Originally from Philadelphia, super emcee Kurupt found stardom in California with appearances on Dr. Dre's The Chronic and Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle, where his prolific East Coast lyricism added depth and flavor to the laid-back G-Funk sound. He and fellow Dogg Pound alumnus Daz followed up with their multiplatinum album Dogg Food. Now a solo act, Kurupt is further developing the bicoastal sound that has made him one of the most unique rappers in the business. His double album Kuruption features songs aimed at rap fans to the East, to the West, and everywhere in between. In fact, everything about his music -- lyrics, delivery and production -- reflects influences from all over the country. While the combination of style elements increases his appeal, Kurupt has earned his success with the skill to rock the mic, proving that true lyrical ability transcends all coasts and genres.
