Astoria, New York (PressExposure) April 06, 2011 -- 20 years after releasing his debut Platinum selling album with group Above The Law entitled "Livin' Like Hustlers," the "Dr. Dre understudy" and G-Funk originator Big Hutch a.k.a. Cold 187um sets out to retain his Platinum status with his highly anticipated album release entitled "Only God Can Judge Me" releasing on April 26, 2011 through Big Hutch's own West World Records label and distributed by Big Shot Music Group/Empire Distribution.
Big Hutch made history working alongside the late Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, NWA, D.O.C., J.J. Fad and is known for discovering rap lyricist Crooked I and the group 213, which members were made up of Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and the late Nate Dogg. Also, for about two years, Big Hutch was made V.P. of the infamous Death Row Records by then music mogul Suge Knight, replacing label mate Daz Dilligner, and was the music supervisor for the late 2 Pac's "Till The End of Time" album and the Outlaws's E.D.I. Hutch produced, remixed, mixed and appeared on the double-disc set, which has sold more than 1.6 million copies, according to SoundScan, all the while still pushing his group Above The Law that consisted of childhood friends KMG and DJ K-Oss from Pomona California. After serving time in prison for drug related offenses in 2004, Big Hutch released yet another solo album entitled "Fresh Out The Pen" once again staying true and tending to his long time fans. Now, with a new outlook on the music business of today and concentrating solely on West World Records, Big Hutch has teamed up with music marketing strategist Michael "Big Shot" Oronde Wright, whom also is the C.E.O. of the Big Shot Music Group record label, and with both labels working in conjunction, with the history of the one and the music marketing expertise of the other, makes for the ultimate machine to continue the legacy of Eazy-E's Ruthless Records and generate the success in the manner of the original Death Row Records. The "Only God Can Judge Me" album is just the album to do such a thing. The album features upcoming West World Records artists as well as newly reformed group and label mate LeVert 2 on the titled track "Let's Get Neked" featuring original LeVert legend Marc Gordon and LeVert 2 newcomer Blaq Rose. Big Hutch will be leading the album off with his hit single entitled "Lord Have Mercy" along with a video that was direct by Big Hutch himself.
