Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Los Angeles, CA -- West Coast lyrical great Kurupt and his newest partner in musical crime J. Wells are no strangers to a group situation. Kurupt, best known as one-half of the multi-platinum rap group Tha Dogg Pound teams with artist/producer J. Wells, a member of LA’s legendary Likwit crew (King Tee, Tha Alkaholiks, others) for their debut effort “Digital Smoke”. In stores June 5, “Digital Smoke” pays homage to Kurupt and J. Wells’ beloved city of Los Angeles with special guest appearances by Goodie Mob, Tha Alkaholiks, Kokane, Roscoe, James DeBarge and Kurupt’s fiancée, Gail Gotti.

“This is a different flavor,” Kurupt says. “This is along the lines of what J. Wells is doing and we’re letting people know that this generation of West Coast is coming with that fire.” That fire has been set ablaze with their horn-propelled lead single “All We Smoke”. J. Wells, in particular, uses the song as a way to explain his rap heritage. “I’m talking about how I came in the game and about cats that influenced me, like DJ Quik, like Battlecat, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and N.W.A,” J. Wells explains. “I talk about my addition to the West Coast and to hip-hop, period. Kurupt is on there spitting, killing it.”
