Product Description

Amazon.ca

Comprised of 12 tracks pulled from the Death Row Records rubble, this is the album that Snoop Dogg doesn't want you to hear. Why? Because these songs come straight from the studio floor. Disrespectfully titled Dead Man Walking by imprisoned Death Row president Suge Knight, the album hashes together unreleased and early versions of cuts from Snoop's Doggfather and No Limit Top Dog eras. "Head Doctor" features uncredited guest vocals from Raphael Saadiq and Tha Dogg Pound make saving appearances on the keyboard- and snare-driven "Tommy Boy" and "Cee Walkin'." The slow dragging funk of "Too Black" offers a hypnotic jazz feel. But the album's best offering is "Change Gone Come," with its eerie synthesizers and rippling bass line. If you want everything Snoop this ain't bad. But for the nonfanatic, there just isn't enough cream in this crop. --Kenji Jasper

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of The G July 10 2001
Format:Audio CD
I guess you could call me a hardcore Snoop fan. I have all his albums and singles and most of his collaborations( not all of em though as there are too many). But i must admit I thought he had totally fallen off after Da Game is To be Sold Not Told. I was like it cant be. The same man who brought us Nothin but A G Thang, and Doggystyle? Disappearing. But then luckily Snoop reemerged from being knocked out,and fought back. Releasin Top Dogg which got mixed feelings. I thought could it be the return of the g? obviously yes as he commenced to appear on Chronic 2001 and dropping Tha Eastsidaz joint in 99/2000. then the Up in Smoke Tour and The Last Meal was released and I relaxed a littled. I was like Whoa Snoop is almost there in his return. then this dropped... Why some of these songs werent released on Doggfather, his 96 lp, is beyond me. If they were that album wouldve been much better. But it is definitely a return to his old self. Songs like May I and Head Doctor sound like they would be in place on doggystyle. Other noteworthy songs include Hit Rocks, Tommy boy, Change Gone Come., Gangsta Walk. Too Black is one of his best slow flow songs. County blues sports an old Western type of beat from the movies and hits really well. I will Survive could have the best beat on the album by Soopafly. The only lackluster song is My favorite color which is just total wackness. Me and My doggs ends the album perfectly. All in all this is some of Snoops best work. His flow is there, the beats bangin, the lyrics are on point. So by all means pick this up It will not be a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic album, brings back golden memories. Feb. 26 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album brings back the old Snoop Doggy Dogg we all love. Death Row decided to make an album of some old Snoop tracks, and some tracks from Snoop's classic Smokefest Underground album. This is Snoop's best work since The Doggfather easily, it brings back the way rap used to be, and Dr. Dre doesn't produce anything here. Most of the production is handled by Soopafly, Above The Law rapper Big Hutch, and Daz Dillinger. Also, Swoop G, Daz Dillinger, Kurupt and Raphael Saadiq appear on this album. Snoop uses energy I haven't heard from him since 1999, but this CD could definitely be called Doggystyle Part II. I think it's unfair how there are Snoop groupies here dissing this album just because Snoop isn't getting paid for it. It's the music, not what Suge Knight did. Though I'm sure Snoop didn't want this to come out, as the album is even disrespectfully titled as Dead Man Walking. But you'll get the light-hearted, bright G-Funk sounds on this CD we've missed.
The album starts off with a classic track, "May I". This track has beautiful horns and Snoop puts in an energetic performance. This track wouldn't be out of place on Doggystyle, an amazing Soopafly track, probably recorded some time in 1993. "C-Walkin'" is a decent track from Smokefest with Snoop putting in three good verses and dissing Swoop G and Lil' C-Style in the last verse (though he doesn't say their names), with a decent beat that gets better as the song goes on. "Head Doctor" features Swoop G and Raphael Saadiq for the first single on this 1994 track. The beat is full of life, and Snoop and Swoop sound good together. "Hit Rocks" is another great track, the original version of "Bussin' Rocks" from Top Dogg.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm surprised at the quality!! Nov. 5 2000
Format:Audio CD
When i first heard that Death Row would be releasing "Dead Man Walkin" i thought right away that it would be nothing more than an album full of wack songs to lower Snoop's image--
But to my own surprise, the album ended up being one of my best purcheses this year! Dead Man Walkin is an album of unreleased Snoop Dogg material from his Death Row era, which is considered his golden era. Ever since Snoop left Death Row for No Limit, alot of his fans we're left with nothing more than Southern Rap and very few West Coast cuts on his albums, which left them wanting more. This album is what those fans want, the old Snoop Dogg. Most of the songs on this album are great, even though some of them aren't so great you can still listen to them.
Its hard to say which album will be better: Dead Man Walkin' or the soon to be released, Tha Last Meal. I for one am getting both, if you really can't have both, just look at the reviews Tha Last Meal will receive when its released and compare them to Dead Man Walkin'.
By the way, all Snoop Dogg fans be sure to check out "The Restless LP" by Xzibit which is set to drop December 12th. Peace Out.

I just got this CD NEW at midnight tonight. It comes with a cool cardboard cover with a picture of Snoop Dogg on it to go over your jewel case - very nice extra. I wish more CD's would do this, especially 2Pac's new once (collectable). (Point of reference) Doggystyle - 5/5 Mics Doggfather - 3.5 / 5 Mics
Dead Man Walkin - 4/5 Mics (in relation)
This CD is the tightest Snoop album to drop since Doggystyle. It *almost* matches it but due to 1 or 2 lousy tracks, it loses a mic. Track # 8 stands out by far, which was produced by Daz and is by far the tighest of them all. They rap over 2Pac's "Homeboyz" beat and Kurupt tears the whole track up, sort of making it seem like Kurupt (feat. Snoop Dogg). Track #4 is also off the hook, along with 1,2, and 3 and the rest of the CD. There are only about 3 wack songs on the CD which were obviously space fillers and originally Snoop Dogg rejects, but those are overlooked from the hardcore oldstyle of Snoop *Doggy* Dogg songs that the rest of the CD has to offer.
Everyone needs to pick this CD up, all the good West Coast Gangsta rap CD's drop in the winter, remember.
Oct/Nov/Dec 99 we got:
2Pac Kurupt Dre
Oct/Nov/Dec 00 we get:
2Pac (coming soon) Snoop (excellent) Too Gangsta for Radio (very good) Kurupt Shade Sheist

The content of this album is probably on a par with 'Tha Doggfather' and the style is very similar. Track 12 is on 'Tha Doggfather', so I don't know what it's doing here. Read more
