MC Eiht revealed the news this week, on his newly-launched Twitter account. The emcee announced the group, and said that videos had been shot for “Killin’ Me Softly” with another planned for “Keep It CPT.”
Previously, MC Eiht was a member of The Warzone, a Snoop Dogg-backed group also consisting of Kam and Goldie Loc. The trio never released an album, despite several high-profile appearances.
