THA DOGG POUND (October
2008) | Interview By: Yash
Not too long ago we posted exclusive live and backstage
footage from Snoop Dogg and the Dogg Pound taken from our Dubcnn
vaults [See: Exclusive
Snoop Dogg & Dogg Pound Video Footage]. Back then we mentioned that Dubcnn
linked up with the crew again for new footage and interviews, as we were invited
to this year's European tour to cover two of their events.
Today we have
exclusive interviews, show footage and pictures from the concert in Denmark and
Croatia with Snoop Dogg & Tha Dogg Pound and J-Ro of
Tha Alkaholiks. J-Ro took us on stage to film his performance before we
caught up with Kurupt and Daz for a short video interview.
about his collabo project with DJ Quik called "Black Out" and
Daz spoke on his upcoming movie and of course the next DPG album which will have
guest appearances from Krayzie Bone, Turf Talk amongst others.
