Strong Arm Steady Aims To Strong Arm Hip-Hop

Instead of dropping a CD like most new groups,

Strong Arm Steady opted to release a DVD featuring group members

Xzibit, Krondon, Mitchy Slick, Phil Da Agony and Will Blast.

"We are in the age of multi-media so introducing

the [Strong Arm Stready] crew along with all the mixtapes along with guest appearances

is just a way to give more insight on the personalities to these guys,"

Xzibit told

The DVD comes with unreleased tracks and exclusive

audio and video from Strong Arm Steady and follows the group's day-to-day life.

The DVD features guest appearances by Kanye West,

Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Ice-T and others.

"We are taking a real grass roots effect

to the product in everything that we are putting out," Xzibit continued.

"Any avenues that are available to me, I make it available to them.

Strong Arm Steady was founded by group member

Will Blast in 1997 and group members have been very active on the West Coast

mixtape scene.

In addition to the group members, extended family

includes Chase Infinite, Self Scientific, Khalil, Planet Asia, Rass Kass, Bad

Azz and others.
