"New York, New York" is a single from West Coast hip hop duo Tha Dogg Pound's first album, Dogg Food. It features Kurupt rapping the verses, with Daz Dillinger with a few quick verses in the video and Snoop Dogg in the chorus. The song is intended to slight the credibility of the East Coast hip hop scene during the rivalry between the East and West. In the video Tha Dogg Pound members are rapping around the Skyscrapers in New York. DJ Pooh produced the song and it never charted. In response to this song East Coast duos Capone-N-Noreaga and Mobb Deep collaborated with Tragedy Khadafi to release a response song named "L.A L.A" dissing Dogg Pound members. This song also uses a sample of Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five's song with the same title. It is also considered being a jab at the Notorious B.I.G. because of the use of a similar beat to Notorious B.I.G's St. Ides TV ad.[1] However, Kurupt stated that DJ Pooh gave the Notorious B.I.G. the instrumental originally for the St. Ides commercial.[2]
