Dogg Pound’s Deal with Cash Money Records Falls Through

After making a surprise announcement this past August about a newly inked deal with Cash Money Records, West Coast vets Tha Dogg Pound have pulled out of the partnership. A posting on Daz and Kurupt’s official website, dated Monday November 26, cites Cash Money’s failure to produce an agreed upon sum and expresses a desire to explore other options.

The Dogg Pound’s statement reads as follows:

Tha Dogg Pound announced today that it terminated the Cash Money deal because, in short, Cash Money just couldn’t come up with the cash. Though the Tha Dogg Pound was looking forward to working with Slim and Baby, Tha Dogg Pound is moving on to pursue other endeavors. Be on the look out for Make it Rain the Movie and other albums to be released with other parties in the near future, including, Daz’s solo project, Only On the Left Side, coming soon. Chuuch, Tha Dogg Pound.

    what they need to understand is that even though kurupt has talen and daz a little nobody is gonna give top dollars for them! when was the last time one of them had a hit! they really arent relevant to the game right now,

    • BlakJustice

      Who is relevant? Saigon? J.Santana? Lil’ Wayne? Dipset? Or even Bishop Lamont? Man please, Hip Hop needs more than just Bubble Gum Music to thrive.

        @BlakJustice i cosign my dude this stuff is getting way out of control, the only time i listen to radio is to find out what club function or party they got going on people hate on mp3 players but that shit is getting me through the ringtone era

        • Criz Milz

          I feel ya on tha Dogg Pound situation but the Soulja boy’s and Hurricane Chris are for us…..its like Kris Kross its for the KIDS….we got the Jay-Z,Kanye’s,Common’s,Snoop’s,(hot albums that dropped this year)ect……i admit the radio SUCKS but hip hop now is like Soul Music they hated hip hop……we need Bubble Gum Rap to keep the world turning but its not for GROWN FOLKS

        • Criz Milz

          It was a Misprint “Soulja Boy’s and Hurricane Chris’s ARENT for us”

      • London Boy

        saigon and dip set totally different catergory more like saigon beanie sigel or saigon styles p

  • Three4

    I guess Baby is too busy making it rain on himself…

  • nappy_pappy

    man why even keep trying? no ones gonna cop that movie shit sounds horrible!! and like pee said, they are irrelevant to the game now and for a while… shulda took waited on cash money to come up with an amount cus they need all they can get right now… lol @ “Cash Money couldnt come up with the cash” CMR got the money, they just aint tryin to thro any these niggas way cus they wack, kurupt maybe got flows but daz is garbage

  • lONG cOCK bOI

    BABY JUST SPENT 100,000,000 MILLION DOLLARS IN THE GHETTO……..WHY WOULD HE SPEND 5 DOLLARS ON THA DOGG POUND AND GET A 50 CENT RETURN….

  • Latino Heat

    even if they stayed it’s not like they were gonna put album out. remember when juvi and b.g. left? cash money signed hella rappers and most never dropped albums. the ones that did dint get a real push. mack 10 and boo and gotti flopped hard. this is for the better, as dope as kurupt is, any past there prime rapper should stay independent. their fan base gets what they want and they get more money off the shit anyway. that dillinger and gotti II album they dropped in ’05 was dope for the real dpg fans.

  • DURTY

    BABY CAUGHT A CASE, SO ALL THAT MONEY GOING TO FOR HIS AQUITTAL..OR A NEW GRILL

  • fla all day

    young buck need to have daz produce his whole new album since he tryin to be the next pac, he got the outlaws and big syke. u never know somthin great might come out of it.

  • SPIKES@YAHOO.COM

    MAN I AGREE WITH KANE UP TOP. CASHMONEY HAS HAD MONEY ISSUES WITH JUVIE,BG,MANNIE FRESH. SO HOW THEY GONNA SIGN THE DOGG POUNDA AND IF THEY SIGNED THEY WOULD NEVER DROP AN ALBUM. LIL WAYNE DOIND ALL THEM MIXED TAPES AND CASH MONEY BROKE.THEY HAVE PUT ALL THERE EGGS ON THE CARTER 3. REMEMBER THE 5STAR GENERAL ALBUM IS THE LAST OF THE 100 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL… SO THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW DEAL PERIOD WHICH INCLUDE THE CARTER 3. SEE THE PROBLEM WITH THESE CMR NIGGAS IS THEY HAVE NO INVESTMENTS SMARTS. MASTER P,JAY-Z,PUFF, AND 50 ALL HAVE THAT BUSINESS SAVVY. BIRDMAN IS A HOOD NIGGA WITH NO BUSINESS SAVVY. AND HE SPENDS MONEY ON DUM SHIT LIKE HIS GRILL(HAD DONE 3 TIMES).

  • GORILLA UNIT CUZZ

    DRE SHOULD SIGNED THEM TO AFTERMATH RECORDS AND IT SHOULD BE THE RE-BIRTH OF DEATH ROW ONLY WIT OUT SUGE KNIGHT’S DRAMATIC ASS.

    • Mac Sleepy

      I agree wit you on that bru! thats the only logical solution… why even consider cash money? get the fukk outta here!

    • tha gr8 j.beezy

      EXCELLENT idea, but it makes u wonder y it hasn’t hapnd yet. suge is out of the way. that is a deal that needz 2 get done. what’s the holdup? bring bigg snoop in 2. and get back 2 tha drawing board. death row was a DYNASTY, so dre, daz, kurupt, snoop, nate dogg should come on back and give the fans wut they want. REAL GANGSTA SHIT!!!

  • british b

    Daz has had some sick albums n has raised more than lil wayne in the game.

    Just cuz he aint on a major tht dont mean him cbo and all them westcoast rappers aint milld da fcuk off.

    Daz a OG n aint in it for the fame he already in the hall of fame for the all eyez on me and makavelli production credits lol

  • hell yeah

    good riddance
    2 less washed up nobodys tryin to be relevant again after 15 years

  • Criz Milz

    Cash Money is cool but Tha Dogg Pound can do better…i been a Dogg Pound from the beginning and Slim and Baby only take care of Slim and Baby….they just start taking care of Wayne cuz he was talking about leaving…. if u notice nobody that started Cash money is still around Cash Money……Boo and Gotti Gone….Mack 10 Gone….Juve Gone….B.G. Gone….Turk Gone…..Manny Fresh Gone….so its good for Tha Dogg Pound they ended that BS b4 it started…..and whoever think Tha Dogg Pound aint got it DONT KNOW HIP HOP……..

  • http://www.hoodgrownonline.com Cartel

    Well I find it strange that two vets who’ve been in the game as long as they have haven’t really had a succesful COMPANY of their own.

    Them going to Cash Money in my opinion is like being a 60 year old man working at McDonalds under a 16 year old manager.

  • SodaHead

    Good news everyone! I am so damn glad Daz and Kurupt are not signed with these fake bloods Cash Money clowns. Fuck you if you hate on Tha Dogg Pound. You guys forgot that the WEST started this shit and that the SOUTH is barely waking up. Lil Wayne is okay but the rest are a shame. Just letting everyone know that Westcoast still have the best marijuana smoke.

  • mrddp3

    I think its cool the deal fell thru. Do you remember when Mack 10 signed to Cash Money? Right, we dont need Baby and Wayne claiming Crips. I cant take anymore of the studio gangbangers. Good luck to the Dogg Pound….
