Snoop Dogg hits us with his 19th studio album which is amazing in itself. This latest offering is titled BODR (Bacc On Death Row) and it finds Snoop recently taking over control of the legendary Death Row Records. He definitely keeps the classic West Coast sound prevalent throughout this record. The production value overall is really good and there are a ton of greatly produced tracks on this album. He definitely found some high quality beats. He’s got some features from some hip hop heavyweights like Nas, T.I., The Game, Wiz Khalifa, and more. On the mic, he is still the same old Snoop Dogg with his flow though. It is good to hear that he is still himself though. The album starts off strong with him rhyming over the same beat that was on the intro to Dr. Dre’s Chronic album on “Still Smokin.” There really isn’t a more perfect way to start the album. “Coming Back” has Battlecat on the production and sounds like a classic West Coast song. This one is definitely something to ride to. “Gotta Keep Pushin” samples Mista’s “Blackberry Molasses” and features T.I. and Sleepy Brown. This one is a more mellow and laid back jam, but still sounds great. “Jerseys In The Rafters” is a harder type beat that features fellow West Coast MC The Game. “Pop Pop” is a fantastic song with a sped up soul sample and great beat featuring Da Baby. All in all, Snoop continues to be a powerhouse in the game of rap almost 30 years later which is such an amazing accomplishment.
OVERALL RATING: 4 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
