Raekwon & DJ Muggs Make A Wu-Tang/Cypress Hill Connection Over Luxury Beats & Rhymes (Video)
After chopping up a couple of singles with MF DOOM, and dropping some Sin City-esque, revenge-fueled animated visuals featuring both DOOM and Freddie Gibbs for the single, “Death Wish,” Cypress Hill co-founder DJ Muggs enters the fold once again.
Belonging to Muggs’ forthcoming album, Dia Del Asesinato (August 10), Muggs links up with Wu-Tang Clan’s Shallah Raekwon for his latest video single, “Yacht Party.” Layered over a rich, warm, and lavish sample produced by the Soul Assassins O.G., Raekwon flexes some quintessentially mafioso ambiance on the mic, giving listeners hot new prose with an old school flow.
DJ Muggs album, Dia Del Asesinato, will drop next Friday. The 12 track project will also feature fellow Queens, New York native, Kool G Rap, along with Meyhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy, and Hus Kingpin.
