and should never be forgotten. Rock stars remember Elvis and Jimmy Hendricks for their achievements and contributions to music. The Beetles are constantly praised for their style of music, many artist have mimicked their styles along with thier own flavor. Snoop has done that as well, by acknowleging the great Funk Masters of the past and adding his own flavor. His style of rap is so unique, that people of all ages will enjoy listening. Snoop closes the generation gap; where as a young person may not listen to Bootsie's Rubber Band they will listen to Snoop and get a taste of the Funkadelic erra and enjoy it. The more matured adult who would not ordinarilly listen to rap, will listen to Snoop Dogg because they loved the Funk erra and hear that strategically played in his music. Snoop's music is great!!
The production is what makes this cd better than their debut. Where the debut had that old G-Funk sound of early Snoop work, this one brings in the new element.......Crip Hop. The west coast sound was effectively updated on this cd. Production is provided by Battlecat(who is quickly becoming one of my favorite producers) Hi-Tek, Alchemist, FredWreck, Meech Wells, Jelly Roll, Ric Rock and Swizz Beats providing a tasty west coast platter.
The rhyming is provided by the Eastsidaz (Snoop, Goldie Loc, and Tray Dee) with guest appearances by the usual family members: Kokane, Latoiya Williams, Doggys Angels, Nate Dogg, Soopafly, Suga Free, Bad Azz, Butch Cassidy, Kurupt, RBx and others as well as outside talent provided by Mobb Deep. The rapping, for the most part, is satisfyingly gangsta without overdoing it. They remain real and believable on their songs (instead of just gangsta talk) which is great.
My favorite song is Crip Hop where Battlecat beautifully crafts an outstanding beat. The Eastsidaz come correct lyrically and Latoiya Williams on the break demonstrates why she needs a solo album with her sultry ghetto singing voice. The chemistry between the participants is off the chain. Other notable tight songs include: ILuvIt, Eastside Ridaz, I Dont Know, Welcome To the House, Friends, Gang Bang For Real, Cool, Dogghouse In Ya Mouth( a diss to Death Row), Connected, There Comes A time, Late Night, and Lo Low. Connected is surprisingly a very good song feat. Mobb Deep.Read more ›
People are right, production is tighter on this one.. But slower, other people seem to not mention this, maybe that doesn't matter to them but it does to me. Also I need to say (as no-one else does) Tray Deee has to be my favourite rapper, he's soooo talented with hiz rhymes. Hiz voice is gravely and rough but hiz ryhmes are smooth and slick.. Every word seems to rhyme which is hard to find! Snoop n Goldie Loc are o.k but Tray blows them both away!!
All songs on the album are good, some are excellent - I Love It & Now Is The Time - but like I said it's good but slow... If you like the ol' G-Funk go for the 1st album Snoop Dogg Presents Tha Eastsidaz before you get this as it IS superior (don't listen to every1 else), but essentially you need both. Peace
