B-Real’s Next Solo Album Will Be Produced By Scott Storch
Things are ramping up in the Cypress Hill camp. Tomorrow, DJ Muggs is releasing Dia Del Asesinato, his latest Soul Assassins creation. Meanwhile, last week, C.H. gave fans the first real taste of next month’s Elephants On Acid album. The psychedelic video single “Band Of Gypsies” shows the crew with its producer/DJ back at the sonic helm.
If that were not enough, B-Real has confirmed his upcoming solo plan. Speaking with HipHopDX‘s Kyle Eustice, “Dr. Greenthumb” revealed that he is fast at work on a collaborative project with veteran hit-maker, Scott Storch. “I put out a free album maybe two years ago called The Prescription that I’ve put up on all the streaming sites and what not,” says the host of The Smokebox. “That was something that I just recently put out, but yeah, I’m currently working on a solo album with Scott Storch right now. We’re almost done with that. [I am] definitely excited about that one.”
In a recent Instagram post, Storch alluded to stealing B-Real’s “roaches” out of the ashtray. This is presumably from when Cypress Hill was signed to RuffHouse/Sony Records, and recording at the famed Studio 4 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania—co-owned by the label co-founder, Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo.
While the former member of The Roots has not produced for Cypress or B-Real to date, he’s made songs with B’s Serial Killers partner Xzibit, as well as Snoop Dogg, WC, Dr. Dre. He has made hits with Beyoncé, Terror Squad, Fat Joe, and others.
In addition to Prophets Of Rage, Serial Killers, and a collaborative effort with Taylor Gang’s Berner, B-Real has several solo projects. In 2009, he partnered with Duck Down for Smoke N Mirrors. That effort includes production from Alchemist, Fred Wreck, and Soopafly. In recent years, B-Real has become a producer, taking much of 2010’s Rise Up himself.
Last month, Vevo produced a documentary on the life and career of Scott Storch:
