Platinum producer Khao is gearing up for the release of his new album Bad Brains Forever and today gives fans a preview of his standout track “Unified.”
The song features some of the West Coast’s best like the late great Nipsey Hussle, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Mozzy, G- Perico, Problem, E-40, and Ice-T. The song was recorded just weeks before Nipsey Hussle’s passing.
“Nipsey Hussle and I shared a mutual passion for uplifting inner-city communities,” Khao said in a press release. “That’s why it’s important that his life and legacy live on. We both wanted something truly epic for the West Coast. Not only were we restoring this magical sound – but creating peace in the West Coast community by bringing the ‘Bloods’ and ‘Crips’ together and unifying people through music.”
