STREETSEEKERS: Can you elaborate on why you decided to call the tape Killumanati?

THE OUTLAWZ: Well as everyone knows it significant to us but, killuminati is a play on Illuminati which stands for fear and it holds this hold stigma and its a scary thought for alot of people hence the halloween release date for the mixtape.

We dropped it around March/April of this year.

STREETSEEKERS: How would you describe the single 100 mph?

THE OUTLAWZ: Well it’s definitley part of our new sound our new mature sound you know. It a song for the clubs and it a song for when the weather nice and you wanna drive around with the speakers up and the top down.

STREETSEEKERS: You say you have a new and more mature sound can you tell us more about that?

THE OUTLAWZ: Well no intelligent person will stay the same and we are no exception, you gotta change up and try new things, i mean there is always gunna be things you can talk about like money, crime politics and whatever but don’t be expecting to hear old drama because that’s dead and gone.
