Kurupt Speaks On Suge Knight Offering Deals To Anyone Who Could Beat Him In A Battle

Snoop Lion refers to his first battle with Kurupt as "some magical shit," says it lasted 45 minutes.

During the newest episode of Snoop Lion’s web series, Double G News Network (GGN), the rapper revisited the past with help from fellow emcee Kurupt. Together the two former Death Row Records artists spoke on their first time meeting, battling other emcees, and the numerous rap names they went through before choosing a final name.

According to Kurupt, battling with rappers years ago was so intense that Death Row Records founder Suge Knight was willing to hand out label deals to any artist able to beat Kurupt.

“I remember Death Row was giving out deals if you could serve Kurupt,” the rapper revealed. “Remember we was out of town? Three niggas came up and these other two niggas. ‘Nigga if you can serve Kurupt, you can get a deal.’”

“Suge Knight was notorious for that,” Snoop added.

Minutes before ending his latest episode of GGN with a fitting freestyle from Kurupt, Snoop spoke on his first encounter with the rapper, which happened to be a nearly 45-minute long battle he referred to as “some magical shit."

“So, when I bumped into you, I know I was fresh out of jail. I was turning to the Dogg,” Snoop explained. “I had the brim on with the all black and gray coat. And I’m watching you serve all my homies…I’m laying up against the wall like a Chinese karate movie nigga. This nigga cutting everybody. He just dropping all the homies…We going at it like 45 minutes strong nigga. Whoever make it out of us two, nigga it’s our responsibility to put us back together again cause this is some magical shit.”

    • YESSIR
      VERY TRUE. KURUPT IS AN ALLTIME LYRICIST. THE ONLY THING THAT HELD KURUPT BACK WAS HIMSELF. WITH THAT SAID, HE IS STILL AN UNTOUCHABLE LYRICIST.

    Reading these comments, I see it must be a lot of young niggas and niggas who just wasn't up on what was going on. The people who think Snoop couldn't freestyle and are looking at his style later once he became older and the game changed. SNOOP WAS RIDICULOUS. He freestyled a lot of the classic material he became known for. Songs like "The Shiznit" was a complete freestyle. Dre used to turn him loose and beats, real freestyles, not stopping and punching in when you mess up. For real.
    • thank god
      100% agree. finally somebody with brains
  • Real Talk
    Imagine the looks on all them niggaz faces, if Slim Shady in his prime approached them and ripped Kurupt to shreds.

      YOU GUYS HAVE NO CLUE. KURUPT WOULD HAVE COOKED EMINEM EASILY. MANY OF YOU GUYS SPEAKING ON EMS BATTLE CAREER HAVE NO CLUE. EM WAS A GOOD BATTLE RAPPER, BUT HE TOOK MANY L'S IN HIS CAREER. IF YOU WERE THE FAN (STAN) YOU WOULD KNOW THIS ONE ALREADY. IF YOU WANT MORE DETAILS, GO ORDER SOME OLD SOURCE/XXL MAGAZINES. IN A FEW OF THEM, HE DETAILS HIS BATTLING CAREER. SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT COOKED EMINEM ARE: SUPERNATURAL PACE WON RAH DIGGA BREEVEEVAFLOWING RHYMEFEST CONSIDER YOURSELVES EDUCATED NOW. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!!!

  • Mr Mill
    You can say what you want but Lord G was better than all of them when he was with Death Row... and still is... maybe that's why he ghostwrote for the Death Row camp.

      Eazy got points off Dre's Chronic album after he put out a lawsuit against Death Row. That's the only album he ate off of since Dre wanted to get out of his Ruthless records contract.

      Eazy got points off Dre's Chronic album after he put out a lawsuit against Death Row, and that's the real story. Both you clowns need to lookup the court documents, and stop gossiping like little bitches.

      Strange that you even think you know anything about that. Beyond the music who cares. Stop gossiping hoe.
    • Grow Up-Get A Life-Plan Your Future
      Agreed, but you have to understand that people say dumb shi& on the internet because their life is a waste. Working a Pick & Serve with no ambition and no future. What do we expect?
  • me
    i bet in the freestyle snoop spelled out his name like 30 times
    • Anonymous
      Only 30? It was 45 mins long you'd expect at least 135.
