Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too Short, and E-40’s Supergroup Announces New Album and Live Debut

Too Short confirms Mt. Westmore is “really real” and a debut album is on the way.

Late last year, Too Short and E-40 announced they had formed a rap supergroup with fellow West Coast rap legends, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube.

Originally mentioned somewhat in passing during their interview with The Breakfast Club, the concept for Mt. Westmore is just as the name implies: a collaborative outing from (arguably) the most influential West Coast rappers in history. But it appears the group was more than just a fleeting thought. According to Short, Mt. Westmore has aleardy recorded dozens of songs together and is prepping the first “volume” of their work.

“It’s not a thing we dreamed up. It’s a thing that is really real. We have recorded somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 songs,” the Oakland rapper said in a recent chat with VladTV (see below.) “Volume One will be released in April,” he added before noting the joint project was a logical next step after years of performing on different bills together. The arrival of the supergroup’s debut album will likely line up with their first live performance, currently set for April 17th at Triller’s next Fight Club event, where they’ll share the marquee with Doja Cat, Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Saweetie, Diplo and Major Lazer.

The four-hour pay-per-view event will cap with a fight between (actual) boxer, Ben Askren, and Youtube-star-turned-boxer, Jake Paul, who notoriously knocked out the NBA’s Nate Robinson in Triller’s previous boxing event. You can buy a “ticket” to the next fight here.

A precise release date for the Mt. Westmore album has yet to be announced. But it shouldn’t be too long now. Watch Too Short detail the project below and hold tight for updates in the weeks and months ahead.
