Los Angeles, CA – Hip Hop pioneers Compton’s Most Wanted (CMW) helped usher in the West Coast gangsta rap scene in the ’80s and ’90s. Spearheaded by MC Eiht and Tha Chill, the group released six albums, including the 1992 classic, Music To Driveby.
After CMW dropped Compton’s O.G. in 2006, they went their separate ways but that’s all about to change. In an exclusive statement to HipHopDX, Eiht confirmed a new CMW album is in the works and expected to arrive sometime this summer.
“I’m workin,” Eiht told DX. “I’ll be ready in June. I’ll have two videos — one from my solo album and one from CMW. That’s BLUESTAMP ficial. Geah!”
In addition to the CMW project, Eiht is finishing up his Keep It Hood 2 EP. The project serves as the follow-up to 2013’s Keep It Hood, which he released on the BLUESTAMP Music imprint he founded five years ago.
Eiht, who was featured on Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d City in 2012, is also finishing up the sequel to 2017’s Which Way Iz West, the aptly titled Which Way Iz West II.
