As one of the pioneers of the G-Funk movement, Pomona, California’s Big Hutch (a/k/a Cold 187um) made history alongside N.W.A., The D.O.C. and J.J. Fad in making Ruthless Records a household name, with his group Above The Law. Last year, ATL released Sex, Money & Music on Beatology Records. Additionally, Hutch, who spent several years in the last decade incarcerated for drug convinctions, has released three solo albums, in addition to production for Eazy E, MC Ren and longtime affiliate Kokane.

HipHopDX learned this week that Hutch, who released Fresh Out The Pen in 2008, is planning two releases for next year. Hutch’s management notified DX that the musician and producer has Only God Can Judge Me coming next January, and O.G. Since 1967 planned for next summer.

Both albums will release on Hutch’s own West World Records/Big Shot Music Group.
