A TAV Curator's Pick.

On The Soul Assassins Chapter 1, producer DJ Muggs assembled a hard-hitting album that combined a murderer’s row of hip-hop icons with Muggs’ laid-back, West Coast beats. With verses from Cypress Hill, Dr. Dre, RZA, GZA, Goodie Mob, KRS-One, Mobb Deep, Wyclef Jean and more, The Soul Assassins Chapter 1 is a one of a kind hip-hop touchstone. It’s being reissued for its 20th anniversary as a 12” picture disc featuring the original album’s striking cover illustration and logo. – Press Release

The Muggs Presents The Soul Assassins (Chapter 1) album was originally released in 1997 and is produced by DJ Muggs.

The apocalyptic grooves on Muggs Presents The Soul Assassins (Chapter 1) steal the show, while the street beats and stark lyrics bring an eerie trip-hop feel to the whole album.

Highlights of this diverse LP are "Puppet Master" by Dr. Dre & B Real, "Third World" by RZA/GZA & Genius plus the hidden gem, only to be found on the European release, "Runnin' Wild" from the LA Art Soul Assassins crew. – Press Release
