DJ Premier to Produce MC Eiht’s New Album

There was a time when you’d be hard pressed to see an East Coast producer working with a West Coast artist, but those days are long gone. Legendary beatsmith DJ Premier recently announced plans to executive produce and score O.G. rapper MC Eiht’s new album, Which Way Is West, which will be released through Preemo’s Year Round Records.

With a career that spans two decades—the veteran made his debut as a member of Compton’s Most Wanted in 1990—Eiht made a name for himself in film as well as music. In fact, most fans remember him for his role in the hood classic, Menace II Society.

Which Way Is West will be Eiht’s first release since his 2006 album, Affiliated. In addition to Premier’s tracks, the project will also feature productions from Marco Polo and guest appearances by Year Round artists NYGz.

Fans can expect Which Way Is West to hit stores this summer. —Donovan Moore
