WC is one of Los Angeles’ most dominant street artists. He emerged onto the hip-hop scene with lyrics depicting the harsh realities of street-life, quickly solidifying him as a staple in the West rap scene. Soon thereafter, WC joined forces with Ice Cube to become a member of one of the most controversial groups in hip hop of all time, The West Side Connection. In the mist of dropping solo projects he later went on tour with Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Snoop to show the world how to Crip walk and throw up the “W” on a world-wide circuit.
Dub proclaims, “Revenge of the Barracuda is just another way of saying ‘back to the hardcore’” and on March 8th, 2011 the world will hear his wrath.
