|Against the Grain|
|Studio album by|
|Released||August 23, 2005|
Against the Grain is the fourth studio album by American rapper Kurupt and his first on Death Row Records as a solo artist. Kurupt signed back onto Death Row Records, except as a solo artist in 2002. The album was supposed to be released in 2004, but was delayed. It was finally released in August 2005. It was critical because it was Death Row's first freshly recorded album in over 4 years. Unfortunately, the album went almost unnoticed due to the lack of promotion by Koch Records, which currently distributes all of Death Row's albums. Furthermore, Death Row encouraged fans to not purchase this album because the tracklist was altered.
Certain tracks were removed and others added. The cut tracks were later released on a bootleg compilation titled Against tha Grain E.P.. The track "Calico" featuring The Dayton Family was also on their album Family Feud.
The album peaked at number 60 on the Billboard 200 on September 2005.
