Legendary Emcee, Kurupt, has confirmed that Soopafly and Snoop Dogg will be included in the upcoming Thug Pound collaborative. According to the rapper, all five members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony along with the entire Dogg Pound will be a part of this huge collabo.
During an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, Kurupt confirmed that the collaboration will be taking place.
“Right now we’re fixing to be working on a Thug Pound album with all of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and all of Dogg Pound,” Kurupt expressed. “…Snoop [Dogg], Daz [Dillinger], myself, Soopafly, Krayzie [Bone], Wish [Bone], Bizzy [Bone], [Flesh-N-Bone], Layzie [Bone], the whole ball of wax. These are new works.”
It was nearly 20 years ago that the two groups were at odds with one another, a part of the larger scaled beef between Ruthless Records and Death Row Records.
The feud was fueled with lyrics like, “Follow me / Roll, stroll down East ’99 / Gotta find these Row hoes.” Layzie Bone followed one song later on “Shotz To The Double Glock” with “Niggas don’t take a wrong turn or you’ll enter the hood / Wig splitters will cover your dome / In a cut where the thugs and hustlas roam / Cleveland Browns / Dogg Pound hoes it’s on.”
Kurupt says that both of the legendary groups have put the past behind them and that he and Layzie Bone have even become brothers.
“I found that a lot of times through disagreements you meet some of your best friends and family,” he said. “Me and Lazyie is like brothers. During the Death Row [Records] era, we were ready to tear each other apart. Now that’s one of my best friends. Layzie Bone is one of my best friends.”
