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.
