Doggystyle – Snoop Dogg – 8.8


Snoop Dogg’s 1993 debut album Doggystyle is the ultimate ‘bitches and hoes’ type of rap album. It is an infectious and hella fun party album fantasises in smoking ganja, drinking all night and fucking many many bitches. This album blasts Snoop’s charisma and confidence on the mic non stop from beginning to end. His laid back delivery on tracks like Lodi Dodi are kinda hypnotic, especially with the incredibly wavey production. It’s tracks like this you can hear the Dr Dre influence and how Doggystyle and The Chronic are so intertwined. It’s no surprise both these albums were considered two of the most important West Coast albums of all time. This album is just hit after hit with some of the biggest tracks from the ’90s like Gin and Juice and Who Am I. It’s hard to think about the rest of Snoop’s discography, because with the release of Doggystyle he created a huge mountain for himself to overcome to come up with something better than his debut. But listening to this album is filled with such good vibes and ‘gangsta shit’ it’s hard not to love this album, and consider it as one of the best rap albums of the ’90s and a G-Funk pioneer. So don’t forget, Snoop Dogg is the name, Dogg Pound’s tha game.
