MC Eiht's New DJ Premier-Executive Produced Album, 'Which Way Iz West', Will Be Released On 6.30.2017

"Can I get a GEAH!?!?"

For two decades, MC Eiht has been one of hip-hop's most recognizable voices; and undisputedly one of Compton's finest originators & emcees.

A straight menace, MC Eiht burst onto the scene with Compton's Most Wanted's 'Music To Driveby'. Released just months after the LA Riots, 'Music To Driveby' was a manifesto for the nihilism, frustration, & anger that permeated the region and is universally hailed as a Gangsta Rap classic.

Similarly, Eiht also contributed vital components & compositions to genre defining movies, offering the chilling "Growin' Up In The Hood" to "Boyz N The Hood" and following up 'Music To Driveby' with a star turn as A-Wax in "Menace 2 Society", which included his stand-out contribution ("Streight Up Menace") to the movie's soundtrack.

Though accredited as MC Eiht featuring Compton's Most Wanted, Eiht took on a more singular role with 'We Come Strapped', which was certified Gold and peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and his sophomore solo project 'Death Threatz' which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Charts.

While Eiht has always remained active; including an EP release ('Keep It Hood'), his scene-stealing appearance on Kendrick Lamar's 'Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City' ("m.A.A.d City") and his recent contribution ("Central Ave") to DJ Quik & Problem's 'Rosecrans' album (which officially ended his vicious feud with Quik), Eiht gallantly returns with his first solo-album in a decade, 'Which Way Iz West', which will be released on 6.9.2017 and aligns him with DJ Premier, who executive produced the project and also produces four tracks as well (Eiht's long-time collaborator Brenk Sinatra produced the rest of the project). Featured guests on 'Which Way Iz West' include WC, B-Real, Xzibit, Kurupt, Lady Of Rage, MayLAy, Big Mike, The Outlawz, Bumpy Knuckles (aka Freddie Foxxx), & Compton's Most Wanted.

The union of these two legends will be released conjunctly by Eiht's Blue Stamp label & Preemo's Year Round Records imprint. Today, MC Eiht releases his third & final single "Got That", featuring DJ Premier, before 'Which Way Iz West' is officially released.

Eiht stated to XXL:

"This is one of those fierce "100 Miles And Running" tracks. The direction was to focus on what I felt was needed, which is delivery and wordplay. Preem felt the hook, so he added his vocals. I know rapheads want BARS, this is straight flavor"

DJ Premier chimed in:

"I've loved this track ever since the rough draft. When I was mixing the song down, Eiht kept saying :Got That" after the verses and I was going to put some scratches on it. I'm sitting at the board, saying the three lines to myself because I felt like it would fit in the blanks. I decided to go in the booth to record it and see if it would blend with the song. I'm not a fan of my own voice so I sent it back to Eiht for approval and his replay was literally GEAH."
