BBC Review

Given the mediocre quality of his previous albums, most people had given up on ole Snoop ever finding his way back to the top dogg position. That is until now. With his 6th album, the Professor of G-ology is back in true form.

The first album to be released on his Doggystyle label, Snoop D-O Double Gizzle is wasting no time in stating his position; as head honcho, he's commanding respect. He's put down the joint and stepped to the mic; delivering a well- balanced album that includes soulful melodies, head banging beats and a welcome return to that 70s funk influence which compliments his West Coast lazy drawl so well.

With his newly acquired freedom from No Limit, the lanky Long Beach rapper has certainly done his homework and enlisted a roster of heavyweight producers; Neptunes, (yes, them again!) DJ Premier, Hi Tek, Fredwreck and Just Blaze.

The first single "From the Chuuch to Da Palace" proves Snoop's still got that bark. It's infectious, if somewhat repetitive,featuring the standard Neptunes sound all the way. Another head nodder has got to be the Premier produced: "The One and Only." It's classic east coast flava, equipped with the right scratches and breakbeats.

The album features eleven guest appearances from, Ludacris, Pharrell Williams, Redman, Charlie Wilson and others. The more noticeabletracks are the intoxicating flutedriven "Lollipop" with Nate Dogg and Jay Z and the quirky "Batman and Robin" with Lady of Rage.

Snoop'strademark Gangsta-meets-Pimp style is ever present but with a difference. Are we seeing a more mature reflective and sensitive side of Snoop with tracks like "I Miss that Bitch" (hmmm) and the soulful "I Believe in You" featuring Latoiya Williams? Here the soothing piano keys compliment her soft vocals. However he still "keeps it gangsta" with his diss track; "Pimp Slappd" when he responds to Suge Knights taunts.

Although not on the same par as the classic "Doggystyle", if one album can catapult him back on top of his game this has got to be it! Snoop fans will no doubt be rejoicing and those of you who thought Mr Broadus would never cut it without the assistance of the almighty Dre need to think again. After a decade in the game, It would appear an old Dogg can still learn new tricks! --Buki Bakare

I am a huge Snoop Dogg fan and i have nearly all his albums except the mediocre 'The Game is to be Told not to be Sold' Snoop Dogg has proved he is still one of the Top Doggs from this album There is some funky tunes and the lyrics are very good.Snoop is the man and i can't wait for 213

Yes, Snoop's back with yet another great album, The intro is quite bad but once you get to the 3rd song "Stoplight" you know that this is going to be yet another great album. "From Tha Chuuch to the Palace" is one of the best soundtracks on the album, a must listen, featuring the "NEPTUNES", the other great soundtrack of course is "Beautiful" featuring "Pharell" from the "NEPTUNES". Snoop shows that he's still in the rap game with his new album, "Paid tha cost to be da bo$$". He continues to rap in his gangstar accent making his voice unique. If you like rap, hip-hop and rn'b then you'll definitely enjoy this album.

Paid the cost to be da Bo$$, Snoops new album is a typically laid back Snoop Album perfect for chilling to.
Highlights from the album include, From tha Chuuuch to da Palace, Snoops latest single which is really funky with some House type beats; I believe in you, as close as Snoop gets to a love song, kinda cheesy but with a cool flow; Ballin, which sounds like a bizarre jazz tune.
The Neptunes influence on the album is easy to hear and it works quite well with Snoops style.
There's a special mention for Simon a.k.a. Suge Knight (Deathrow / Tha Row fame) on Pimp Slapp'd where Snoop deals with the dissing coming from Suge and the alleged Xzibit betrayal (apparently Suge saw Xzibit in a club and asked him about Snoop and Xzibit said he wasn't down with Snoop he was just "a guy I rap with")
Some people might think the album is a bit self indulgent and songs like Suited N Booted, Bo$$ Playa etc. emphasise this as they sound more like adverts for being a G than anything else but I kinda like that.
Overall, it's a good album and if your a Snoop fan you'll enjoy it. If you are not that familiar with Snoop and have never bought a Snoop Album before it's not a bad place to start but be warned it's not quite as accessible as Dr Dre or Eminem.

If you have heard or have recently aquired Doggystyle and saw this album, do not expect it to be anywhere near the same, if you are one of those people, you will automatically not really like the music, but after listening to it for about 20mins you start to get used to it and then like it and then love it, it is a really good album with the best tracks being: from tha Chuuch to da Palace, P*mp Slapped and Suited and Booted, actually almost all of them are good!!!
