Tha Dogg Pound – Dogg Food (1995)

This is a long overdue listen for me. Dogg Pound, is perhaps, quite famously, a duo comprising of Kurupt and Daz Dillinger, who you may know from Dr. Dre’s albums or Snoop Dogg’s legendary Doggystyle album. These are the two guys that fill out a good chunk of guest spots on some high profile releases in the hip hop world during the 90s and it was high time (lol) that I checked out their debut album.

Of course, this is produced by Dr. Dre. Suge Knight is down as exec producer, but its clear to me that Dre mixed this thing, you can tell that trademark sound a mile off. What Dogg Food brings then is a solid hour of old school gangsta rap. Its a bit typical of the sound, yes – but these guys arguably are part of the original movement and are able to get away with that. Good shit. The prophets teach: “Smoke a joint to this!”. So it shall be written, so it shall be done.
