“Nuthin’ But An Elite Thang”: Former Chimaira Guitarist Mashes Up New Band with Dr. Dre and Snoop
If, like me, you’re a massive fan of guitarist Rob Arnold (ex-Chimaira, ex-Six Feet Under), you’re probably wondering what’s going on with the full-length debut from his current project, The Elite. The band’s first EP, WW3 (get it for just five bucks from Amazon!), came out way back in 2009, and I think we’ve been hearing about a longer release since at least 2011 or 2012.
Well, good news: while Rob tells us that scheduling conflicts have kept the vocals from being completed, the music is all done, which suggests that the album is on the horizon.
In fact, now we have a small taste of that music in the form of this mash-up, which combines Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog’s classic hip-hop anthem, “Nuthin’ But a G Thang,” with a new Elite song entitled “You’re Not Ready.” And it’s pretty good! It definitely makes me wanna hear more from The Elite… and revisit The Chronic. Probably while smoking some chronic. In fact, uh… I’ll be back in a minute.
Stay tuned for more updates on The Elite…
