Dogg Pound Gangstaz album? As in everybody from DPG? I'd love to hear a compilation full of unreleased songs from the original Dogg Pound members.

Sound great but what's that? An og unreleased project of DPG or random old tracks?

If they step their game up I wanna see album notes like when and where tracks were recorded and for what project...musicians involved. If it was a demo etc etc. Big C-Style sets standards on that.

Did the Snoop greatest hits already get rereleased in a boxset with doggystyle & tha doggfatha?

Thanks for the info man but i'm pretty sure if John Payne sent you that in a private message he probably didnt want it to be known by everybody just yet. I wouldn't expect him to let you in on anymore info from now on since you posted it.

after the Crooked I n Kurupt fiasco, ill take everythin that is related to WideAwake wit a grain of salt.
wit "unreleased",, they mean --->> "unreleased but still available for download on the internet"

probly get 5 or 6 "new" songs at the most
that label is pathetic

I hope they release more unreleased material.  I'm not hardly about to buy Doggystyle & Tha Doggfather all over again in the year 2012.  

For the record I brought "The Chronic" and "The Lost Sessions".  I mean I might've returned "The Chronic" after I ripped "Smoke On" but I still brought it.

Canadian incompetency at its best my friend.

By the way Death Row records was founded in 1991 as far as know, so nice try to create another myth but it don't take.  A label founded with Vanilla Ice's money let's never forget please  hehe

So are they ever going to do a Pac project? I thought that was one of the bigger draw cards of buying the label. Looking forward to the Dogg Pound project as long as it's mixed in proper quality. After buying "Lost Sessions" and hearing the shit quality on that every release is a download before buying type of scenario now.

TOP SECRET INFO LEAK: a bunch of garbage and a dpg album with probably no unheard material will make their way to amazon.com for 2 days on a glorified cd-r before they go out of print and wide awake folds.

Wideawake releases always look at least decent on paper but they've yet to give us one that actually delivered so it's hard to even get remotely excited about one at this point.

I thought that Nate Dogg took most of his records with him when he left Death Row.

funnily enough the Efrain remaster shits all over the official release. WA just haven't got any idea of how to handle the business.

the Danny Boy release was a good one on paper and the potential was there, but again the sound quality was terrible. they use the excuse that the DAT tapes are in poor condition etc, but that doesn't change the fact that a forum cat (albeit one with some reasonable equipment) was able to take one of their releases and make it sound significantly better. that's shameful.
