MC Eiht Drops ‘Represent Like This,’ With WC and DJ Premier Before New Album [LISTEN]
MC Eiht's first album in a decade will arrive very soon, and it's appropriately titled Which Way Iz West. It'll be executive produced by DJ Premier, who also crafted four tracks on the LP.
In addition, features on the project include an impressive list of talent from the West, East and South, including WC, B-Real, Xzibit, Lady of Rage, Kurupt, MayLAy, Big Mike, The Outlawz and Bumpy Knuckkes, otherwise known as Freddie Foxxx.
There's a chance that you might've heard Eiht's Preemo-produced "Runn the Blocc," released back in October. But the official single for the new LP is called "Represent Like This," featuring WC and Preem, produced by Brenk Sinatra.
"I decided to release the Dub C track first as an ode to true West Coast music, and because Dub is a true West Coast originator," said Eiht in a press statement. "I wanted to give fans a familiar taste of what we're about, and due to Crazy Toones passing away, it just seemed like the appropriate way to honor my cousins, as they were one of the first artists I had the honor of rocking with early in my career."
You can listen to "Represent Like This" below and cop the legendary rapper's Which Way Iz West album on June, 9.
