In the early to mid-90s, Death Row Records put together a string of releases enviable to this day by most record labels. From The Chronic to All Eyez on Me, seemingly everything released by the company was a success.

One such album was Tha Dogg Pound’s 1995 debut LP, Dogg Food. It would go on to sell more than 2 million copies, taking Daz and Kurupt from the background to standing side-by-side with close affiliate, Snoop Dogg, and all other prominent artists on Tha Row.

By 1997, however, things had changed dramatically. Dr. Dre had left the label. Snoop was soon to follow. And, Tupac Shakur was killed in a still unsolved murder. At a crossroads, Kurupt also chose to make his exit, with Daz joining in the exodus by 1999. However, in 2002, Kurupt would return to the controversial label, causing a 2-year rift between Tha Pound.

Kurupt recently spoke with DJ Vlad about that period in time, making it explicitly clear that he believes Suge Knight caused the beef between him and Kurupt. He also recollects how the matter was ultimately resolved, allowing him and Kurupt to make music together for years to come.
