Dogg Pound member/West Coast OG Kurupt announced yesterday in an interview with HipHopDX that he and the rest of the Dogg Pound crew were linking up with Cleveland, OH legends Bone Thugs-N-harmony for a full length album, “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,” said Kurupt. “…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 seems like centuries ago, which I guess it technically was, but we are still less than 20 years removed from a time when these two camps downright hated each other. In the mid-90's, when both parties were peaking in their popularity, there was a lot of beef between the two cliques. And I'm not talking Soulja Boy vs. Chief Keef on Twitter type beef. I mean mid-90s rap beef. It all stemmed from the feud between Death Row and Ruthless Records, which, in turn, stemmed from the personal feud between Dr. Dre and Eazy-E. Dre put Dogg Pound on, Eazy-E put Bone Thugs on, 'nuff said. Call me nostalgic, but I miss these kinds of scenarios, they were much more interesting than anything current social media beefs have to offer.

Also, I don't do A&R or anything but the title Thug Pound sounds like the kind of low budget porn DVD you would spy buying a Gatorade in the hood. That being said, I'm excited to hear Bone on the mic again.
