In the late 1980s, West Coast hip hop took over the game, and soon it was Dr. Dre who found himself on top. During the late 1980s, he rose to fame, with NWA, putting Ruthless Records on top. Once that situation ended, Dre moved on with Death Row.
When the 1990s started, Death Row was on top of the game, and the label had Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, and many others. In the end, the label’s strength became its weakness. Eventually, the label imploded, following a historic run of success.
Kurupt stopped by “The Breakfast Club,” sitting down with DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God. During the interview, Kurupt spoke on the history of Death Row Records, plus his own history being a Philadelphia native and moving to LA as an adult. He also broke down the many beefs the label had, plus his and DMX’s beef, over Foxy Brown.
