Am I the only one that feels like Dogg Pound’s “Dillinger & Young Gotti” was an unsung classic?

    I remember getting picked up in my big cousin’s car to go visit his college campus and we stopped by the local music store to get some new music. He grabbed the new Dogg Pound album, and immediately put it in when we got in the car.

    It was a 2 hour ride and he played it non stop. From the moment “Dipp with me” started playing I was hooked.

    Daz has always been one of my favorite producers. The way The production and lyrics meshed made me imagine I was spending a day in Los Angeles or that they just had one long ass party in the studio and didn’t stop recording until everybody was passed out. The features fit in perfectly. The production fit the theme of every song and helped every song transition to the next. It was one of my last memories of Kurupt truly spitting, before he started sounding like he was just randomly grabbing words, that rhymed, out of a thesaurus.

    As much as I love Dogg Food, D & YG became my favorite. I’ve always felt like this one went under the radar outside of hardcore Daz & Kurupt fans.

    Daz is at his best when he has good co-producers around him and Mike Dean definitely helped make that album bounce.

    My second favourite Dogg Pound album, pretty much a seamless listen and Kurupt was still spitting.

    Same. I like the album a lot, but it's nowhere close to Dogg Food for me.

    I remember hearing Dipp Wit Me on the radio one night at work and was like ":gladbron: Dogg Pound back? :blessed: " and went to buy the album as soon as I got paid.

    shyt Happenz still gets played at least once every other week or so :yes:

    I think this came out around the same time as that Death Row 2002 album, but I barely remember that one aside from the Change The Game Remix.

    Few of the songs were made during the late stages of Death Row and redid/remade for this album

    "D.P.G." was basically NY '87 as Kurupt's verse was 99% the same, he just took out the names

    was bumping the album yesterday, this track gets overlooked but the beat and Kurupt:wow:

    “We never gave a fukk, so what the fukk we gone start?
    Snatching arms off, bust and puncture your heart”
