Kurupt lived in Pennsylvania with his mother and sisters until he was 16, when he moved to California to start his music career. At the beginning of the ’90s, he signed with Death Row Records, the company where many known rappers had contracts: Lady of Rage, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, RBX, and Dr. Dre. Kurupt appeared on Dr. Dre’s album “The Chronic”, on Snoop Dogg’s album “Doggystyle” and he launched the album “Dogg Food”, together with Daz, his group partner in “The Dog Pound”. “Dogg Food” is one of his best albums up to date, with more than four million copies sold.
