The Cypress Hill disc-spinner enlists the services of Zack de la Rocha and GZA...

Cypress Hill‘s DJ Muggs is currently working on a new solo album, slated to feature appearances from Rage Against The Machine‘s ZACK DE LA ROCHA, WU-TANG CLAN‘s GZA, MOBB DEEP and KOOL G RAP.

A spokesperson for Muggs told that the DJ was keen to release the new album through Cypress Hill‘s label, Soul Assassins Records. He added the record would feature some established hip-hop artists, as well as giving new rappers the chance to showcase their skills, although he could not confirm who is on the album.

However, according to reports on [url=], the album will be called ‘The Soul Assassins: Chapter Two’, and will feature appearances from GZA, Zack de la Rocha, Mobb Deep, Kool G Rap and Goodie MOB.


The album will be the second to be recorded by the Cypress Hill DJ, and is the follow-up to the 1997 album ‘Muggs Presents The Soul Assassins’, which featured guest performances from Dr Dre, B-Real, KRS One and The Fugees.

Cypress Hill plan to release a new single in the UK in early July. The band are currently deciding on which tracks to use from their recent album ‘Skull & Bones’, but it is expected that it will be a double A-side release, with one track hip-hop, the other rock.

The band also return to the UK in June, playing the London Brixton Academy on June 21, followed by a show at the Glasgow Barrowlands the following night (22).
