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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

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 morePublished on Jan. 19 2004 by R. W. Devries
