Exclusive: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg Exec Producing New Dogg Pound Album


(AllHipHop News) Original Dogg Pound members Daz and Kurupt are back in the studio working on a new album that will be executive produced by both Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The pair are on the road with Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, who are touring in support of their upcoming movie “Mac and Devin Go To High School.”

In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Daz and Kurupt revealed that they are working on a new album titled Alumni, which will be overseen by both Dre and Snoop.

“It’s Daz and Kurupt getting that DPGC together. Big Snoop is overseeing it, Dre’s overseeing,” Kurupt told AllHipHop.com at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. “We just got off a road trip for beats with Dr. Dre, who is still working on Detox.”

While most of Tha Dogg Pound’s albums were independently released, Daz said Alumni will be a major release backed by both Dr. Dre and Snoop’s respective machines.

According to Daz, Alumni will feature a combination of production between himself and Dr. Dre.

“We put the beats together, submit it to him [Dr. Dre] to let him know what we are working with and he comes and adds his flavor to it. It’s natural.”

As of press time, a release date for Tha Dogg Pound’s upcoming album Alumni was not available.

    Put this on the list of Albums to never come out… Don’t mean to sound negative, but with all the projects Dre is involved in. Come on…

    • bassing

      for reals, “lets start new albums before we finish any” doesnt work out so well

    • mademan3000

      All I hear is with everything Dre’s involved in…maybe I’m missing something but exactly what the hell is he involved in…LMAO!!!

      • he is involved in a lot coming of the west coast these days..maybe not directly ON the song…shit he was even in on mary j’s new album…

  • David L Alires

    To hell with Dre he could just put his name on it as far as im concerned. A major album by Daz and Kurupt sounds good to me.

  • Yeah, real doubtful about this album , with Dre involved in so many other projects….well , still working on Detox.
    The Chronic was Dre’s last album?
    That was 10yrs ago?

    • therealest1

      For your correct information, it was Chronic 2001 that was released in late 1999.

  • R_REAL_TALK

    BECAUSE BY THE TIME THAT NN?IGGA GET AROUND TO CONVINCING HIS MIND THAT THE MIX IS RIGHT ON THE TRACK 20 YEARS GONNA GO BY THINK IAM LYING LOOK AT DETOX?????

    P.S DONT GET MAD YALL NO IAM RIGHT

    its coming up 13 years since the chronic 2001… im sick of all this bull shit hype behind other albums, he was meant to do the ice cube joint, that never went down.. DRE!! if you read these comments slap your face and give your self a shake.. we want your music

    but yea DPG always bring that music, cant wait for this, RANT OVER . 1 haha

    • MrTroyMercy

      Pretty much cosign this as well . Dre needs to focus on the myth of Detox and gone head and pay Suge and Tameka Wwright that bread so he can be music industry debt free. Instead of jerking artist with overpriced beats other people basically do and jurking feeble minded citizenns with over priced citizen…jerk the people who jerked you Dre but Dre soft .West Coast gonna love that nikka reguardless of him and yella dressing up like suspect chandlers with sparkling outfits .

      Homie switch up speeds to much. He knows he HAS to give any SMART producer credit because they got they publishing game right . Some tracks are even Co Produced by Dre now.

      Quik a better producer to me . Jellyroll better . Battle cat better . Scott Storth(fucc a spell check) , and all these under dre co pay producerswas better ..Hell, Mr Porter did tracks for Dre tat just took credit for …smh

  • i hope dre don’t try to jerk daz on his production money this time around

  • King Cold

    Lookin forward to dis. Daz and kurupt always put it down for the West

    • MrTroyMercy

      you my nigga sapp , but i have to contest this notion .. I’m going to give it a chance but I won’t buy it until I hear something I like off it …cause these cats are washed up..

  • Trauma562

    Legit!

  • MrTroyMercy

    To be honest ain’t nobody checking for a DoggPound album. Krupt done fell all the ay off and Daz done faded into obscurity beatwise and lyricis . Nobody. Care if Dre or Snoop is executive producing the music , Dre and Snoop are wwashed up nowww. That Gangsta Party mess is done and G funk era been over hen nikkas got bread and stop rapping ..

    Call me a hater , hy I don’t give a fuccc …but this album will be uneventful . Dre tracks have been medoicre as of late now that all his ghost producers bounce . Liten to come and go on “CURTIS”. Dre is a helleva mixer and all but basically he is a overpriced , SOMEWHAT overated producer cause once his co producer bounced and blew up , Dre started making medoicre music .

    Which comes to way way back n day the greviances Pac has with had with him . * niggas doing the beats and he taking credit for it *..that’s not working anymor cause prooducers are blowwing up and getting the publishing and paperwork game right and not being content with ghost producing for a name . Just saying .

    Not saying its going to be terrible but it’s not not gonna be doggfood material, trust that .. Krupt no longer have them use to be top 5 lyrics in his . Seems like Daz be making the same beat over and over with differerent sounds .

    No natedogg , no rage , hopefully no warren g ( rapping ) or superfly ….this album might just equal a no no no matter who executive produces it …the music has to be quality …I hope they got their hunger but I won’t buy this til I hear it first …

    • Actually Daz kills the west coast indie game makes a lot of beats and money.Kurupt been had bars and stays working.DPG has managed to stay well afloat.They may not be platinum recently but,they have been out like 20 yrs damn near.Kurupt is that dude and Daz got beats

      • HELL YEAH

      • It’s not about who got money, hell Gucci Mane & Soulja Boy got money. DPG have fell off, I got all of the underground albums. To still be in the game 20 years later is a feat but their Dogg Food days are long gone

      • They gonna bang that shit on the west coast.Maybe not nationwide, but they still got good music.They not gonna be what they were 20 yrs ago mainstream but they got a solid core fanbase who will buy anything they drop

  • regal84

    Where all this hate comin from? All four names included in this article are legends… some of y’all niggas on here are hypocrites… on one hand y’all say how much y’all miss that old school feel and that classic hip hop sound cuzz of the new era of skinny jean swaggots running the airways… well guess what? It doesn’t get more classic than dogg pound, snoop, daz dilly and the kingpin kurupt… as a youngster growing up in the west, i loved the death row era running shit…i know some of y’all east coast niggas on here are gone continue to talk salty cuzz of that ” New York, New York” shit… but they were defending a coast against an industry that didn’t want the west to have anything to do with hip hop… kinda like how niggas treat the south now… who can forget snoop on stage in new York wit about 10 -15 homies goin in on them niggas in they own backyard? Classic…when snoop acceptedthat big wig position at priority or whatever record company that was, he said his primary goal was to restore that nostalgia on the west that we desperately miss… I’m in my mid twenties, and i can’t get down with that odd future or tyga bullshit ( although Tyler is growing on me and i fux wit kendrick lamar heavy)… ain’t no fun will get it cracking at any party… if snoop is so washed up, how did he make the forbes list last year? Could be wrong, but i believe he was number 6, if im not mistaken… not bad for washed up… and just cuzz they haven’t been getting raped by a record label for the last 10 years don’t mean they haven’t been working… they put out numerous bangers on the underground… so if you ain’t checking for em, doesn’t mean nobody else will… so go somewhere else… I’m sure gucci and soulja boy could use your support….

  • whc83

    Last interview i seen with Dre was when he said that kendrick lamar and slim the mobster would be the last two artist he work with for a while, so i would have to hear this new come out of Dre mouth before i believe it.

  • The funny part is..yall act like Dre doesnt do anything just becuz Detox aint out…Since the last Chronic album, think about how much he’s done with Snoop, Em, 50, Game, Mary J Blige and others…maybe its becuz he does so much with others that he doesnt work on his own stuff..but dont act like the man aint working…there’s a reason he’s still on the Forbes list every yr WITHOUT dropping an album. Trust and believe this album will be out and is gonna be HOT

  • Taba Givagops

    This should be nice, since both Dre and Snoop are over seing the project.  I hope it goes beyond the typical stuff that I’ve been hearing from some of these cookie cutter rappers. I have much respect for Big Snoop.
