Late last year, news broke that La Coka Nostra was preparing their sophomore release Masters of Dark Arts for a 2012 release. Now, the super-group has announced an official date for their project's release.

According to a recent press release, Masters of Dark Arts will drop on June 26 via Fat Beats with Ill Bill and DJ Lethal handling production. Ill Bill spoke on the new album's sound and how it differs from their 2009 debut A Brand You Can Trust.

"The new album is a little different from A Brand You Can Trust. I think the production is less polished this time, more raw," he explained. "It has an unfriendly vibe to it. We went with darker, grimier beats on this one and that influenced the direction of the lyrics and songs overall."

The album's release also comes with the unfortunate news that member Everlast has departed from the group. In a statement, Everlast explained that he unable to fully commit his time to La Coka Nostra because his daughter's struggle with Cystic Fibrosis.

"Due to my commitments with my own label and record and the fact that my daughter has been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis it has become very difficult to be involved in any other projects," he explained. "Therefore it is my conclusion after long deliberation and discussion with the guys in the group that waiting until I personally am ready and able to fully dedicate myself to the group isn't fair to the group so I unfortunately will not be involved in LCN until a time when I can dedicate myself properly to it."

DX will keep you updated as more information on the project comes to light.

Pretty lame that Everlast isn't in the group anymore

I'm not even the biggest everlast fan but that's disappointing. Now it's just Bill and slaine. That's cool tho. cause most likely Bill is gonna take full control of this album and I think it's gonna be really good.

Damn, Everlast departing sucks.

I totally understand the reasoning though.

Family comes first.

Slaine & Bill can more than carry an album, but if they got a replacement either Sick Jacken or B-Real would be good fits.

Or even Q-Unique.

Hopefully they got a couple of hooks and/or verses from Whitey before he decided to move on.

yeah i'm hoping that they got some stuff from him too...something on facebook said Bill and Lethal would be handling production and that they'd be doing stuff with the extended family so it's hard to say who all will be on there...Bill said in an interview that Thirstin Howl III is confirmed as a guest..I'm sure B-Real, Jacken and Paz are going to be on there too

Madchild in La Coka? That's a great idea!!! Maybe they can get Justin Bieber on the feature, and have Christina Augilera produce it. Shit would be phat yo!




Can't wait to hear that Thirstin Howl Track.

are you guys kidding me? im so excited that everlast is gone. he made their last album mediocre - along with some of the beats. i had to fast forward through each one of his verses and hopefully ill be able to listen to this one the entire way through without skipping. the dude just forgot how to flow, i dont know whats wrong with his brain these days. maybe all that islam. whatever it is, hes unlistenable now. itl be refreshing hearing slaine and bill with his new-old flow going bonkers back and forht. 'nique should replace 'last

eh, i disagree with your opinion sir...Everlast was the reason alot of people (probably not from this forum lol) got into and gave LCN a chance...I was already a fan of iLL BiLL, Necro, Non-Phixion etc so I would've been psyched either way but i think Everlast had some pretty ill shit on the last album...didn't care for his parts on the Stain or Cousin of Death but when he opens up the album on Bloody Sunday...then Get You By and Choose Your Side, Nuclear Medicinemen..I think he pulled his weight, but not taking away from Slaine or Bill, they did their thing and then some...BUT i'm definitely not as excited since Ev isn't on it..still going to get it on the release date however

dont dumb down your taste in music. everlast on the first LCN was absolute trash, and you know it. you can try to convince yourself otherwise, and it might work, but its not real
