Serial-Killer: “a person who attacks and kills victims one by one in a series of incidents.” When B-Real, the front-man of the legendary hip hop group Cypress Hill conceptualized his next group effort, he envisioned putting together a team of emcees with the sole purpose of murdering every track and any competition. The first member he reached out to was fellow West Coast legend Xzibit, known for his brash vocals and hard hitting lyrics.
At the time the two artists were sharing a studio in Los Angeles and were both working with an up and coming emcee by the name of Demrick (formerly known as Young De). While working in the studio the three began collaborating on songs and as Xzibit stated in a recent interview “It was organic and took a natural progression.”
When interviewed in March of 2010 Demrick hinted to the fact that with everyone’s schedules it would be some time before hearing a completed Serial Killers project. The three remained close, continued to work and tour, both independently and together. Recently B-Real and Xzibit sat down to speak about the project and said that they were both excited that it’s finally complete.
With a release date set for Halloween, Oct 31st, the two went on to say that they were confident with the body of work and that it would surprise new and old fans alike.
