Advance digital release of the maxi 12-inch featuring MC Eiht and Steve Arrington of Slave.  Vinyl expected in September.

We've got a 12-inch maxi single & video for Dam-Funk's “Hood Pass Intact” coming up September 2010. DF will be joined on the vocal mix of the standout track from his Toeachizown 5-LP set by West Coast legend MC Eiht, marking their first collaboration in nearly a decade. Most people remember MC Eiht as the lead member of the group Comptons Most Wanted, or for his infamous MC battle with DJ Quik, or for his unforgettable role in the film ‘Menace 2 Society’ … but only the left coasters know and respect him as the originator of the phrase “Gyeah”, which has been bitten and jacked by every MC and rapper on the planet, including Jay Z.

Hood Pass Intact 12" also features the vocals of Steve Arrington on the track “4 My Homies”. Arrington is best known as the lead singer of the group SLAVE during the Dayton funk outfit’s most popular period, lending his voice to classics such as “Watching You” and “Just a Touch of Love.” “4 My Homies” is the initial project from the team of Arrington and DaM-FunK, and a precursor to their forthcoming full-length on Stones Throw.

Rounding out the four-track Hood Pass Intact are contributions from Devonwho on the instrumental re-edit of Toeachizown’s “Come On Outside” and JT Donaldson and TK co-producing the non-album single “How It Be Between U & Me?”

All music produced, written, and performed by Dam-Funk.
