Snoop Dogg ~ Dead Man Walkin
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

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.Read more ›
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.
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.

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 morePublished on Dec 10 2001
