Xzibit, B-Real and Demrick are teaming up once again to form the Serial Killers as this will be their 2nd project as a collective. The trio came out with their first project back in 2012, so after an 8 year gap we are now getting the Summer of Sam album.
The year 2020 has reaffirmed that absolute power corrupts absolutely! Due to our current “leadership” we find ourselves at a tipping point. The trickledown effect of this revelation has infiltrated every fabric of our society; we are at our most divided as divisiveness runs rampant as black men and women are being killed by police every day and systematic racism pervades. We watch the news and become number to the egregious human & civil rights violations, police states, and mass isolation by a pandemic that has become more about politics and party lines; then it has about compassion, empathy and saving lives. Undeniably, we have devolved into chaos.
In the midst of this chaos, the Serial Killers (Xzibit, B-Real & Demrick) have reformed with a needed, timely, current and politically charged album, Summer Of Sam, which is sure to shake up the status quo. And who better than Xzibit, B-Real and Demrick to light the fuse.
With some of the most recognizable voices in music, the individual members of Serial Killers have contributed a handful of genre-defining albums over the last two decades, which have resulted in numerous platinum and gold plaques. Similarly, X To The Z and B-Real have transcended music and become multi-medium cultural icons with their contributions to both television and movies.
“We were sick before the virus hit and tigers can’t change their stripes” Xzibit exclaims on the California super-group’s new single and title track “S.O.S.,” which is now available at all DSP’s.
“We are all we got and it’s up to us to fix the problems” B-Real proclaims on “S.O.S.” And fed up and angry with the senselessness around us, Serial Killers use their forthcoming album Summer Of Sam to paint vivid manifestos of the pandemonium around us, exemplified by tracks such as “White Power,” “Streets Lockdown” and “War In The Streets.”
The spooky name is a play on the notorious Spike Lee film about the New York Son of Sam mass murderer. The October 16th release will feature Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, and DJ Quik, with production handled by Rick Rock, Dem Jointz, Focus…, Sick Drumz, and 21 The Producer.
