When it comes to the West Coast, few artists hold a legendary status and can refer themselves to as a don. Cube. Dre. Snoop. E-40. $hort. But now, one other west coast OG is looking to add his name to that list as Yukmouth prepares to release his 5th studio album “The West Coast Don”.

Pulling out all stops, Yuk enlists some of the industry’s current heavy weights. Recruiting Auto-Tune crooner T-Pain for “44” and Ray J for the lead single “I’m A Gangsta”, Yuk is looking to make it official. Rounding out the album are appearances from Crooked I, C-Bo, Glasses Malone, Lil Flip, Dru Down, Keak Da Sneak, Turf Talk and more.

Having provided the instantly recognizable anthem “I Got 5 On It” as a part of the 90’s group The Luniz, Yuk is also a member of the groups Thug Lordz, (C-Bo), and the Regime (Tech N9ne and Tha Realest).

Yukmouth, born in East Oakland, California originally went on to sign a solo record deal at Rap-A-Lot Records, releasing three albums, each selling at least 200,000 copies with little airplay.

Since leaving Rap-A-Lot, Yuk founded his own label, Smoke-A-Lot Records, and has released both the DVDs, and the soundtracks for his series titled “United Ghettos of America.”

“The West Coast Don” is in stores July 14th.
