The World's Undying Affinity With Snoop Dogg

    
The World's Undying Affinity With Snoop Dogg

The World's Undying Affinity With Snoop Dogg??

Who is the coolest rapper of all time? LL Cool J? Perhaps. Big Daddy Kane? I can't argue there. JayZ? He'd certainly garner a lotta consideration. My choice would unequivocally go to Mr. Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Dogg. To me, it's a no brainer. I suspect legions of fans across the planet would agree.

Twenty-two years ago, Snoop began terrorizing the music scene. He was initially featured on producer/emcee extraordinaire Dr. Dre's first post-N.W.A. single "Deep Cover". Doggy Dogg's voice was ultra smooth, his delivery was relaxed yet cold blooded and his lyrics were as G as could be. This 20 year old was not intimidated by the big stage. He was just getting started.

In late 1992, Dr. Dre released his debut album, "The Chronic" to alarming critical and popular response. Snoop was prominently featured on the album, specifically on the huuuuuuuge singles "Nuttin but a G Thang" and "Dre Day". Almost overnight, he was not only a household name, but a superstar that had already transcended rap music. Along with Dre, he graced the cover of RollingStone! He didn't even have his own album out yet but still, the world loooooves Snoop...

In November 1993, one day before this writer's 21st birthday, Snoop released his debut album "Doggy Style," produced entirely by Dre. While "The Chronic" was more confrontational, the vibe of "Doggy Style" was more festive, a victory lap if you will. Initially I preferred "The Chronic". The years, however, have treated "Doggy Style" better. Electric singles such as "Gin & Juice," "What's My Name" and "Doggy Dogg World" are the reasons why. Snoop has since made some really good albums, but none approaching this masterpiece. Still, the world looooooves Snoop...

Eleven solo albums, thousands of collaborations, a slew of movie appearances, reality shows and even a foray into reggae, Snoop Dogg is still very relevant today. He's a media tycoon, hosting his own popular internet talk show and often appearing on various ESPN outlets. He's a featured artist on (in my opinion) the best hip-hop album this year, Statik Selektah's monstrous "#whatgoesaround". He's an extremely "active" advocate of the legalization of marijuana in America. He's funny. He's approachable. He's shockingly interactive with his mammoth fanbase. Some may say too active due to his high usage of Instagram.

Still we looooove Snoop...

I believe the reason we still adore this man, this artist after 22 years, is his ability to roll with the times but still stay true to himself. He coaches inner city kids on the football field. His revealed candor about his missteps as a father and husband appeal to us as none of us are perfect. We see a part of ourselves in Snoop Dogg or maybe someone we are close to. Not to mention two decades later he's still an absolute beast on dat derr microphone. The greatest emcee of all time? Maybe, maybe not. The king of the West coast? 2pac and Ice Cube fans would say hell no. Still, we looooove Snoop...

My 10 favorite Snoop Dogg songs not on "The Chronic" or "Doggy Style"...

1) Midnight Love (feat. Daz)

2) Signs (feat. Justin Timberlake)

3) Don't Tell (feat. 213)

4) Sexual Eruption

5) The One and Only (DJ Premier)

At the 7th Annual Roots Picnic, Snoop and Doug E. Fresh do the damn thing on their rendition of Doug E. and Slick Rick's "Lodi Dodi" live. Now, Snoop Dogg had a slow-flow styled version on his debut LP "Doggystyle." But with Fresh dropping beat box heat live... you KNOW Snoop had to hold down his end with more of an homage to Rick The Ruler. Respect! Great performance.

(Catch a recap of the 2014 Roots Picnic after the jump.)

All dope! But... Near the end, you got Biz Markie, Rahzel, and Doug E. Fresh... That's a LOT of beat box humanity on one stage!

Y'all might think I go loose cannon on this site with my posts (well, sometimes); but I run it all past JayForce. Hey, we've got a brand to think of over here. Consequently, when I got the go ahead for this new Psy x Snoop video that's KILLING on YouTube that mirrored my thoughts EXACTLY...

This is kool. The video is very interestingly weird.....The song is just... I don't know how to describe it.

- JayForce

I had to post it first thing. I cannot explain this. But it is fun, unexpected... and rapidly climbing toward 20 million views in its first few days online. Watch, wonder, and chuckle. I know I did.

You know that 'six degrees' game where you link celebrities to each other via the stuff they appeared in with celeb friends/costars they have in common? Snoop just made that easy for linking Tiny Lister ('Deebo' from the "Friday" movies) to himself. Snoop got 'Deebo' on GGN for some good chit-chat... AND got him to smile... big cheese'n (wonder how... hmm).

After Suge Knight Reunion, Snoop Dogg Makes Another Truce

West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg is looking to the future these days after reportedly hooking up with one time media foe and television mogul Oprah Winfrey. A new photo of Snoop Dizzle and Winfrey cozied up has surfaced online this weekend.

Reports Sohh:

Snoop Dogg and Oprah have finally settled their beef ... after the rapper and Big O met up Friday night during an Oscar party. Snoop put Oprah on blast back in '08 for saying on her show he was prejudice against women. Snoop said he was pissed she didn't give him a chance to defend himself. Apparently the two have put the past behind them ... because last night Snoopzilla posted the pic of him and O with Gayle King, proclaiming "Black history.' (TMZ)

Back in 2008, Snoop came clean on his issues with the talk show icon.

Snoop Dogg has beef with Oprah Winfrey. "I don't like her no more," he said at the Hip-Hop Summit Action gala at Capitale on February 25, where he accepted an award. Last year, the talk-show queen did an episode on misogyny in hip-hop, and Snoop was held up as a prime offender-without being invited on the show to defend himself. "I really was offended, because I kind of like her," he said. "Liked her. I'm very articulate, very intellectual. She didn't even get a chance to even know me." (NY Mag
