Product Description

Product Description


The first voice you hear on the new Snoop record is that of Master P, introducing the latest recruit to the No Limit army. It's a message, albeit a subtle one: in the team game of hip-hop, there's been a trade, and our man P gained the advantage. Da Game... is Snoop's first release on the label, and it is a No Limit release through and through--in spite of the fact that, in the context of No Limit's marketing megalopoly, Snoop's Merlot mixes poorly with the rest of the crew's Asti Spumanti. Fortunately, his flow has always been blessed with a Southern swing, and the Beats by the Pound gumbo funk is a natural for the Doggfather, even if there's little on the album that pushes the creative envelope. As for Snoop himself, he spends ample time attempting to evoke previous glories with the uninspired "Gin & Juice II" and "Still a G Thang," though his strongest moments come with Mia X on "Slow Down" and with Mystikal and C-Murder on "See Ya When I Get There," both classic No Limit material. --Jon Caramanica

3.0 out of 5 stars Its allright, but not snoops best Sept. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
this album was really bad the first time i listend to it, but its pretty decent now. i think the best song on here is "Hoes money and clout" this song is just all snoop dogg no no limit soldiers to mess it up, which is basically what this album is about. Snoop really is a talent but the others subtract from his flow. Especially fiend, mysitkal, and silk the shocker. But there are some good songs on here from snoop, and beats by the pound arent too bad. Doggz gonna get ya is a good snoop song about his drug dealing days. Snoop world is defintily a good way to start the album with a flashy beat and will haev you hitting repeat. i also was impressed with slow down, featuring mia x, this song has some good base and snoop and mia seem to flow pretty well. woof is pretty good too, but fiend and mystikal really bring it down. despite master p's uhhhs i think whatcha gon do is a good song too. snoop masters his flow on here. Ain nuttin personal has a good beat, too bad silk the shcoker is on it. i really like dp gangsta too cause snoop just seems to steal it, although its a carbon copy of nwa's gansta gangsta. overall this album has some good songs on it but its not a classic by any means. if you have an open mind and respect snoop youll like it though. no limit just seems to bring down snoop, its alayws like you are ready to turn the track off then you hear snoop and decide its allright. not recommed to non-snoop fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars suprisingly not bad Dec 21 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Straight to it, this cd wasn't that bad after all..i was expecting worse, since everybody said no limit stinks when it comes 2 rap..which most of the time it does..but obviously Snoop had enough Doggy in him to keep himself on top. I would say that about half the tracks on this album are good. There are three tracks that are great tracks to play over and over. Woof, Tru Tank Doggs, Still a G thing, and Gin n Juice 2. Even though the remakes to the classics aren't as good and aren't going to be classics, they are still good, and at least going to remind you of the real snoop doggy dogg (he is ALWAYS doggy dogg), when him and dre were in the booth together.
Unlike his previous album, this album has more upbeat tracks. Woof! is probably the best album on this cd, with fiend and mystikal featured, both with voices that will keep you awake. On this song you can really tell the difference between Snoop and No Limit, and personaly, i like the mix. There are several slow songs on this album, which in my opinion are quite good, espiacially Slow Down.
-upbeat tracks
-three or four very good tracks
-a lot of "fill in" tracks
-no west coast rappers (Dre, Kurupt, Daz, etc..)
-Snoop sounds different (and i don't like it!!)
ALSO, why'd he get rid of Doggy!!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT THAT BAD, REALLY!!! July 18 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Personally I think people dissed D.O.G.Gizze for this album. I feel it was slighty rushed like most No Limit releases. Snoop signed offcially to No Limit in March 1998 and the album was released in August 1998. I feel if u gonna make a hot album then u need at least 7-9 months. Snoop gangsta era died and this album is proof. Now I have expressed my negative thoughts of this album overall it is more than likely the best album of 1998 released through No Limit/Priority Records. Songs such as Still A G Thang, Game of Life and DP Gangsta r the hottest 'thugged' tracks on the album. This album is too close to call. It is very similar to Tha Doggfather (on the same level) this is not Snoops best due to associating with new artists like C-Murder and Silkk The Shocker and KLC, Craig B and The rest of The Beats By The Pound Clique and it may have taken time to adjust to working with them, as he always had a beautiful musical relationship wit Dre, Dogg Pound and 2 Pac and this is a big step down workin wit Master P brothers and average rappers, this did not bring the best out of Snoop as Pac, DPG AND Dre always brought the best out of him, it shows No Limit Records could not even be like Death Row Records which brought the best out of Snoopy. This is Snoops weakest album out of all 5 offcial Snoop supported releases. He needed to do better and he did wit No Limit Top Dogg. But in Conclusion this album proved Snoop gangsta era was over and people who thought he could one day release an album on the same level as Doggystyle were proved very wrong

2.0 out of 5 stars Abomination Sept. 24 2001
Format:Audio CD
This Is BY FAR Snoop's WORST album. Coming from a Hardcore Snoop Fan (me) this album is not worth your time or money; however if you see it in the used section definitely pick it up quickly. This is the album where people labeled Snoop a sellout, Studio Gangsta and just plain wack rapper who fell off. I highly disagree with these views but after listening to this album his future as a rapper looked really short. Fortunately he stormed back but anyway Out of 21 songs there is probably 5 or 6 worth listening to. The other songs cant even be considered filler just wackness.
Songs To Listen to: Slow Down, Woof, Hustle & Ball, Tru Tank Dogs, Still A G Thang, 20 Dollars to my name. If youre not listening to this open minded the only song youll like is Still A G THang to be honest.
Songs NOT to Listen To: rest of the album
The beats and production dont mesh well with Snoops laid back flow and all the sound effects really drown out Snoops voice. All in All this is only for Snoop's hardcore loyal fans and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone else.
