First things first: If you call yourself a thorough West Coast rap fan, and you don’t know who Big Hutch, aka Cold 187um is, we may just have to revoke your Hip-Hop pass.
The Cali-born rapper/producer is a legend, a G-Funk pioneer and all around West Coast icon. Known to frequent the same circles as Eazy-E/Ruthless Records, N.W.A, Kokane, Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound, Hutch — nephew to soul singer Willie Hutch — is also known for his tenure with Pomona, CA rap group Above the Law.
Today, Hutch liberates his newest single, “Hustle Hard” featuring Too $hort and E-40. Hear it below, and stay tuned for his upcoming LP, The Black Godfather, due out June 3.
If you’re a little tired of hearing VIEWS on repeat, this banger will definitely cleanse your palette.
