Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti is making the biggest underground record in West Coast history. Kurupt, 1/3 of the infamous Dogg Pound comes back with a fury. Everyone underground DJs and West Coast fans are rejoicing as they are set to purchase "Same Day Different Sh*t" released June 20th, 2006. Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti is dubbed as Gangsta Rap's most lyrical rapper. This CD is packed with a West Coast Gangsta anthem that Mom and Pop retailers, and the entire urban community is anticipating. Daz Dillinger explains, "Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti has potent lyrics. He has the ability to shut down anyone that comes up against him." Dillinger continues, "Kurupt has a fan base that is based on word of mouth alone." This is certainly true as Kurupt's home base is California, the mother of independent records, West Coast residents do not depend on the radio to dictate their purchasing power. Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti continued to successfully bring hits and an anthem that was fitting for any individual who was struggling in the ghettos of America. Arnold White reveals, "This album is just for those who like it raw, who would like to really get the uncut truth. He believes in staying true to his core fan base. While this may not give a lot of commercial success his art is not compromised."

Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti explains, "Same Day, Different Sh*t is an album that will do exactly what the record label wants it to do get into the hands of the core fan base of urban listeners, and they want something that will bang out their radio system as they ride in the neighborhoods trying to evade the every day pains of this system." This album will shed light on those who wanted to know if he still has it. Not only does he have it, he is able to flow against anyone that tests him. Brian Mccullin explains, "Many attribute Kurupt and try to make him a West Coast and regional artist, but people forget that he is a Universal Emcee. He has the agility to go against the grain and flow and bend with the times. That's what makes him so relevant."    This album is the 'gangsta's' anthem. It's a rap version of Marvin Gaye's soulful blues, every trouble and good time that an individual can have is right here on this album. From start to finish there is no disappointment.

DJ Who, Radio Director reveals, "A lot of people on the west coast are really dedicated to Kurupt. He isn't missing a beat. But this album is going to capture the east coast fan base who want to continue to stay true to the art of Hip Hop grit, grafitti, pain, and struggle, that expression. The Dogg Pound brings the art back to reality rap a picture black and white of what really is happening in the neighborhoods." DJ Who continues, "Let's face it this is for the Gangsters." Same Day Different Sh*T will show Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti's lyrical ability to devour anyone and anything to get in his way. Ms. Miller reveals, "There is no where for you to hide if you come up against Kurupt a.k.a. Young Gotti, he is just that crafty and skillful in his word play that he will make all pay homage rather you are friend or foe." Same Day Different Sh*T debuts June 20, 2006.


Kurupt began his winding career with Death Row Records and rose to momentary fame alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, but struggled to establish himself as a successful solo artist. Born Ricardo Brown in Philadelphia in 1972, as a teen he moved to Hawthorne, CA, where he befriended Snoop and joined the roster of Death Row Records. He debuted on Dre's Chronic album (1992) and continued to contribute guest appearances to successive Death Row releases, most notably Snoop's Doggystyle (1993). He ultimately debuted as one-half of Tha Dogg Pound, a partnership with rapper/producer Daz Dillinger spun-off from Snoop's enormous success at that time. Together with Daz and Snoop, Kurupt enjoyed sizable success with Dogg Food (1995) and its hit singles: "Let's Play House" and "New York, New York." Three years later the then-A&M-affiliated Antra Records released Kuruption! (1998), the rapper's ambitious double-disc solo debut. The album met modest success but did not make much of a commercial impact, nor did its tighter, more traditional follow-up, Tha Streetz Is a Mutha (1999). Kurupt's next release, Space Boogie: Smoke Odyssey (2001), aimed for crossover success, incorporating pop-rap elements as well as unlikely big-name guests like Fred Durst and Everlast, but again made little impact beyond the rapper's limited following. Meanwhile, Kurupt teamed with Daz for another Dogg Pound album, Dillinger & Young Gotti (2001), which presented a much more underground sound, released independently by D.P.G. Recordz. During the same time, Death Row released 2002 (2001), a collection of leftovers from Tha Dogg Pound's mid-'90s era. In the wake of these many releases and little

accompanying commercial success, Kurupt returned to the long-quiet Death Row label in 2002 and helped Suge Knight revive the infamous label.
