D.P.G. DILLINGER & YOUNG GOTTI 2 THA SAGA CONTINUEZ
When Daz and Kurupt reunited after Kurupt left Tha Row west coast hip hop fans rejoiced all over and were awaiting the release of the first album the two put out back together. Well at least I was.
2.DPGC MUZIC-the first song on the album is a banger for sure and really gets you excited about this album, this is the first single. This is the perfect song to showcase these two back together. Daz and Ivan Johnson created a really hard beat that fits the Pound perfectly and will have your head nodding. Daz sounds get over this beat but Kurupt kills this track and he sounds energized about being back with Daz, as does Daz about Kurupt.
3.BLAST EM SKIT
4.CUZ I'M A GANGSTA-DJ Xtra Large produced this slow pounding production that seems like it would have been right at home on the first DPG album. Kurupt destroys this track easily and delivers with some nice battle inspired lyrics, and Daz sounds great on the hook. Of course verse wise Daz lays down that distinctive flow of his we all know and love, in fact lyrically he steps it up in this one.
5.HITTIN' DONUTZ IN THA STREETZ-Ivan Johnson and Daz return to drop one of the smoothest instrumentals ever, very pleasing to the ears. The hook for this song is just as smooth and very catchy. Both Daz and Kurupt sound excellent over this beat, Kurupt adjusts his flow to fit it and this type of beat is right up Daz's ally. Great song, classic.
6.SAY IT-the same production team returns to drop another radio friendly smooth catchy beat, and succeed in creating another hit. In fact this is one of if not my favorite songs on the album. The hook for this song is extremely catchy and all of the verses are just that as well. This would have been the perfect single for the album, and with a video could have been huge in my opinion. Both Kurupt and Daz sound great on this song, I love Kurupt's flow on this song.
7.WE GITT-the same production team three times in a row and once again succeed in crafting something banging. This horn driven track is perfect for the Pound to blaze stuff to, although I feel this song is a little of a step down from the previous tracks. Still this is a good song and straight bumps.
8.U REMIND ME-once again the same production team is in the house and along with Soopafly they create another well crafted production. The hook from Men-Nefer sounds great but a little off to me. Kurupt does his thing on this song as does Daz, another good song.
9.MAKE ME A BELIEVER-Daz and Ivan create a nice piano and flute driven track that sounds like classic Dogg Pound. The hook for this song is great as well and fits the beat perfectly. Daz adjusts his flow on this track, and to me it is ok but not great. Kurupt's verse is good but if you listen to his verse it sounds like he wasn't even there to record it.
10.I LUV WHEN U-this could have been a lovely single for this album, it revives 2pac's "Late Night" instrumental. Daz and Ivan recreated this and added a little extra feeling to it and brought forth a great instrumental. Kurupt sounds excellent on this track, and Daz sounds just as good. This reminds me of the song "Feels Good" off of Daz's "RAW" album. The hook for this track sounds beautiful, the female singing sounds great. Should have been a single, the video for this on the DPG DVD was great, looked cool outside in that snow.
11.WHAT U GONE DO?-Daz and Ivan return to drop a more bass driven harder type track, in which they succeed. But it feels like it is missing something. Kurupt spits real well on this track, delivering some great verses. Daz does his thing on this track, and the hook is cool.
12.PUSH BACC-LT Hutton provides an excellent production for this track that is perfect for The Dogg Pound. This is another one would have sounded right at home on the first DPG album. Kurupt kills this track and delivers with a great hook. Daz does his thing as well on this track, another good song.
13.RIDE & CREEP-DJ Xtra Large returns and drops another banging track with this slow paced classic. And D-Sharp provides a cool hook for this song, and Daz even disses Guerilla Black in his verse. And of course Kurupt holds it down on this song. This is another classic track off of this album, great song.
14.OUTRO [FEELS GOOD TO BE A DOGG POUND GANGSTA]-Daz and Ivan return to produce the final song on the album and have created another cool beat. This is a cool ending track, and Kurupt sounds right at home on this. Daz sounds great on this track and made a very cool sounding hook. Over all a good end to the album.
This was a great album and it was great to have Kurupt and Daz back together.
