About Mount Westmore
The supergroup has released three singles — “Step Child” in January 2021, “Big Subwoofer” in October 2021 and “Bad MFs” in March 2022 — since they first announced their partnership during Triller’s Fight Club in 2021. This is the first time they will be releasing an album.
As per HotNewHipHop, Snoop said, “You bring the legends of the West Coast together, something great will always happen.”
“Cube, 40, Short, and I have been running the game for years. This is the perfect time because each of us brings authentic and new ideas to the table. All four together? That’s magic,” he added.
Making of the album
He said, “I’m going to tell you one thing, one beautiful thing about the process is that early on we all acknowledge that in the studio, we are supreme alphas,” adding, “We’ve always been that way, but on this project, we gave each other the authority to criticize, critique, veto, make suggestions, and just everything is like hands-down, I trust what you saying.”
