HipHopDX Premiere – MC Eiht has recruited fellow Compton’s Most Wanted MC Tha Chill for his new “How U Do That” video.
Directed by Jae Synth, the visual finds the two seasoned vets strolling through the streets of Compton, lifting weights, smoking blunts and streiht chillin’ as they spit about life and the things they’ve experienced coming up in the hood.
“Jus tryna reflect on old school flavor, no dramatics and outlandish [behavior],” Eiht tells HipHopDX. “Just a simple life, simple times and neighborhood music for the soul.”
The laid back track comes from the West Coast gangsta rap legend’s forthcoming double album, Official, and recalls Eiht’s Menace II Society masterpiece, “Streiht Up Menace.”
CMW is also prepping a new album, which is expected to arrive at the end of August. Ahead of its release, the veteran crew will unleash the inaugural single, “No Reason,” this weekend.
Meanwhile, Eiht plans to drop the Official solo project in September. The album follows his 2017 effort Which Way Iz West, a 15-song, star-studded affair executive produced by DJ Premier. The album delivered several impactful cuts, including “Heart Cold” with The Lady Of Rage and “Represent Like This” with WC.
