RBX Drops ‘Hibernation Shivers’ Album Featuring MC Eiht, Krayzie Bone, Spice 1, Tha Dogg Pound + More

Long Beach, California legend, pioneer, and Grammy Award winner RBX, who rose to fame during his time with Death Row Records, is making a triumphant return with the release of his comeback album, ” Hibernation Shivers, dropping today, March 15th. Accompanying the album is the official music video for its lead single, “Hibernation,” featuring the West Coast lyricist Ras Kass. Produced by the talented Los Angeles duo Sccit & Siavash The Grouch, the album is first being released as a CD exclusive and Bandcamp digital download through Labcabin Records, with plans for a vinyl and streaming release to follow.

After a notable 17-year hiatus, RBX, also known as The Narrator and a co-founder of DPG, is back on the scene, bringing his iconic energy and lyrical prowess to the forefront. Drawing on his extensive experience collaborating on hip-hop classics like Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic, Snoop Dogg‘s Doggystyle, and Eminem‘s Marshall Mathers LP, RBX has assembled a stellar lineup of golden era emcees for his long-awaited return. Joining him on this musical journey are MC Eiht, Krayzie Bone, Spice 1, Fatlip, and a host of other legendary artists who contribute to the album’s rich and dynamic sound.

In response to his collaboration on the track “Hibernation,” Ras Kass expressed his admiration for RBX’s enduring legacy, likening his return to a powerful grizzly awakening from slumber. The album cover, featuring a larger-than-life RBX causing chaos in Times Square, pays homage to a classic era of hip-hop while infusing a fresh and innovative perspective. RBX’s vision for the album art, inspired by a concept he initially shared with Snoop Dogg in ’94, reflects his commitment to authenticity and artistic evolution.

One standout track on the album, “The Shivers,” featuring KXNG Crooked and Sccit, delivers a powerful message while addressing recent critiques from New York DJ Clark Kent regarding RBX’s impact on Dr. Dre’s iconic album The Chronic. Sccit emphasized the importance of standing up for West Coast legends in the face of unwarranted criticism, highlighting Labcabin’s dedication to honoring the contributions of hip-hop pioneers.

Produced in its entirety by Sccit & Siavash The Grouch, with contributions from esteemed West Coast producers such as Chris “The Glove” Taylor and Cold 187um, Hibernation Shivers showcases a blend of innovative production and timeless artistry. Siavash’s analogy of a bear awakening from hibernation, shivering in anticipation of a feast, encapsulates the album’s essence and the collaborative spirit that defines this musical journey.
