Canibus, Ras Kass, Kurupt, Killah Priest Recording "HRSMN" Album, Slaughterhouse Collaboration
One of Hip Hop's "what if's" appears to be soon-coming, and working with a super-group that resembled them in later years.
One of Hip Hop's super-groups still without an album is The HRSMN (a/k/a The Four Horsemen). The group consisting of Canibus, Kurupt, Ras Kass and Killah Priest first appeared on a 1998 white label 12" single "Abide By," before two formally-released tracks on Priest's 2000 album, View From The Massada.
Although 2003's The Horsemen Project was endorsed by Killah Priest, the off-again, on-again quartet has yet to release an official album. With all four soloists presently independent of major label contracts, new video has surfaced, confirming a HRSMN project presently recording.
"We got Ras Kass, we got Killah Priest and we got Kurupt/Young Gotti," said Kurupt in a recent viral video with the two other members appearing in the background. "Canibus is, right now, out of town, doin' work, but we're over here doin' it big. We've got the all-star cast in here, bitch!" Earlier this year, The HRSMN appeared on Ras Kass' self-released, A.D.I.D.A.S. album, which is now nationally distributed by Fat Beats.
The three also played a song on the video reportedly called "House of Horses," featuring a more contemporary super-group, Slaughterhouse. "You gonna get that, the four slaughters!" said an enthusiastic Kurupt.
Kurupt was responsible for some of Slaughterhouse member Crooked I's first appearances on national albums, specifically 1999's Tha Streetz Iz A Mutha.
