According to Ecko.com, Kurupt is set to drop new solo album, which will be the first all new release from a Death Row Artist since 1996. The former Dogg Pound member has spent more time acting than rapping in recent years but Suge Knight is confident in the strength of Kurupt’s record. “For Kurupt, it’s a return to the classic Dogg Pound sound. Longtime fans know that Kurupt and Death Row Records are synonymous with high-quality, hard-edged music.” said Knight in a statement. ‘Death Row Records present Kurupt- Against The Grain’ is slated to drop June 29th.
HipOnline.com caught up with with Kurupt and asked him why he thinks hip-hop artists are moving to film so much more than any other genre. “It goes hand it hand,” says Kurupt, who stars in ‘Half Past Dead’ with Ja Rule and Steven Seagal. “Videos ain’t nothing but mini-movies. Look at a lot of these videos we have to act. We have a girlfriend, gotta sing or rap to them, and if they ain’t doing music they have to act.” Check out the entire interview here.
Kurupt tells Launch.com that the original version of ‘Half Past Dead’ that the original version had he and Ja Rule killed off in the movie. “When they played the movie originally people did not like the fact that me and Ja died so they had to film me and Ja into the script towards the ending,” Kurupt said. Director Don Michael Paul took viewer reaction into consideration and revised the film to keep the pair alive.
Kurupt tells MTV News he’s helping Suge Knight put out some long-discussed releases from Tha Row. “Right now I’m just sitting behind that desk, I’m planning on chilling out for a little bit,” he said last week. “I’m going to concentrate on these movies and running this company side by side with Suge. I’m the Senior Vice President of Death Row. We’re patching up Crooked I’s album right now. The first release is going to be Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez’s album, The N.I.N.A. album, that’s the first record we are going to release from the company.” Read more.
