Since 1992, Daz and Kurupt have been regaling fans with their charismatic gangster verbals. Despite co-starring on two of the most hugely successful albums in the history of rap music, and dropping their own near-classic with Dogg Food in 1995, Death Row jerked them financially, leading both to jump ship for other labels in the years that followed. 2001's Dillinger & Young Gotti is arguably the best project they've released in the post-Suge Knight era. Don't be fooled by the janky looking cover art, if you're a DPG fan from day one, this is just what the doctor ordered. The tracks are classic G-style, loaded with deep bass, freaky synth squiggles, and seriously knocking drums. Lyrically they stick to the script, expounding on the usual topics of thugging it up ("We Livin Gangsta Like"), getting as high as the stratosphere ("We About To Get Fucced Up"), and of course putting ladies in their place ("You're Just A B*tch"). There are also a few surprisingly positive tunes in the mix, but for the most part, it's all ignorant and all good.
The last real classic DPG Record
I have to admit, I'm a little slow on some of the new Daz and Kurupt stuff, but this album (rare, hard to find) is EXCELLENT. Daz and Kurupt seem to just continue where Kurupt's "Streetz is a Mutha" left off. Daz and Mike Dean keep it g-funky and synth heavy. But most importantly, the chemistry is like it was back in 95' (this is what differentiates it from the forced feel of Cali iz Active). The duo shine on almost every track. And the guests are solid. The best cuts are #3, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14. My very favorite being #10.
DPG to the fullest
Basically this is DPG's last classic album, like reviewer Jumane had said. Every song on here is solid, just like their debut 1995 release 'Dogg Food'. As this was still an experimental era for daz & kurupt, as they still had that fire in them (not to say they dont now), as they were just entering their 30's. They still had hood tales to tell, knowledge to spit, fire in their hearts to let out the party side and the dark gangbanging side. This was the pre-mix tape era (as mixtapes were being made), but not at an hourly rate they seem to be being thrown at us now (not literally). Although this release came from mainstream artists, i consider this an underground release as it didn't gain noteriety as an album due to its material because of its subject matter and the fact that it was an independent and not a major label. Whats rare about this is.. it didn't spawn 1 radio single, have a video or intend to. Its one of those albums that got slept on, but shouldn't, but did. Its not lyrically packed to knock you to the ground, but it goes hard for what it is. This cd is simply new skool oG. Its not old school, but its not new either. Its defined in my eyes as new skool/old skool. The cd version of this is completely out of production and has been for yrs & is a collectors item if you possess it. Its nice on the contrare that although the old times have passed, we can regain those times of the past through its songs. If its out of production, iTunes may still have it. This is an out of production classic that iTunes happens to have.
classic music from DPGC....and everything for six cuts....youd be stupid not to get it
