The Rapper: Kurupt
The Hip-Hop Duo He Was A Part Of: Tha Dogg Pound
His Solo Accomplishments: After the success of DPG's 1995 album, Dogg Food, Kurupt spent a couple years recording songs for his debut solo album, Kuruption! It did well on the charts, peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart, but wasn't received particularly well by critics. But his subsequent solo albums, including 1999's Tha Streetz Iz a Mutha and 2001's Space Boogie: Smoke Odyssey, were more popular and established Kurupt as one of the West Coast's top spitters.
