5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Classic Loaded With Real Classics
Since featuring The Dramatics on his historic debut LP 'Doggystyle', Snoop has always demonstrated a real passion for classic black soul and funk music which pervades even his most menacing or mainstream releases.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do The Knowledge
Snoop's new lp is a solid record and im not even a huge snoop fan. I read the comment about the weak Teddy Riley beats, even though you have the right's to your opinion i beg to differ. Teddy's Beats are serious and above par with most of todays producers by far. Do your knowlege B. Best tracks: SD is out, gangsta like me, sexual eruption, waste of time, cool, deez...

This review is from: Ego Trippin' (Audio CD)
Since featuring The Dramatics on his historic debut LP 'Doggystyle', Snoop has always demonstrated a real passion for classic black soul and funk music which pervades even his most menacing or mainstream releases.

His albums often feature at least one or two tracks which develop classic 70's themes, either lifting samples or full instrumentation, through to featuring the likes of George Clinton, Stevie Wonder or the Bee Gees.

Follow his career closely across more understated album tracks and through collaborative work with Nate Dogg such as their 213 group album and you'll instantly recognise Snoop's ear for good, classic, soulful or funk music.

These intelligent musical influences have long deserved a full outing amid Snoop's increasingly guest-laden albums which attempt to appeal to every demographic in rap and beyond at the expense of any personal focus.

Ego Trippin' finally seems to follow Snoop's own artistic direction and is therefore innevitably his most musical and most personal album to date - and not just due to the absence of features (just 3 of 20 tracks).

Gone are collaborations with every platinum rap artist out there, gone are production credits that read like a who's who, gone even is planned work with Bono, Madonna and Mick Jagger - a measure of his solo intentions.

Instead we're treated to Snoop's own passion for music, inspired by the 80's and 90's swing of Teddy Riley through to the 70's and 80's soul of the Gap Band and Charlie Wilson, littered with classic music in between.

It's a musical resurrection for rap at a time when the genre has retreated underground, suffocated by a mainstream spotlight on 50 Cent's monotonous grumbling, Kayne West's quasi-pop, and Soulja Boy-esque crunk posturing.

The rap mainstream has never sounded more tired, and, 15 years after Snoop last kick-started a new dawn for the genre, the veteran has gone back to basics to produce a mature CD which can restore rap's musical credibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogg On Form, 27 April 2008

This review is from: Ego Trippin' (Audio CD)
Snoop makes albums which are to be listened to in their entirety.

A superb mixture of trademark 'Dogg, and some real soul and r'n'b joints thrown into the mix.

Like Snoop, love this. He just keeps on getting better.

2.0 out of 5 stars really really poor, 1 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ego Trippin' (Audio CD)
Snoop dogg's 9th studio album is also probably his worse to date..i've never heard such rubbish thats passing itself off as decent hip hop as whats on this album. It has 2 or 3 good tracks which the single sexual seduction is one but the beats are bland and uninpired. The Teddy riley produced tracks are some of the weakest on here..ted used to be a killer producer back in the 80's and 90's but hois tracks here are really weak. Thing is snopp has always had to rely on top producers but this album just doesnt have many. The neptunes prod oone of the better tracks "sets up" and the bonus track "nobody better" flips the aint nobody sample originally for one and is cool. Tracks like "neva have to worry" "let it out" "gangsta like me" (there are more!) are the kinda of bland 50 cent tracks he has on his albums..terrible beats..thats the prob here..theres just too much dross and at 22 tracks deep this is an example of quantity over quality. Terrible album..one of hip hops major diappointments of 2008! for good hip hop check out lupe fiascos album or the new pete rock..leave this alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not usually a fan..., 19 Mar 2008
By 
Not usually a fan but this album is really good. Big fan of the Charlie Wilson track at the end which is 2pac - changes remix style. The t-pain track is wicked too.

Simply buy it...you won't regret it

2.0 out of 5 stars SAVE RAP, GO AND BUY A GOOD RAP ALBUM NOT THIS SHIZZITLE, 20 April 2008
This review is from: Ego Trippin' (Audio CD)
Ironically Snoop was one of the best when he was rapping about 187 on an undercover cop (Deep Cover Soundtrack) on the first Chronic with Dre and Doggystyle. And now he's not one of the best because all he does is talk about himself, in a way that isn't even witty.

Rap has a long tradition of bragging and "mine's bigger than yours you're momma said so" rhymes, but it must be done with HUMOR and CLEVERLEY to make your shocked or laugh when it's done right. Where is Snoops talent? He tries ot make up for it by a surprising selection of musical styles which would be hot if only he dropped some 5 star lyrical delivery over them. Here you just get weak boring self centred rubbish about how important Snoop is and how large he is, which if he was such a superstar he wouldn't brag about it. It really doesn't fascinate me when he's regurgitating stuff Jay-z bragged about like 5 years ago, and said it way slicker and sharper. The only thing right here is the ablum name EGO TRIPPIN.
