Profile:
Founded by Snoop Dogg.
Tha Dogg Pound is Daz Dillinger and Kurupt (Young Gotti). Along with Nate Dogg (R.I.P) and Priest "Soopafly" Brooks.
Introduced by Dr. Dre on "The Chronic" album (Death Row, 1992).
Daz and Snoop are First Cousins. They met Kurupt at a house party. Snoop and Kurupt freestyle battled all night and decided to stay in contact.
Their manager is Big-A from Compton. Dat Nigga Daz handles most of the production, along with Soopafly and they have worked with musical legend DJ Quik.

An extended family, referred to as D.P.G.C. (short for the Dogg Pound Gangsta Crip due to their gang affiliations), has over time been made up of Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg (R.I.P.), Uncle June Bugg (R.I.P.), Soopafly, RBX, Warren G, Tray Deee, Bad Azz, Lil' 1/2 Dead, Big C-Style, Lil' C-Style, Lady Of Rage, E-White, Goldie Loc, Kurupt's younger brother Roscoe, The Twinz, Butch Cassidy, Lil Hershey Loc, Hi-Tek, DJ Battlecat, and DJ Jam.
(The group made their 1992 rap debut on Dr. Dre's "The Chronic", on various songs. They also appeared on Snoop's classic "Doggystyle", and the Death Row soundtracks "Murder Was The Case" and "Above The Rim". Their solo, "Dogg Food", was released in 1995. It was another addition to the controversy of rap music due to the sexual and violent lyrics and went on to sell three million albums).

In 1996, they were featured on 2Pac's Death Row Records legendary and widely acclaimed album "All Eyez on Me". Kurupt and Daz went on to have solo success in 1998. They both eventually left Death Row Records, and Kurupt started Antra Records, while Daz started D.P.G. Recordz. In 2002 a feud arose between the two when Kurupt decided to sign back with Death Row Records, upsetting everyone involved with the group. His awaited Death Row release "Against Tha Grain" had been postponed several times while Kurupt was on the label, later being released in August of 2006, after he was off. Daz was awared $22 Million in his lawsuit against Death Row. In January 2005, Daz made another D.P.G. Records release titled "Tha Dogg Pound Gangsta" LP. Tha Dogg Pound then got back together as a group and released "Dillinger & Young Gotti" II in November 2005. In 2006 Snoop Dogg decided to return to the group, and the three released their official reunion album "Cali Iz Active". 4 albums followed "Cali iz Active")
Daz made a collaboration album with W.C. and Kurupt joined West Coast All-Star group 1st Generation and promotes his "Moon Rocks" Brand.
