2010, August 17th.. some more Dogg Pound crew, with Tha Doggpound release of “100 Wayz.” Their 7th album, this was supposed to be released on Koch Records, delays, and fuxery ensued, The album “That Was Then, This is Now” was released first, DPG left Koch Records, and when 100 way finally dropped different songs were included, as many of the previous tracks were put on “That was Then” album. Released also on Doggystyle Records, this album did include “Dogg Pound Gangstaz”, and tracks with Soopafly, RBX, Nate Dogg, Dru Down, Lady of Rage, Mac Shawn, Latoiya Williams, Butch Cassidy and Celly Cel.

Guests include The Game, Butch Cassidy, Musiq Soulchild, Young Jeezy and WC. “Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It”, was the single pushed, with “Do Ya Thing” and “Why My?” with Musiq Souldchild were the other 2 singles. “I Got My Locs On” with Jeezy, “It Takes a Nation”, “Jack N the Box” and “Get Used to it” with WC and the Game all slapping tracks.
Last for this week, also outta LA… Tray Deee’s “The General’s List”. More of a compilation with production by Dre, Fredwreck, Meech Wells and Tony Touch. All the DPG usuals, Snoop, Tha Eastsidaz, Bad Azz, also Kokane, Outlawz, 40 Glocc and LV. Though “IZUWITIT” was the single put out as the album dropped, “Hard Times on Planet Earth” with the late Badazz is still the cut. And Gangsta take on Racism, and the War on African people inside and outside the hells of Amerikkka, the prisons. Strong Cut. All this in the MIX. Yee.
