Kurupt’s In A Foul Mood. He, J. Wells & Roscoe Make A Groove About It (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Sometimes MCs benefit from having a chip on their shoulder. Nearly 15 years ago, Kurupt took his frustrations with people trying to holler at his girl (then Foxy Brown), feeling neglected as a West Coast artist, and not feelin’ the 2Pac imitations, and made “Callin’ Out Names.” While the song got attention for its specific verbal jabs (DMX, Ja Rule, young 50 Cent), part of what made it work so well was that it was an irritated rapper turning angst into audio dope.

“Shuv It,” courtesy of J. Wells’ Inebriated album (August, 2015), is a note from this book. Kurupt wants all the materialism, extra-ness, and raspy talk out of his voice. Perturbed, Tha Dogg Pound co-founder gets lyrical alongside Wells (son of Supremes legend, Mary Wells) and blood-brother Scoe (f/k/a Roscoe). With a driving bassline, Kurupt’s bad day translates into a good track:
