The good news for Knoc-Turn’Al is that he’s finally putting out a disc on July 30 after getting his project pushed back several times.
The bad news is that it’s not exactly what he originally had in mind. The West Coast rapper will be releasing an EP titled LA Confidential Presents Knoc-Turn’Al, and it doesn’t look like his debut LP, Knoc’s Landin’, will be touching down anytime soon. The full-length, which was supposed to drop this spring (see “Dre, Timbaland, Warren G Help Wake People Up To Knoc-Turn’Al”), has been put on the shelf and is under reconstruction, according to a spokesperson for the West Coast MC.
Elektra Records blames the change in plans on the record being bootlegged in Los Angeles. The longhaired line-flinger has headed back into the lab and is working on a new version of Knoc’s Landin’ with Dr. Dre, who produced many of the original’s cuts. No new release date has been set.
The EP includes his single “The Knoc,” which features Dre and Missy Elliott, “Muzik” and a remix of “Str8 Westcoast,” where Warren G, Shade Shiest, Nate Dogg and Xzibit co-star.
LA Confidential Presents Knoc-Turn’Al track list, according to Elektra:
“The Knoc” f/ Missy Elliott, Dr. Dre
“Str8 Westcoast (Remix)” f/ Warren G, Shade Shiest, Nate Dogg, Xzibit
“Let’s All Roll”
“Cash Sniffin’ Noses”
