A true O.G., Spice 1 is West Coast royalty. Over the course of his prodigious thirty-year career, Spice is responsible for a handful of classic albums; three of which have attained Gold plaques.
After a lengthy layoff, Spice 1 returns with a new album, Platinum O.G., which will be released on 7-26-19. After premiering the first single, “Since 85,” featuring Devin The Dude & Kurupt with Ambrosiaforheads, Spice is back with a new single, “Driveway,” which features fellow West Coast stalwarts Rappin 4-Tay and Nanci Fletcher was premiered today by HipHopDx.
California offers numerous distractions. Warm weather, scenic ocean views and a breeze that feels sun-kissed. These types of diversions make it much easier to relax, let your guard down--- and in a flash become exposed. As Spice and 4-Tay display, getting caught slipping is not an option; as their main ambition each day is to make it back to the “Driveway” safely.
“Driveway” features one of 4-Tay’s (of “Playaz Club” fame) first verses in years and if Nanci Fletcher’s voice sounds familiar, it should, as she has been dubbed the “the voice of west coast hip-hop“due to the fact that she has been featured on a handful of classic projects, including Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle (“Doggy Dogg World” & “Ain’t No Fun” among others), Dr. Dre’s “Keep Their Heads Ringing,” Dre & Cube’s “Natural Born Killaz,” and extensive work with Tupac, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Da Lench Mob & Big Daddy Kane (just for starters).
Platinum O.G. will be released on Elder Entertainment and features guest appearances from Too Short, Pimp C, Devin The Dude, Kurupt, Rappin 4-Tay, The Outlawz, MC Eiht, B-Legit, Big Mike, Hussein Fatal, Yukmouth, Big Syke, Money B, Lil Eazy E and more. The entire album is produced by Elder and Ace 1, a production duo from San Antonio, TX.
