Doggy's Angels was a rap trio formed by Snoop Dogg on the "Doggy Style" subsidiary of TVT Records. Members are Big Chan (Chan Gaines), Coniyac (Kim Proby) and Kola Loc (Kola Marion).[1]

The group released one album and single in 2000. The album, Pleezbaleevit! charted at #7 on Billboard's Top independent albums chart, #8 on the Heatseekers chart and #35 on the Top R&B/Hip-hop albums chart.[2] The single "Baby if You're Ready" ascended to #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-hop songs.[3]

Biography[edit]

Legal problems[edit]

The release of their debut album inspired a lawsuit by Columbia Pictures, who claimed infringement against the Charlie's Angels franchise.[4] The band was renamed "Tha Angels", but in spite of the success of their initial release produced no other albums before disbanding in 2002.[1] In 2005, Chan Gaines sued the label for $100 million in royalties for her performances in the band; the suit was settled on March 24, 2006.[1]
