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).
The group released one album and single in 2000. The album, Pleezbaleevit! charted at #7 on Billboard’s Top independent albums chart, and #35 on the Top R&B/Hip-hop albums chart. The single “Baby if You’re Ready” ascended to #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-hop songs.
The release of their debut album inspired a lawsuit by Columbia Pictures, who claimed infringement against the Charlie’s Angels franchise.The band was renamed “Tha Angels”, but in spite of the success of their initial release produced no other albums before disbanding in 2002. 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.
