how exactly did kurupt (and rage) hook up with dre?
« on: June 09, 2011, 07:27:41 PM »
For as much shit as I know about the history of west coast rap, I was never too sure how my favorite rapper got his start.

I know doc and dre were together (no homo) since ruthless and how they met. And I know dre linking up with snoop, nate, daz, and rbx was all because of warren g hooking dre up with snoop.

For rage I always heard dre heard her demo from some group she was working with or some shit. Some fill in the blanks for me.

And for kurupt, I've heard a few different stories. One was that he was already down with daz and that's how he met dre (which I doubt). Another story was that he was at a party at dre's house and he wanted to rap for dre. Dre agreed but warned him that if he wasn't feeling his freestyle they were gonna throw him in the pool. Kurupt blacked the fuck out and that was that.

Anyone know for sure?

This guy aint no crip, and I'm 100% sure on that because he doesn't type like a crip, I know crips, and that fool is not a crip.

don't quote me word for word on this but...

some event, party, whatever you want to call it - both snoop and kurupt were there and never knew each other at the time.  supposedly kurupt out freestyled snoop and snoop was impressed and took him to me the deathrow posse.

Kurupt started his career, before Snoop and Daz. he was on a mainstream-cd back in 1991, before he even met Dre or Snoop

"kurupt came in independently through his manager" i remember that quote from an interview somewhere.

kurupt snapped out in the 90's.... drugs and alcohol definitly slowed him up in the last 8 years or so. his verse on that quik album is not good at all, probaly the worse part of that album.
