3. New York
Talking about their infamous “New York New York” video, Kurupt says that they only knocked down buildings in it and whatnot because they got shot at in Redhook, Brooklyn after Biggie got on the radio and basically incited the violence. Kurupt says that the song itself was taken out of context and they didn’t mean to disrespect NY until after they got shot at. The Dogg Pound actually thought they were going to get a lot of love from New York and that’s why they came to NY to shoot the video. Though Tupac was in jail when it dropped, Kurupt says that Pac told him that record held him down when he was in jail and fed the fire growing inside of him.
