It was October 2008 when we last heard from Butch Cassidy on the solo tip. In that month he featured in our West Coast Grind radio show to discuss his upcoming and long awaited LP “Self Sufficient” which was due in February 2009.
In the same month we also provided what was dubbed the first single for download. In 2 Deep (Givin It Up) featured Glasses Malone & Roc C and was produced by The Joint Chiefs, the production group consisting of Dae One, Ervin “EP” Pope, Damizza, Los, & “Jedi” Jared Moore.
Today we have an update from the legendary gangsta soul singer Butch Cassidy who is now finally free of restrictions that, until now, have prevented him from releaseing his debut solo album.
The new title is the aptly named “First & Last” and will be preceeded by an announcement later this week that will explain his prolonged absence from the game and come as a major shock to the West Coast. “To all my fans, I know youﾒve waited a long time for a solo project. This Friday, Iﾒll announce everything thatﾒs been going on and the legal troubles that have barred me from releasing an album until now.”
The announcement will be available on Dubcnn alongside the albums first single which is said to be a “remake” produced by Qura who has worked alongside Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce fame – so expect the unexpected.
