Group signs to Jake Records for the release of their seventh and final album.

Jake Records is proud to announce the signing of west coast superstars Digital Underground to the label. The multi-platinum selling artists best known for smash hits like "The Humpty Dance," "Freaks Of The Industry," "Doowutchalike," and "Oregano Flow" will be releasing an all new full-length album very soon.

This release, unique in several ways, will mark the end of an era. Digital Underground has announced that this will be their last official studio album. The group plans to disband afterwards, to focus on solo projects. The new album also becomes the first in the group's catalog that features several live tracks featuring some of their well-known hits and all-time crowd favorites.

Jake Records CEO Scott Thomas says the label is both excited and honored to be working with such a legendary group. "I'm a lifelong Digital Underground fan first and foremost, so the idea of being involved in this last album is both very special, and thrilling," Thomas says. "Having shaped so many careers over the past 20 years, and always managing to have a good time while doing it, Digital Underground should be praised for always keeping it fun and lighthearted," he adds.

"It's gonna be a fun adventure working this album with Scott & everybody at Jake," said Digital Underground front man Shock-G of the label. "As fans as well as close friends, they know our strengths & highlights, even better than we do" he said.

The album's official street date has not been set, but is tentatively planned for late May or early June 2008. The album will be made available in stores, and via major online retailers.
