20 years after releasing the classic debut album with his group Above The Law, entitled Livin’ Like Hustlers, west coast rap vet Big Hutch (a.k.a. Cold 187um) is set to drop his first new album in nearly three years.
The new album, titled Only God Can Judge Me, is set to drop later this month through his own West World Records label, distributed by Big Shot Music Group/Empire Distribution.
Hutch made history in the 1990s, working alongside the late Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, NWA, D.O.C., J.J. Fad and is known for discovering Long Beach spitter and Slaugherhouse member, Crooked I, as well as the group 213, consisting of Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and the late Nate Dogg.
Also, for about two years, Big Hutch was made V.P. of the infamous Death Row Records by then music mogul Suge Knight, replacing labelmate Daz Dilligner, and was the music supervisor for the late Tupac’s Till The End of Time album, and many more releases.
After serving time in prison for drug related offenses in 2004, Big Hutch followed up his 1999 debut with Fresh Out The Pen.
Now, with a new outlook on the music business of today and concentrating solely on West World Records, Big Hutch has teamed up with music marketing strategist, Michael “Big Shot” Oronde Wright, CEO of Big Shot Music Group record label.
His upcoming 14-track album features his up-and-coming West World Records roster, as well as newly reformed group and labelmate LeVert II, and others.
