West Coast Rap – Kurupt – Throwback Music on – SNJ
Written by 107PowerFM.Net on February 12, 2017
Blaqkout (stylized as “BlaQKout”) is a collaboration album by rapper/record producer DJ Quik and rapper Kurupt. It is completely produced by DJ Quik. The album debuted at #61 on the Billboard 200, selling 8,800 copies its first week.
While putting the finishing touches on Snoop Dogg’s acclaimed Ego Trippin album in early 2008, DJ Quik had an idea. The rapper-producer-musician-entrepreneur wanted to do a full-length album with Kurupt, the Dogg Pound member and Snoop Dogg affiliated-rapper he’d known since Death Row Records’ mid-1990s heyday and had worked with sparingly over the years. The inspiritation for the name of the album was taken from the Method Man & Redman collaborational albums Blackout! and Blackout! 2 since this was indeed a collaboration album. It was modified to include the letter Q to represent DJ Quik and the letter K to represent Kurupt. Kurupt revealed the album was recorded within 6 months.
