Ex-Death Row Records Security Chief Says Biggie Ordered Tha Dogg Pound 1995 Shooting

Los Angeles, CA – During a latest interview on VladTV, former Death Row Records safety chief Reggie Wright, Jr. defined why he believes The Notorious B.I.G. ordered pictures aimed toward Tha Dogg Pound’s Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Daz Dillinger in New York in December 1995.

At the peak of the fabled East Coast versus West Coast beef within the mid-90s, Wright claims the incident occurred after Biggie acquired a tip concerning DPG’s trailer for its video shoot positioned within the Red Hook part of his native Brooklyn.

“Then we have the shooting where Biggie got on the radio and pumped up the Dogg Pound trailer getting shot up,” Wright says.

As Tha Dogg Pound filmed the video for the only “New York, New York” from their 1995 debut album Dogg Food, Wright alleges {that a} shot was fired at Tha Dogg Pound’s trailer on the behest of Biggie. Wright blames the incident was from Biggie making an on-air roll name to his goons throughout his go to to New York radio station Hot 97.

“It wasn’t a bunch of shots, but a pop shot went in their trailer,” Wright claims. “It could’ve hit anybody. We really do feel that Biggie incited that. Said, ‘Hey, how are you allowing them to film? They at such and such location filming this in New York.”

Despite the incendiary video exhibiting Snoop Dogg and his Dogg Pound cohorts destroying the New York City skyline, Wright says that Snoop believes they weren’t seeking to disrespect the birthplace of Hip Hop. Rather, he states that Snoop and DPG meant to pay homage to Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, who originate the hook of their 1982 single of the identical title.

“Snoop and Tha Dogg Pound still to this day don’t believe they were dissing New York because they felt they were paying homage to New York,” Wright says. “And that they gave up 100 percent of the publishing.”
