Kurupt revealed that his battles were intense to the point that Death Row leader Suge Knight offered deals to anyone who could beat him.âI remember Death Row was giving out deals if you could serve Kurupt,â he said. âRemember we was out of town? Three niggas came up and these other two niggas. âNigga if you can serve Kurupt, you can get a deal.ââ
âSuge Knight was notorious for that,â Snoop confirmed.
On their own battle, the rappers described the event as a historical moment.
âSo, when I bumped into you, I know I was fresh out of jail. I was turning to the Dogg,â Snoop began. âI had the brim on with the all black and gray coat. And Iâm watching you serve all my homiesâ¦Iâm laying up against the wall like a Chinese karate movie nigga. This nigga cutting everybody. He just dropping all the homiesâ¦We going at it like 45 minutes strong nigga. Whoever make it out of us two, nigga itâs our responsibility to put us back together again cause this is some magical shit.â
