlanta, GA group Col Lab Bo known in collectors circuits for their album "The Lock Down" in 2000. Lavender was later redeveloped as a solo artist by the groups manager Andrew Bryan which saw the release of the above single. It was later through him that he met Akon. Sadly he is yet to release an album. The album for the above single sadly went unreleased as did his effort for KonLive "X-Rayted." Many thanks once again to Stuaaart for the contribution.
