Mount Westmore is the newest hip-hop supergroup made up of four all-time, legendary rappers: Ice Cube, E-40, Too $hort, and Snoop Dogg. Founded in late 2020, it aims to take rap back to the good old days of the 1990s. These four were pioneers and innovators of hip-hop on the West Coast during that time and they all brought something different to the genre. E-40 had his incredible flow, Cube his hard-hitting lyrics, $hort his attitude, and Snoop his swagger. The group released their debut album, Snoop, Cube, 40, $hort, on December 9th, 2022. The song “Free Game” is from that album and was released on November 24th, 2022 with a music video accompanying it.
Ice Cube goes for broke in black chucks.
The song features all four members of Mount Westmore offering their knowledge accrued over the last 30 years as “free game”. The beat fits well with their respective styles, but like most of the songs that Mount Westmore have released so far, there really isn’t any interplay between the four legends. This is disappointing as they each do their verses on their own, chant the chorus together, then let the next person go. It leaves you wanting a bit more, especially when they’ve gone to such lengths to bring these great icons of rap together.
The gang tries to get the cops off their trail.
The music video follows the group on a heist. It opens with a shot of Los Angeles, setting the scene. E-40 is perched on a rooftop, scouting with some high-tech binoculars. He shows us the armed guards surrounding a van that is being loaded with their target: a few pallets of cash. The first chapter is titled “The Heist”, and the gang assembles. Cube showed up in his classic black chucks, ready to get the bread. E-40 raps his verse from both the roof and in front of the van with the other Mount Westmore members. In between these scenes of 40 rapping, Snoop, $hort, and Cube steal the van and all the cash. Part two is titled “The Chase”, and focuses on Snoop’s verse. He raps from on top of the cash in the back of the van, and from the previously mentioned spot with everyone else in front of the van. Too $hort then comes in and does his verse through a megaphone from the passenger’s seat as the cops close in. Finally, there is part three which is called “The Game”, which takes place as the van pulls up to a crowd of people. It’s Ice Cube’s turn to rap and he does so from the open back of the van as the group throws money to the gathering crowd. The whole video has a Robin Hood vibe of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, which fits with the song’s message about spreading the group’s wealth of knowledge.
When in doubt, throw money at the cops.
