It was over ten years ago that Tha Dogg Pound laced the music world with their multiplatinum-selling debut album, Dogg Food. With Bigg Snoop Dogg again at the helm along with Daz Dillinger and Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti, the bangin' and much-anticipated new disc CALI IZ ACTIVE is re-energizing the Golden State music movement and galvanizing the West Coast.
“We just came back together and made a classic Dogg Pound gangsta album,” says Daz Dillinger. “Some of the original G sounds with a new twist, new millennium G shit!” adds Kurupt.
Doggy Style Records in conjunction with KOCH Records will release Tha Dogg Pound's new album,
CALI IZ ACTIVE on June 27, 2006. The CD follows Snoop's Welcome to Tha Chuuch – Da Album, which contained the Dogg Pound heater, “Real Soon.”
This summer, Tha Dogg Pound will open for Ice Cube in a national tour which is set to kick off on April 20th in Anaheim, CA and run through June. The West Coast bill is sure to be one of the hottest tickets around.
Besides Daz and Kurupt spittin' fire on the mic, the new album features Tha Dogg Pound family (Snoop Dogg, RBX, Soopafly, and Bad Azz). Also appearing are B-Real, Busta Rhymes, David Banner, Paul Wall and producing legends Battlecat, Fredwreck, The Alchemist, Swizz Beatz, Jazzy Phae and Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs. “A lot of people came together to make this Dogg Pound record the biggest and best it can be, and with Snoop's leadership we can never go wrong,” says Kurupt.
“I'm like the quarterback,” says Snoop Dogg, “putting the team together, gluing it together. I'm the one that puts everything in the proper perspective. Get everyone thinking alike, moving alike, loving alike. Let everybody know that it's built on love first. If we love each first, the music will kick right in.”
Tha Dogg Pound album's long list of hardcore cuts will be strong contenders for heavy national radio rotation-- like the first single, the Battlecat-produced and soon-to-be classic, “Cali Iz Active,” producer Ryan Leslie's contribution “Heavyweights,” and “Dogg Pound Gangstaz” produced by The Alchemist.
“I'm letting everybody know that the West Coast is definitely making a strong comeback,” says Snoop Dogg. “Tha Dogg Pound sound is fresh and fly. It's a beautiful thing for me to be able to work with them, and when we drop this album it's gonna shake the whole game up! Chuuch.”
