Murder Was The Case was a movie starring Snoop Doggy Dogg, named after one of his most massive hits. Dr. Dre, the producer of the song, directed the movie. I am not usually into soundtracks, but this album is on Death Row, so it's got to be good. The musicians featured on this turn in excellent performances, and thankfully, there is very little R&B music. Such great guests as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kurupt, Daz Dillinger, Ice Cube, Tray D, Nate Dogg, Lil' C-Style, Swoop G, Jodeci, DJ Quik, CP0, Slip Capone, and many more. The production is beautiful and owed largely to Daz Dillinger, who really puts in great work, instead of Dr. Dre, who seemed to get all the credit. DJ Quik also puts in some excellent tracks, as well as some lesser known producers, but not too many. The beats sound more refined than those on The Chronic, they are smoother and more keyboard-oriented. The beats on this album are very similiar to those on Doggystyle, which proves that Daz and Warren G did do a lot of that production, instead of Dr. Dre, who got all the credit. All of the tracks are laced with those keyboards, and excellent bass.
The highlights on this album include "Murder Was The Case (Remix)", performed by Snoop Doggy Dogg. Unlike the original, this one is less dense and a little more bouncy. Dre did do the remix, and the high-pitched keyboard sounds he made famous are certainly there. "Natural Born Killers", performed by Dr. Dre and Ice Cube is one of the hardest tracks ever, with hardcore lyrics and a rock-like beat that pumps through the veins. The best track is easily the memorable "What Would You Do", performed by Kurupt and Daz Dillinger. Here they famously diss Eazy-E and B.G.

This sountrack is still off the hook after almost 8 years of its release to the public. The album starts off with "Murder was the Case", which was a classic, then the collaboration of Ice Cube and Dre in "Natural Born Killas" which was also a classic. However the best track on the album is done by DJ Quik in "Dollars and Sense". In this track, Quik humiliates his rival, MC Eiht. On one line, Quik states that "E-I-H-T? Now should I continue? You left out the "G" 'cause the "G" ain't in you". That was the song that ruined MC Eiht. There are some other songs that "Recognize" with Sam Snead f/ Dr. Dre, "21 Jumpstreet", and the eerie, dark "The Eulogy" which is done by Kurupt, CPO, and Slip Capone which will always stand out in my mind. The rest of the album is with listening to. This soundtrack has many featured artists like Ice Cube, Nate Dogg, Jocedi, Jewell, Danny Boy and more. This is a definite pick up for the people who love rap.

Death Row was such a great label back in the day. They were no fluke or one hit wonder label or a label that revolves around one artist. They had a flurry of talent that shined on almost every track they put out.
Murder Was The Case Sdtk. is no different. The usual stars are here: SNoop, Daz, Kurupt, Dre, Nate Dogg. But it also adds some outside talent such as Ice Cube, Tray Dee, DJ Quik as well as others.
This is a perfect blend of G-funk beats and hard lyrics.
My Favorite song on the album is Who Got Some Gangsta feat. Snoop, Lil C Style, Dogg Pound, and Young Swoop. The beat, to me, is the best on the album and has the rappers going back in forth like a cypher or something and is really off the chain. This is so tight.
Other notable songs include Murdder Was The Case remix, Natural Born Killas, 21 Jumpstreet feat. Tray Dee, One More Day, Come Up to My Room, U Better Recognize etc.
It also includes the diss songs Dollars & Sense by DJ Quik where he lyrically stabs MC Eiht in the heart.
"E-I-H-T Now should I continue? You left out the G cus the G aint in you!" Genius ! And What Would You Do where Dogg Pound calls out BG Knocc Out & Gangsta Dre'sta.
Overall pick this up if you are a fan of WEst Coast music or any of the Dogg Pound affiliated artists. Truly a Classic.
