The Dogg Pound Enlists Ice Cube and Xzibit To Get "Active" in L.A.

ImageLast weekend marked a special occasion for West Coast Hip-Hop as Ice Cube, Dilated Peoples and Xzibit were among the West Coast MCs that gathered at Los Angeles' Elysian Park for The Dogg Pound's "Cali Iz Active" video shoot.

The gathering also included appearances by Battlecat, Julio G, Fred Wreck, DJ Quik, WC, King Tee, Roscoe, Warren G, Too Short, Kam, Soopafly, Tyrese, MC Eiht, Mykestro, Krondon, Dilated Peoples, Big Boy and JT the Bigga Figga, among others.

"This reminds me of the 'G Thang' video, you know that video is like 12 years old," DJ Quik told reporters of the event. "We haven't had this kind of comradery in a long time, so it's wonderful."

The video will serve as the lead clip for the forthcoming Dogg Pound album of the same name.

In related news, Snoop, The Game, Daz and Soopafly are all being sued for $20 million by a former fan that says he was assaulted at their 2005 concert in Auburn, Wash.

The Dogg Pound's Cali Iz Active will hit shelves on June 27.
