Paris’ Guerrilla Funk Recordings has reached
a deal with rapper MC Ren and will produce, manufacture and distribute a new
album by the veteran in early 2005.
The album is the first full-length recording
for the former N.W.A. member since 1998, when he released Ruthless For Life.
Ren is known for his bold lyrics on N.W.A.’s
now legendary debut, Straight Outta Compton and for penning several tracks
on Eazy E’s debut, Eazy Duz It.
After the group released 1991’s Niggaz4Life,
the group disbanded and Ren launched his solo career with the EP Kizz My
Black Azz in 1992.
Ren shed his Gangsta image when converted to
the Nation of Islam and released Shock of the Hour in 1993, followed
by The Villian In Black in 1996 and rounded out by Ruthless For Life.
The album has yet-to-be titled.
