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 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. But it definetly has the *biggest* funk influence of any of his albums.
This album has BEATS like no other rap album I've ever heard. It's not gangsta rap, it's just old school with a new school influence. I've always like the radio hits by snoop, but this is the only album where I've enjoyed the other songs, and I enjoy almost every one on this album.
P.S., if you have any bump in your ride, this album WILL hit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad... Jan. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
lots of people compare this album to doggystyle, which is unfair. Doggystyle will never be beat. I think this is his third best album (doggystyle & tha last meal are better). there are some really good songs on dis album like:
-Vapors
-snoops upside ya head
-snoop bounce
This album is definatley worth having. wateva u do, dont buy "paid the cost to be the boss" or "the game is to be sold not told" becuz they r snoops worst.

4.0 out of 5 stars SNOOPS SECOND BEST ALBUM. Dec 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
I dont really listen to rap or modern hip hop,but I do like some old school rap.In my opinion this is snoops second best album next to the classic doggystyle.All of snoops later albums have slowly deteriorated and been too trendy.Mostly all the songs on this album are good with some really catchy beats.His rhymes sound pretty good and the production is pretty good.His new album is nothing compared to this classic album.

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.
