Tha Dogg Pound continue their long, successful career with their new LP "Dogg Chit." The cover and title is reminiscent of their debut together, "Dogg Food," from 1995. Daz and Kurupt have been doing their thing since they made their debut on on Dr. Dre's "The Chronic." Daz has always been a great producer and gets back on that, unlike the disappointment, "Cali iz Active." All the guests on that album didn't fit. But as for this one, it's a different story. Kurupt sounds as motivated as he has been in quite a while, he sounded washed up a few months ago. But that isn't the case this time. Daz and Kurupt are on every song.
The guests are The Game, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and Bad Azz. The list is short as it should be. The beats are handled by Daz, and was assisted by Ivan Johnson and Soopafly on some songs. This is great improvement from "Cali iz Active." They sound like they used too which is great. The album stars off with Get out my way, and I'll Bury ya, which both have very solid beats and lyrics. It also sets that attitude and tone for the album. Then the next Everybody, which isn't as impressive but still is decent. The Game makes an appearance, which is pretty tight. The first single is Vibe. It slows down the album and provides one of the best cuts on this LP, Snoop Dogg provides the chorus.
Too $hort comes in and raps more of those freaky tales on Can't get enough, he does his thing as he has done for the past twenty years. Dat ain't my baby, has a classic beat, but the lyrics just about don't comprehend. The album continues with more of that gangsta rap, then probably the best song on the album is a summer joint, It'z a good ass day. The beat is great, lyrics go to together to make a great song. Although the album ends on a bad note with the worst cut, Pull ya drawz down, with Snoop Dogg.
But overall, just after 8 months since their last album, they come back very strong. Also look out for an album in 2008 from Dogg Pound. But, this is a must get for a Dogg Pound fan.
