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.

In related news Santana is also gearing up for the release of his own solo mixtape. The Reagan Era, set to hit the streets later this month. – Devin Chanda

      “pork chop drowse” LOL

      Old school slang would imply that “Skull Gang” is the fellatio crew and “Byrd Gang” is the chickenhead click.

      Go figure…

      • Master Cheef

  • xlwhite

    ill cop his solo album(and the collabo with wayne if/when it comes out), but ill only listen to him in one group, and it aint skullgang. one

  • Kani

    I just can’t get on the Juelz shit for some reason. This nigga’s delivery is so garbage and his only claim to fame is his swag…which is what all garbage rappers rely on.

  • fireforreal

    First of all I find it hard to believe they had 3 million downloads for there mixtape. 50 didn’t even have that much with his elephant in the sand mixtape and that did 100,000. 2. These rappers need to stop just putting out there homies and search for real artist’s with talent instead. Juelz is the only one who I’m feeling. Save that skull gang bullshit for mixtapes only.

  • keyser soze

    Juelz is such a poser! The Reagan Era!! LOL How old is this Nigga? 24? 25? The Regan era? Why do these niggaz try to pretend they’re older than they are! ??

  • Rex Banner

    Am I the only one who likes Un Kasa better than Juelz? I have been a fan of that nigga since I first heard him on the diplomatic immunity album. I probably might pick this up. I gotta hear it first though, but I have a feeling it will be wack lol cuz juelz fell off so bad

  • What the ?

    Yeah, Un Kassa better man.

    Juelz is the biggest Cam clone available, no Cam = no Juelz on the map, that’s why this clown is a fraud talkin smack about his teacher/protege in recent interviews. Cam is the single reason anyone even knows who Juelz is, then the whole dip shit set wanna talk shit behind Cams back, unloyal ass pussy clots.
