Product Description

Amazon.ca

After a blistering performance on Dr Dre's The Chronic, Snoop Doggy Dogg was the rap world's hottest property. His debut, Doggystyle, was the first hip-hop album to enter the Billboard chart at number one. When faced with the prospect of creating a second album without the help of Dre, who had lovingly crafted G-funk beats around his subtly menacing flow, he turned to respected LA producer DJ Pooh, who created some catchy beats, but failed to approach the greatness of Doggystyle. Some of Pooh's overbearing gangsta beats sit uneasily with Snoop's sophisticated rap style, and his raps generally lack their usual focus and sparkle. Notable exceptions include "Snoop's Upside Ya Head" and "Vapors", which sees Snoop at his flamboyant best, backed up by a lazily seductive funk beat. Most tellingly, his red-hot freestyle on the sparsely-produced "Sixx Minutes" proves that when left alone, Snoop can still deliver the goods. --Chris Elwell-Sutton

If you are expecting another Doggystyle, than youre in for a big shock. This was definitely a different Snoop than what we saw in late '93. His close friend Tupac just died, his mentor Dr. Dre had left, and Death Row was crumbling right in front of his very eyes. You can't really expect anything better from him than this cd. I actually think it is pretty good. Though Dre's production would've helped a lot, Daz and DJ Pooh do just fine here and give us what I think are some pretty good beats and hooks. A couple of things that this album suffers from are the fact that there are just little bit too many skits and intros. I also would have enjoyed it better if there were more guest appearances by other inmates, especially Tha Dogg Pound. (There are only 3 songs here where The DPG apply some vocals.) The last negative thing about this album is that about each track starts off good, but in a handfull of the songs on here, after the 3rd minute or so, they are just getting old. I don't know if its the lyrics or just lack of excellent production, but about half of the songs have that effect on me. This is a good album, though, with the best tracks being "Snoop's Upside Ya Head," "Up Jump Tha Boogie," "Snoop Bounce," "2001," "Groupie," and "Blueberry." The title track is not bad either. There is sort of a funky vibe throughout the whole ablum, which I think helps to complement Snoop's rapping style. This is Snoop's 2nd best cd, under the infamous "Doggystyle." If you are a fan of Snoop or Death Row, I would reccomend this lp.

This album really disappointed me when it first came out back in late 1996. But looked at in hindsight, I see that it is a solid, fonky gangsta rap effort from a young ghetto cat who was still strugglin' with his overnight iconic status. Thas' the best way to approach it. In the past, his sassy style was backed up by Dre's patented blunted an' whiny G-Funk sound, so all Snoop hadda do was flow smoothly an' ride the beat. But by the middle'a '96, Dre had left Death Row an' wasn't associatin' with any of his former collaboraters, so now Snoop, for the first time, hadda rely on himself. An' considerin' the notoriety Snoop had gained over the three years between his debut an' 'Tha Doggfather', including most of all the infamous murder case he an' his bodyguard where on trial for through mos'a the year, it was prob'ly ten times as hard. Now when you take all that into consideration, the results of this album are pretty impressive to me.
It opens up with an intro that is basically a myriad of snippets from news reports talkin' 'bout the negative image Snoop's music was supposedly portrayin' for America's youth as well as the ongoing murder case he was in the middle of. After Snoop speaks shortly an' defiantly at them, a slick an' modern beat begins bumpin' an' the straight-up GANGSTA title track comes in; this joint makes today's hardest hip-hop look soft, as does 'Up Jump tha Boogie' featuring Kurupt, a true West Coast head nodder supplied by DJ Pooh that should get any heads goin'. The freestyle conversation that follows, in spite of'a brave shot Snoop takes at Dre, is weak an' uninspired, but it gets made up for with the Roger and Zapp-sampled 'Snoop Bounce', which like mos'a the hot tracks, is a nicely-done West Coast track in retrospect.

3.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Keep A Snoop Dogg Down! Oct. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
While viewed as somewhat of a dissapointing follow-up to his massive mega-hit debut album, "Doggystyle" when it was first released, "Doggfather", Snoop Doggy Dogg's sophomore album seems a lot better in retrospect. Despite the abscene of his production mentor, Dr. Dre and his deceased comrade, Tupac Shakur, Snoop's ryhmes of survival pack a punch on this album.
Opening with the title cut, Snoop seems happy, fresh off beating his much-publicized murder case though somber at some points of the Shakur killing. Tracks like "Snoop's Upside Ya Head", "Vapors", and "Groupie" are fun party-oriented jams as opposed to the demonic story-telling of his past on such hits as "Murder Was The Case" and "Serial Killa". Snoop is not as caught up in his world of gangstas and guns as he once was.
"Tha Doggfather" is no "Doggystyle" but it certainly has its moments. Snoop the artist is as as good as gold here but without the beats from Dre and a few other factors, this one just isn't as memorable. Compared with the Snoop of today, this one is certainly superior though.

In the wake of a murder trial, the signing of 2Pac to the Row, and Dre breaking from the Row, Tha Doggfather was released. It was in this transitional and unstable time that Snoop emerged as a layered and real artist. It was during this time that people were wondering if rap was fad or fact. It was during this time that Pac and Biggie were the dons of the game. It was during this time that Snoop released his highly anticipated and strangely addictive album: Tha Doggfather.
A lot of people underrate this album as Snoop's weakest, or even Death Row's weakest album. F ***'em. This album was the last realest Snoop, the Dogg before releasing pop hits like "Beautiful". Just hear me out here, and I'll tell you the truth about this album.
Snoop turns from BG to OG in this album. As much as Snoop would argue against it, he was Dr. Dre's little homey in the Chronic and a little bit even in Doggystyle. This is the effort where Snoop for good or bad breaks with Dre. When you first hear this album it is utterly unremarkable. It's a disappointment. However, it's one of those albums that gets better and better with each time you pop it in.
The CD is a straight through listen. Pop it in and put the remote down. From the innovative opening to the gangsta party, it's hot. There aren't any signature tracks on here, like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Art of War. What the album does have is a pack of great rap songs! There are no bad songs on this. While I like some better than others, there are no ridiculous tracks.
Tha Doggfather is an album not to be discussed as a track by track effort but as one great experience. Snoop fills out his identity here. What he becomes is one smooth rapper. The songs are slick, not lacking humor, and strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, very fun album, somewhat experimental for Snoop
This album doesn't fit into the mold of the successful Snoop albums, which is probably why it didn't enjoy the success of some of his other efforts. Read more

This album is the successful follow up to Doggystyle and though not as good as its predecessor in its own right it is a great hip hop album.
