West Coast supergroup Mount Westmore have dropped some “Free Game” on the second single from their forthcoming debut album, Snoop Cube 40 $hort.
On the electro-funk-driven track, E-40 sprinkles in some jewels for the mind before Snoop promotes Black ownership and self-empowerment. $hort Dog and Cube follow, offering valuable life lessons at no extra cost.
The accompanying visual, which is directed by Cam Busby, sees all four rappers pull off a successful heist — check it out below.
Mount Westmore will drop their 16-track Snoop Cube 40 $hort LP on December 9 after initially being available exclusively via blockchain under the title Bad MFs over the summer. The release to streamers will include additional tracks that weren’t featured in the original drop.
“You know what it is,” Cube said at the time of the Bad MFs release. “Mount Westmore — you got the four pillars of West Coast Hip Hop. We are down with Gala Music. We are coming out with that Mount Westmore BAD MFs album. There is going to be new music, new experiences, shows, everything that the Westmore got, baby, you gonna get it.”
The effort comes nearly two years after the group first formed – which HipHopDX broke the news about after obtaining an exclusive clip from MC Serch featuring an interview with Too $hort.
“I get a call during the early part of the quarantine from E-40 and Ice Cube going, ‘Man, we feel like we should do an album. Like me, you … it’s E-40, Cube, Too $hort and Snoop Dogg,” $hort told Serch during a conversation for his Serch Says podcast.
“And I’m like — E-40 and Too $hort from the Bay, Snoop Dogg and Cube are from L.A. and we like the West Coast foundation. We sat there and was like, ‘Fuck it, let’s do it.’ So, we start coming up with beats.”
A few months later in April 2021, the group released their first single at Triller’s Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren fight, and have since kept their momentum going leading up to their forthcoming debut.
