Legendary Dogg Pound member Kurupt brings his Philadelphia to California roots full circle, teaming up with the fast rising ‘Philly to Cali’ trio Tangled Thoughts to deliver the ground breaking new album entitled appropriately “Philly 2 Cali”. Merging the best of the East with the best of the West, the nineteen track full-length features a ‘who’s who’ of CA and PA rappers, including appearances from Freeway, Sen Dog of Cypress Hill and Mellow Man Ace (now collectively known as The Reyes Bros.), Gillie Da Kid, Roscoe, Ab Liva, Gail Gotti and more. Consisting of Tek, Casanova and De, Tangled Thoughts was birthed in early 2000 in the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. In Spring 2005, they hooked up with Kurupt. After a few months of working together, Kurupt convinced the trio to take their act to the West Coast. In Fall 2005, that’s just what they did. The three packed up their cars and hit the road. With a fresh outlook and new surroundings, Tangled Thoughts got off to quick start in 2006. Casanova landed an on-air job at 103.3 The Vibe in Ventura County, De’s has been working with Infamous/G-Unit artist Gail Gotti writing rhymes and Tek has been producing tracks for The Dogg Pound, Jayo Felony and mulit platinum producer Swizz Beats, among others. Jump ahead to 2007, and the boys have focused all their energy and put together one hell of an album. Refreshing and youthful song topics, clever lyrics and tracks full of deep, layered music is what Tangled Thoughts is all about, and their goal is to bring the true essence of Hip Hop back. “Philly to Cali” is the first step in that process.
