Block Life is a gangsta rap group from Kansas City, MO made up of Dandrae "Cku Koo Bird" Jones & Dennis "Wescrook" Westbrook, who are also known as solo artists.
The duo released 2 albums during the late 2000's, entitled "Bleed The Block" (2006) & "Gorillaz & Birds" (2009). These abums featured several well known KCMO underground figures (Rich The Factor, Boy Big, Don Juan, Black Walt, BG Bulletwound, Zeno Vellie,...) and their sophormore release even had a wider appeal with guest appearances of E-40, Bun B, Glasses Malone or Shawty Lo among others. Solid material.
Block Life then entered into a forced hiatus following the incarceration of both Wescrook and Cku Koo Bird over drug charges. They ended up with long term prison sentences (D. Jones was sentenced to 30 years without parole and D. Westbrook to 20 years without parole). KCMO rappers Zeno Vellie and Black Walt were also convicted in the case.
Block Life resurfaced in 2021 when Wescrook was released from prison. With Cku Koo Bird still behind bars, two digital albums were dropped with guests such as C-Bo, Marvaless, Mistah F.A.B., Glasses Malone, Rich The Factor, or Boy Big among others.
