Against the Grain is the fourth studio album by rapper Kurupt and his first on Death Row Records as a solo artist. Kurupt signed back on to Death Row Records, except as a solo artist in 2002. The album was supposed to be released in 2004, but was delayed. It was finally released in August 2005. It was critical because it was Death Row's first freshly recorded album in over 4 years. Unfortunately, the album went almost unnoticed due to the lack of promotion by Koch Records, which currently distributes all of Death Row's albums. Furthermore, Death Row encouraged fans to not purchase this album because the track list was altered. Certain tracks were removed and others added. It did peak at number 60 on the Billboard 200 on September 2005. The cut tracks were later released on a bootleg compilation titled Against tha Grain E.P.. The track "Calico" featuring The Dayton Family was also on their album Family Feud

review by . February 20, 2012
         A little listening music while you read.      Kurupt ft. Tha Dayton Family - Calico         KURUPT   AGAINST THA GRAIN      “Finally KURUPT has dropped this album, after years of delays and drama "AGAINST THA GRAIN" finally hit the streets” I said when picking this years ago. I must admit I was surprised it was actually on the shelves even after the date …
Quick Tip by . February 20, 2012
This was a great album in my opinion but of course Kurupt is an all time favorite of mine. The production on this album is indeed a highlight for me and Kurupt switches up his flow to fit the different instrumentals. After its release both Kurupt and Death Row were saying not to buy this album because the distributer added and took songs off. Guess they wanted to include the DPG diss tracks, but by the time this was released they were all cool again.
