With L’Orange & Stik Figa’s new album The City Under The City less than two weeks away, today we are pleased to bring you the first visuals for the project. Set in the steel remains of a burnt out building, Stik Figa weaves his way in and out between worlds of smokey grey and rich color. The setting itself a metaphor, the rich foliage growing from the concrete walls, blends into the background while evoking a sense of life growing from under the city.
The City Under The City comes out 10.15.13

When B-Real, the front-man of the legendary hip hup Cypress Hill conceptualized his next group effort, he envisioned putting together a team of emcees with the sole purpose of murdering every track and any competition. The first member he reached out to was fellow West Coast legend Xzibit, known for his brash vocals and hard hitting lyrics. At the time the two artists were sharing a studio in Los Angeles and were both working with an up and coming emcee by the name of Demrick (formerly known as Young De). While working in the studio the three began collaborating on songs and as Xzibit stated in a recent interview “It was organic and took a natural progression.”

When interviewed in March of 2010 Demrick hinted to the fact that with everyone’s schedules it would be some time before hearing a completed Serial Killers project. The three remained close, continued to work and tour, both independently and together. Recently B-Real and Xzibit sat down to speak about the project and said that they were both excited that it’s finally complete. With a release date set for Halloween, October 31st, the two went on to say that they were confident with the body of work and that it would surprise new and old fans alike.

For the first visual, B-Real, Xzibit & Demrick collaborated with Director Matt Alonzo to shoot “First 48”.
