Da Bulldogs, formerly united as Ed O.G. and Da Bulldogs, is a hip-hop group from Boston, Massachusetts. Its members have included Ed O.G., T-Nyne, Game (formerly Smooth Ice Gee), DJ Cruz, Black, Bulletproof Brett, Mr. Muff, Slim Dog, Shawn Booker, Lorenzo, Bruzer, Mo, Tyrone, Money 1, K. Diamond, Dream Nefra, and Joe. Most of these performers are referenced on the song "Feel Like A Nut" on the album Life of a Kid in the Ghetto. T-Nyne and DJ Cruz were originally from the group Fresh to Impress / FTI Crew (DJ Cruz, Jizzy Blow, Slick Rick, and Spoonie T), which merged with Ed O.G. to form Ed O.G. and Da Bulldogs.
Ed O.G and Da Bulldogs was signed to Mercury Records until 1993, at which point the members pursued separate music careers.
Da Bulldogs released a 12" single in February 2001 called "Bounce It/Livin' It Up". This was followed by a CD in 2003 called Almost Famous. The single was distributed by Landspeed Records during their bankruptcy, but went into a second round of domestic and overseas distribution. Almost Famous was distributed on Da Bulldogs' independent hip-hop label Needlepoint Entertainment, and featured T-Nyne, Game, Bulletproof Brett, and Edo G. The promotional 12" single "Livin' It Up" was distributed at a Ja Rule performance before his release of the same name and was performed live by Bell Biv Devoe. It was played on Jam'n 94.5 WJMN (FM) by G Spin.
