From the archives of the DMV Channel on NO GOOD TV comes the return of one of the most legendary gangsta-rap groups in history -- Tha Dogg Pound! Only this time around, West Coast legends Kurupt and Daz Dillinger have company -- Bigg Snoop Dogg himself!

This album features Snoop as an official member and executive producer of Tha Dogg Pound, providing that classic g-funk flow we all know and love. Combined with Daz's incredible flow and Kurupt's thoroughbred lyricism, this album is a guaranteed banger! In the booth, the Dogg Pound brought out all their A-List clientele for the album, including appearances by Diddy, Ice Cube, Paul Wall, David Banner, Nate Dogg and more. Supplying the beats are super-producers Battlecat, Jazze Pha and Swizz Beatz among other noted hitmakers. The album also includes the bangers "Sittin' On 23z" and the title track "Cali Iz Active".

In the beginning, Daz and Kurupt were two of several artists on the Death Row roster. Both made minor contributions to Dre's The Chronic before making substantially larger contributions to Snoop's Doggystyle. In fact, their omnipresence on Snoop's album spawned the opportunity to capitalize on that album's success; it was no surprise then when Death Row tagged Daz and Kurupt as Snoop protégés, tagging them tha Dogg Pound for promotional reasons. Granted, Snoop played a large role in tha Dogg Pound, as did Nate Dogg, but with the release of Dogg Food, it was undeniably clear that Daz and Kurupt needed no mentoring.

Either way, it wasn't long before Daz and Kurupt embarked on full-fledged solo careers. Kurupt had success with Tha Streetz Iz a Mutha while Daz released R.A.W. Yet with Dre's return in 2000 and the steady West Coast rap renaissance that began as a result, Death Row dug through their vaults — as they had done for similar Snoop and 2Pac releases — assembling what would eventually surface as tha Dogg Pound's 2002. The album featured appearances by the likes of 2Pac, Xzibit, Nate Dogg, a remix of Jay-Z's "Change the Game" featuring the Roc-A-Fella clique, and a Dr. Dre-produced lead single, "Just Doggin."
