Juelz Santana’s Skull Gang To Drop Debut LP
Juelz Santana, who spoke to XXLMag.com recently about his unwillingness to reconcile with Cam’ron for a possible Dipset reunion, is forging forward with his own crew, Skull Gang. Their self-titled debut album will be released on May 5 on E1 Music (formerly Koch Records).
Along with Santana, Skull Gang consists of Richmond, VA rapper Rabb; Raleigh, N.C MC Deniro Lloyd Banks’ cousin John Depp from Queens, N.Y. and three acts from Julez’ hometown of Harlem: R&B singer Starr, Riq Rose and Dipset associate UnKasa.
“I’m extremely excited about this Skull Gang Album,” said Santana in a statement. “I hand picked each member over a period of two years. Each of them brings something different to the table and I can’t wait to see their talent take off.”
Last year the group put out their first mixtape, Takeover: the New Movement to Move Wit, to great fanfare. The disc, which was available for free online, received over three million downloads.
