Snoop Doggy Dogg – “Doggystyle” Album Anniversary

Snoop Doggy Dogg released his first studio album “Doggystyle” on November 23 1993. At the time, it was the most anticipated Hip Hop album to date.  It was produced by Dr Dre and it had guest appearances from Nate Dogg, The Dogg Pound, Lady of Rage, RBX, and others.  The album sold over 800,00 copies the first week of it’s release.

The album is as perfect as can be.  The Source magazine at the time had a problem with the album due to the fact that Snoop could not be heard until the third track “Gin and Juice” and gave it 4.5 mics. This fact is true but the album is still practically perfect.
“The Shiznit” was just that and of course “What’s My Name” are truly bangin in every way but it’s the posse cuts were Snoop Dogg shines.  On “Serial Killa” he invites RBX and Tha Dogg Pound to pick “Six million ways to die…choose one!”
“The cloud becomes black, and the sky becomes blue

Now you in the midst of the Dogg Pound crew
Ain’t no clue, on why the fuck we do what we do
Leave you in a state of paranoia, oooh
Don’t make a move for your gat so soon cuz
I drops bombs like Platoon (ay nigga)
Walk with me, hold my hand and let me lead you
I’ll take you on a journey, and I promise I won’t leave you
(I won’t leave you) until you get the full comprehension
And when you do, that’s when the mission
or survival, becomes your every thought
Keep your eyes open, cuz you don’t wanna be caught
Half steppin with your weapon on safety
Now break yourself motherfucker ‘fore you make me
take this 211 to another level
I come up with your ends, you go down with the devil
Now roam through the depths of hell
Where the rest your buster ass homeboys dwell

Well…”
Well…the album also contains the party anthem “Ain’t No Fun” where Snoop, Nate Dogg, Warren G and Kurupt have fun rhyming about them hootchies!  It’s Nate Dogg’s verse that everyone can recite by memory!
“When I met you last night baby
Before you opened up your gap
I had respect for ya lady
But now I take it all back
Cause you gave me all your pussy
And ya even licked my balls
Leave your number on the cabinet
And I promise baby, I’ll give ya a call
Next time I’m feelin kinda horny
You can come on over, and I’ll break you off
And if you can’t fuck, that day, baby
Just lay back, and open your mouth
Cause I have never
met a girl
That I love
in the whole wide world”
From east to west…north to south…this album is classic and is still beloved by everyone!
