Snoop Dogg ~ Paid Tha Cost To Be Da Boss


Despite the middling quality of his previous two albums, Snoop Dogg's sixth full-length effort firmly places this "professor of G-ology" back on top of the game. Snoop comes off surprisingly spry on Paid tha Cost, offering one of his best-balanced albums in years. His pimpalistic style is still draped in silk and fur, especially on "Bo$$ Playa," "Suited 'n' Booted," and "Ballin'." But "I Believe in You" is an unexpectedly sensitive, irony-free love ballad, while Snoop's pairings with the Neptunes and Gang Starr's DJ Premier result in two of his hardest hitting cuts ever, "From tha Chuuuch to da Palace" and "The One and Only" respectively. Combine this with his unfettered attack on Suge Knight ("Pimp Slapp'd") and this is a Snoop Dogg charging forward rather than lazily leaning back. Taking the helm at the dawn of the new decade, this old Dogg still has some new tricks. --Oliver Wang

Snoop has changed up his style quiet a bit since his last meal. In this album, Snoop does not have the young thugged out gangsta house party style he had with Death Row. Nor does he have the little older, revenging gangsta, hoe hating style when he was with No Limit. Snoop Dogg reinvented himself once more. This time his the pimp man, who spits his rhyme slowly and enjoy what his doing on the microphone. Party stlye, the song that he did with uncle charlie wilson that appeared on the OLd School is a very good example. Relaxed style instead of the Gangsta who can't go to sleep with his gun tucked under his belt. However, Snoop does reminice and rap with the Gangsta's perspective on a few songs. He is using several different perspectives throughout the whole album, Pimp, Boss, Gangsta, Sensitive man, and superhero. No matter how much Snoop changes, his lyrics and delivery is always the same and that is good. Beat sounds quite different from last album too, Neptune took charge with some of the beats, and it sounds pretty nice. More rappers needs to start reinvent themselves instead of the old GANG Killing, Chains, Ice, Rims and stuff like that.

When I bought Doggystyle back in 97, I was completely blown away at the talent of this man and his flow is silky smooth yet so powerful. I have followed his career ever since then, watching him turn from gangsta (Doggystyle) to sell-out (The Game is to be Sold Not to be Told) to pop (pretty much everything else) and now he's finally back at the level he wants and deserves. This album is definitely the Snoop he wanted to be, and you can tell that he had fun making this album (there are really random lines like "I'm the boss, heiroglyphically speaking... or is 'generally' speaking?"). There is also a lighter sense in his voice, like 10 years of burdens lifted off his shoulders as he now raps with the freedom of his own label, pace, and cost. There is only one song that's bad (but I'm not sure which one, because I only listen to this in my car, so I when I hear it start, I skip it. I think it's 16 or 17). Oh, and Dre is missing. Other than that, this album is perfect. "One and Only" is my favorite song. I dare say "Pimp Slapp'd" is pretty bold, dissing Suge Knight and Kurupt (and I think Xzibit, too, but I wouldn't know why). Anyway, the way I see it, Snoop really has paid the cost to be the boss.

I got this for christmas last year, the first listen only a couple of songs caught my ear. I didn't really liked the first single and still don't but many other songs has grown on me though. At first listen what I liked was especially "The One and Only" produced by DJ Premier. I also thought Beautiful and Snoop's version of Paid In Full was tight. And the song featuring Ludacris and from Long Beach To Brick City with Redman. But the rest though, I didn't really care much for, but now over a year later it has grown on me and I even think it's on of his better albums. Snoop has really had an up and down career. Doggystyle is one of the best albums ever, Tha Doggfather is one the most dissapointin albums ever (but still pretty good), I don't even need to mention "Da Game.." , Top Dogg was aiight and so on.
I actually put this as his third best I guess.
Buy this if you're a Snoop fan or a rap fan, just buy Doggystyle first. This records might not affect you the first listen, but give it a few spins before judging it.
The song "Batman & Robin" though, might be the worst Snooop song I ever heard!
Just get it. It's worth the money. 3.75 stars.
