With a Coachella headlining appearance on the calendar, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are joining forces once again for a new Dogg Pound album – according to Kurupt.
Alumni, the forthcoming project from the reunited Dogg Pound Gang, has been in motion since sometime last year. According to Kurupt, the project will include Daz Dillinger, be overseen by Dr. Dre and guided by Snoop Dogg – another clear indicator that we may never see the forever-delayed Detox album Dre's been promising for a decade.
In an interview with Cam Capone, Kurupt also explained what it's like to work with Dre. "Dr. Dre's gonna oversee things to make sure it sounds good and is tight," he explained. "Snoop's gonna basically put it together with me and Daz."
When asked what it's like to work with Dre, Kurupt made it clear that the man is still a behemoth force in the Hip-Hop world, and a motivating inspiration.
"You know it's gonna be right," he said. "It's exciting all the time. He keeps you inspired and keeps you focused."
DPG fans shouldn't get too excited just yet, however, as there's no set finish line for the album to see the light of day.
"We don't got no time frame," Kurupt explained.
The album will mark the first time a member of tha Dogg Pound has collaborated with Dr. Dre since Kurupt's appearances on the producer's album 2001, and the first time Dre has collaborated with tha Dogg Pound as a duo since he mixed their debut album, Dogg Food.
