Return of the Boom Bap - Snoop Dogg & Tha Dogg Pound Gang - That's My Work 5

I typically don't review or feature full length projects. For one, there just aren't that many to review, and two, they just don't make albums like they used to. That being said, I decided to take a listen to the latest mixtape project from West coast legend Snoop Dogg, That's My Work 5 - a joint venture with Daz and Kurupt from Da Dogg Pound, and DJ Drama. After a listen, I walked away with mixed feelings about Snoops latest mixtape and thought the best way to review it was to briefly share some of the pros and cons.

Pros:

1. The simple fact that Snoop is on the mic - Let's be honest. Dude is one of the smoothest cats to ever do it...period.

2. Kurupt - Quite possibly one of the most under rated emcees of all time, Kurupt's abilities as a lyricist shine on a few cuts on this project.

3. Lyricism - Overall, the lyrics on this project are pretty damn good.

4. These Hoes Ain't Loyal Remix - Honestly, I hate the original song, premise and all, but it's something about the way Kurupt leads off the track that breaths new life into Chris Brown's attempt at expressing his displeasure with the ladies' loyalty.

5. Bright spots - Cuts #8 (In My Lifetime), #9 (Foreign DPG), #11 (Niggaz Iz On Me), #12 (Think I Love You) and #16 (I'm On It DPG) are slammin'...no question.

6. Cover art - what...it's kinda fresh.

Cons:

1. No cameo info - there are some pretty good versus on the project, but we don't know who they are from.

2. DJ Drama - Drama has more than proved himself as a fantastic project producer and force to be reckoned with, but the DJ drops on the records get old really fast. IJS

3. We miss the G Funk - There are some bangin' cuts on this project (see #5 above), but the overall sound is probably too vast a departure from what we have grown to love from Snoop and Da Dogg Pound. The flows are strong and the tracks are bangin', but in some places, the two don't mesh well together.

All in all, the project is worth a listen and will definitely have you bobbing and bouncing with your Beats on high. But hell...that's just my opinion. Listen for yourself and form your own. Oh, and leave your thoughts and comments below. Enjoy!

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!

Psy - "Hangover" featuring Snoop Dogg (Video)

    
Psy - "Hangover" featuring Snoop Dogg (Video)
Picture 5



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.
