The true hip-hop heads know MC Eiht is good for more than a guest verse. The Compton legend teams up with the famously Tupac Shakur-affiliated Outlawz for “Shut Em Down,” which comes with a Jae Synth-directed video set in Los Angeles, Calif.
The black-and-white clip matches the grittiness of the rhymes as the OGs draw inspiration from street-earned toughness: “Outlaw riders, the movement official/ Shake your whole world with a pen or a pistol.” That’s a “Do Not F With”-type of statement.
Which Way Iz West, MC Eiht’s first album in eight years (coincidence?) is on its way.
