Kansas City rapper Big Scoob is set to drop his new album, Damn Fool! next week on Tech N9ne’s Strange Music label.

"Growing up in the 'hood in Kansas City, a damn fool, that was me!" Big Scoob said in a statement. "I'd stick to my whiskey bottle, go as hard as I wanted to. But now I'm seeing the effects of that over the long term, so I'm in a position to tell cautionary tales. Don't worry, I got jokes!"

The 26-track album features guest appearances from Messy Marv, Bumpy Knuckles, Glasses Malone and labelmates Jay Rock and  Krizz Kaliko.

Starting in May, Scoob will appear on select dates of Tech N9ne's All 6s & 7s tour.

"When I let my personality out on tour,” Scoob said, “cats like Fat Joe and E-40 were howling and said 'You a damn fool!' Tech N9ne was watching and told me, 'That's what I want you to give people on this new album.'"

Scoob’s Damn Fool! hits stores on Tuesday, May 3. —Lauren Carter
