3 Tha Hardway? I don't think ever heard anythin' about that and those three are my favorite rappers from the West Coast with Xzibit. Is there any old interviews about this project etc?
Heres an excerpt from a NY Times article where its mentioned, theres an MTV one where he talks about it but im having trouble finding it.      Snoop Doggy Dogg has recorded an EP of remixes and new songs called ''Doggumentary,'' which remains unreleased in Death Row's vaults; an untitled new album for which he has no clear release plans, and a collaboration with the rappers Ice Cube and Kurupt under the name Three the Hard Way. It is to be released on A&M Records. He also plans to record a collaboration with his estranged producer, Dr. Dre, ''Break Up to Make Up,'' and a concept album and movie about his experiences with Death Row, ''Corleone's Revenge,'' this year  Heres a link to the full article.         https://www.nytimes.com/1998/03/14/arts/label-reports-signing-snoop-doggy-dogg.html

No Limit Records, the label run by Master P, one of hip-hop's most successful self-made executives, rappers and filmmakers, announced yesterday that it had signed Snoop Doggy Dogg to the label. It said that on Aug. 4 it would release Snoop Doggy Dogg's long-awaited third album, ''Da Game Is to Be Sold Not to Be Told.''

One of the country's biggest gangsta rappers, Snoop Doggy Dogg helped build the label Death Row into the biggest rap label of the early 90's, but it is being investigated by the Justice Department because of allegations that it uses violent business tactics and had a financial relationship with a convicted drug dealer. The company denies the allegations. But recently the rapper has been criticizing the label in public, accusing it of withholding payments, cheating him of his song-publishing rights and letting its business go dormant with its head, Suge Knight, serving a nine-year prison term for parole violations. (David Kenner, Death Row's lawyer, did not return calls seeking comment.)

In one new song, ''Death Row Killa,'' Snoop Doggy Dogg calls the label ''snitches'' and ''wannabe gangstas,'' rapping that his ''life ain't worth losing'' in a drive-by shooting like the one that killed Tupac Shakur. Snoop Doggy Dogg said he felt that with songs like this, ''the average record label wouldn't want to put out my new music because of certain things I say and the way I say them.''

In another unreleased song, Snoop Doggy Dogg raps about his autonomy from Death Row, comparing himself to Master P as a paradigm of independence. As recently as two weeks ago, Death Row Records was saying that Snoop Doggy Dogg still owed it six albums under his contract. Death Row Records did not return phone calls inquiring whether he had been released from the label. Snoop Doggy Dogg says that his contract was breached and that under a California statute limiting personal service contracts to seven years, he is a free rapper.
 Complicating the matter, a representative for Snoop Doggy Dogg who spoke on condition of anonymity said the No Limit announcement was misleading and that discussions were in progress with several major record labels on distributing the rapper's new albums. A spokeswoman for No Limit, however, said that Snoop Doggy Dogg was in the studio working with producers and executives on new songs for the label.

Snoop Doggy Dogg has recorded an EP of remixes and new songs called ''Doggumentary,'' which remains unreleased in Death Row's vaults; an untitled new album for which he has no clear release plans, and a collaboration with the rappers Ice Cube and Kurupt under the name Three the Hard Way. It is to be released on A&M Records. He also plans to record a collaboration with his estranged producer, Dr. Dre, ''Break Up to Make Up,'' and a concept album and movie about his experiences with Death Row, ''Corleone's Revenge,'' this year.    ''Basically I'm just trying to put out the best music I can put out,'' he said. ''I'm peaking right now. I'm not in my prime, but I'm peaking. And when you're peaking you're supposed to keep doing what you do. I just want to be completely out of this situation with Death Row, get my publishing, move forward, get me a great new situation and get my life started all over again.''
