Jurassic 5's Chali 2na and Roc C join forces as Ron Artiste

A new hip-hop double act is in the offing, and it features a couple of familiar faces.

Chali 2na is still best known as the baritone in keg party-friendly rap combo Jurassic 5, although he also dropped a solo record (Fish Outta Water) in 2009 and has collaborated with Roots Manuva and Rusko. Oxnard MC Roc C, meanwhile, has previously dropped on Stones Throw, and released last year’s Stoned Genius on his own Kash Roc Entertainment imprint. The latter is reportedly also working on an album with Big Pooh.

As HipHopDX report, the pair are set to bump mics as Ron Artiste. The two-man (sort-of-)supergroup will release a new album, provisionally titled R.I.D.S, on Kash Roc Entertainment later this Summer. The Alchemist, West Coast vet King Tee and Boston’s Edo G are all set to appear on the album. The duo take their name from LA Lakers oddball Ron Artest.

R.I.D.S is slated to arrive on August 14.
