After 1993's classic, "Doggystyle", Snoop Dogg suffered the dreaded sophmore jinx! Like so many before him; Jay-Z, Nas, Big Daddy Kane, just to name a few, he released a classic first album creating great anticipation for his next release, only to flop the second time around. "The Doggfather" was a very average album, Snoop was suffering without the contsistantly bangin' production of Dr Dre. In an attempt to save his career Snoop jumped into Master P's tank. His first No Limit Records release, "Da Game Is To Be Sold, Not To Be Told", saw Snoop return to the top with the album going 4 X platinum. Despite this fans were not totally satisfied with the combination of Snoop and the Beats By The Pound sound. So for his latest release, the Doggy Dogg has taken it back to the west coast. He has reunited with Dr Dre who contributed three tracks, including the thumpin' single "B**** Please" featuring Xzibit who steals the show with an amazing first verse. Snoop has also enlisted the slick production of DJ Quik to go alongside his Dogghouse Records producer Meech Wells. Don't worry though, Snoop has not forgot about his No Limit fam, Fiend and Mystikal join the party and rip up the track "Ghetto Symphony", a remake of Marley Marl's classic posse cut. If you try to forget the lazy tracks "Something 'Bout Ya Bidness" and "Down 4 My" you can consider this to be Snoop Dogg at his best.
