'Now that's a list of names,no lies detected. If you are going to make a Mt Westmore that's who you want,' a fan said
Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too Short and E-40 stans, climb aboard the hype train as the four rappers are set to drop a new era of music: this time as a joint group. The hip-hop veterans have announced a new supergroup, called Mt. Westmore.
Furthermore, the news comes with a promise of music scheduled to arrive next month. According to reports, the rappers will release their debut album in April, with more "volumes" releasing in the future. According to Too Short, the supergroup is also a way to extend the artists' business ventures. Fans can look forward to tours as well.
Officially announcing the collaborative project in a recent interview with DJ Vlad, Too Short revealed that Mt. Westmore has dozens of tracks already recorded: "We have recorded somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 songs. Volume 1 will be released in April and the rest of the volumes will follow."
The hip-hop icon continued, "And this is serious shit. We did this because we wanted to do some business ventures together and we wanted to join forces to future tour together," and expressed that "everybody's real sharp on business."
"At the age we’re at is a good time to do a thing like this and kind of extend your career a bit in a different way… The minute we join forces, we get a handful of new business opportunities that none of us would’ve had.”
During his appearance on an MC Serch podcast in December, Too Short revealed more details. He said, "I get a call during the early part of the quarantine from E-40 and Ice Cube going, ‘Man, we feel like we should do an album. Me, you, it’s E-40, Cube, Too Short and Snoop Dogg’."
"And I’m like… ‘E-40 and Too Short are from the Bay, Snoop Dogg and Cube are from L.A. and we are like the West Coast foundation.’ We sat there and was like, ‘Fuck it, let’s do it.’ So, we start coming up with beats." Additionally, in another interview with HipHopDX, the rapper shared that Dr. Dre will feature on the new album.
Down in the comments section for the interview up on YouTube, and fans are totally up for the supergroup. "Definitely gonna support Mt. Westmore!!!" said a fan while another wrote, "Cant wait for the westmore album drop! Bring it on!!!"
One fan said, "Now that's a list of names,no lies detected. If you are going to make a Mt Westmore that's who you want...be cool to see DJ Quik tho..or ICE T."
Another fan commented, "Too short's definitely been around the world a few times with all the people he knows all from music!!! 🔥 🔥."
"Ice Cube has always been in my top 10. Im 43,when i was 12 NWA was everything and Ice Cube was the talk in magazines and the hood when he left the group. AMW came out and thats the first tape i ever stole from Sam Goody. The good ole days looking ass boy..." shared a fan.
