DJ Muggs & Raekwon offer a different take on yacht rock

Check the mobbed up clip for "Yacht Party" off the forthcoming Soul Assassins album Dia Del Asesinato due out today. 
Legendary hip-hop producer and Cypress Hill founder DJ Muggs has released his highly anticipated album Dia Del Asesinato today via Soul Assassins Records. The album includes collaborations with MF DOOM, Raekwon, Freddie Gibbs, Kool G Rap, Meyhem Lauren, Mach-Hommy, Hus Kingpin, and Eto.

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 (watch the clip below) 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, 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.
