Legendary hip-hop producer and Cypress Hill founder DJ Muggs has released his highly anticipated album Dia Del Asesinato today via Soul Assassins Records with a new animated video for “Assassination Day (Trust No One)” feat. DOOM. The album includes collaborations with DOOM, Raekwon, Freddie Gibbs, Kool G Rap, Meyhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy, Hus Kingpin, and Eto.
The album comes on the heels of Muggs’ hot streak of collab-projects with Meyhem Lauren including 2017’s Gems From The Equinox and this year’s Frozen Angels EP. Dia Del Asesinato is a conceptual album with an underlying theme of hip-hop combating corruption in society and government. Muggs has already dropped visuals for album highlights “Yacht Party” feat. Raekwon and “Death Wish” feat. DOOM, which showcase the LP’s overarching motifs. The dystopic new video for “Assassination Day (Trust Noone)” feat. DOOM continues the narrative depicting Kanye West as U.S. President.
Limited edition color vinyl pressings, cassettes, and CD’s are available now on SoulAssassins.com, including a special version of the vinyl made in collaboration with Madlib‘s Rappcats website with a unique cover, in an edition of 400 with 300 to be sold online and 100 to be sold at a special Dia Del Asesinato x Rappcats album event in LA on August 19th. DJ Muggs has kept busy; in addition to Dia Del Asesinato, Cypress Hill recently announced that they have signed with BMG and are releasing a new album Elephants on Acid produced entirely by Muggs, due out September 28th.
Today he shares another video for “Duck Sauce” from the LP, a menacing track courtesy of Rochester, NY upstart and new Soul Assassins artist Eto. Check out Muggs and Eto in the raw video and listen to Dia Del Asesinato now. DJ Muggs also also has an exclusive Soul Assassins merch drop in collaboration with clothing brand Diamond Supply which will be available via the Soul Assassin’s pop-up shop and event taking place at the Diamond Supply location on Fairfax in LA this coming Saturday August 18th.
