(AllHipHop News) It looks like Snoop Dogg’s successful collaboration "Get Down" with Mobb Deep from their 2014 album The Infamous Mobb Deep, has led to a much deeper relationship.
Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound and Mobb Deep were foes at one time, and participants in the infamous “East/West Coast” beef which started in 1991 and lasted until 1997.
Tha Dogg Pound released their "New York, New York" song with Snoop in 1995, while Capone-N-Noreaga, Mobb Deep and Tragedy Khadafi wasted no time representing New York with their response, “L.A., L.A.” in early 1996.
Things cooled down after the murders of Tupac Shakur in 1996 and The Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, in addition to after a series of peace summits starting in 1996.
Over the weekend, Dogg Pound member Daz Dillinger posted a logo implying that new music was on the way from the two groups under the name “Dogg Mobb.”
A number of rappers liked the post, including Mobb Deep member Prodigy.
The group could be interesting, thanks to the legendary production track records of Daz Dillinger and Havoc, as well as the possible lyrical pairing of Havoc and Kurupt.
Prior to 2014’s release of “Get Down,” Snoop had recorded an unreleased song Havoc produced titled “Thou Shall Not Kill” featuring Tray Dee from the 2007 The Infamous Archives album of unreleased Mobb Deep songs - with Prince on the keyboards.
