Before they fell out not long before his death, Tupac and Snoop Dogg, along with the Outlawz and Tha Dogg Pound, were planning a collaborative album together as a group called Thug Pound. Just as Tupac had given the Outlawz members nicknames, he also gave Tha Dogg Pound’s Kurupt an “Outlawz alias” (Kurupt Young Gotti) and one to Daz (Daz Dillinger). “Dudes started recording songs together; it was an idea in the air,” the Outlawz’s Young Noble told me. “It was an idea that was brewing that definitely would have came to light if none of the bullshit would have happened.”
