Snoop Dogg has teamed up with Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40 for a brand-new rap supergroup called Mt Westmore.
The West Coast rappers are reportedly set to drop their debut release sometime next month. According to Stereogum, the collective came together during the pandemic and their first album will feature contributions from Dr Dre. The group have recorded 50 songs and there are more plans for Mt Westmore in the works, Too $hort said in an interview with DJ Vlad.
“And this is serious shit,” the rapper said. “We did this because we wanted to do some business ventures together and we wanted to join forces to tour together [in the future].” Too $hort added that the collaboration just meant better business opportunities for all.
“Everybody’s real sharp on business and I think at the age we’re at, it’s a good time to do a thing like this and kinda extend your career a bit in a different way. Not just because we’ll be doing shows and albums, but because everybody has something going on. But the minute we join forces we get a handful of new business opportunities that none of us would have [on our own].” Watch the interview below:
A release date for Mt Westmore’s debut project has not yet been announced. However, the group will make their first-ever live performance in Triller Network’s upcoming Triller Fight Club. Taking place on April 17, the four-hour, pay-per-view broadcast will also feature performances by Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie and more, per The Hollywood Reporter.
