On November 11, 2008, the heydays of the Wild, Wild West will be revived by two of gangsta rap’s most promising siblings; Kurupt and Roscoe. Distributed by Koch and released by High Powered Entertainment, The Frank and Jess Story is sure to be a raucous ride that takes listeners on a lyrical conquest through the day-to-day antics of two well-respected and recognized rappers on all coasts.
Named after notorious brothers, American outlaws; Frank and Jesse James; The Frank and Jess Story features tracks of all flavors and the sonic versatility of seasoned lyricists. Younger brother Roscoe shines with the self-assurance of an artist at the top of his game, while Big Brother Kurupt delivers his sharp, bravado-infused vernacular and wit. The combination of Kurupt’s tongue twisting complexity and Roscoe’s rebelliously eager flow is not to be overlooked.
Produced by lauded producer John “J” Silva, tracks like “I Miss U” and the strip-teaser “Give Me a Lapdance,” treats fans to a melodic edge, while anthems “All I Need” and “Hate on Me,” boast a contagious bounce meshed with the verbal voracity associated with the duo.
The album also stars notable rhyme-slingers and track assassins: fellow Dogg Pound member Daz Dillinger, Too Short, G-funk crooner Kokane and Mrs. Kurupt herself, Gail Gotti.
Celebrated throughout the world as a member of Tha Dogg Pound and a solo artist, Kurupt aka Kurupt Young Gotti gave us the popular hits; “We Can Freak It” and “What Would U Do.” He has also contributed his lyrical abilities to Dre’s The Chronic (1992) and Snoop’s Doggystyle (1993).
Most recently, Kurupt’s work was mentioned by VIBE magazine as one of the top 25 most slept on albums. He has appeared in a bevy of films and appeared as a regular Rap Coach on MTV’s Celebrity Rap Superstar.
