iTunes Review

America loves Snoop Dogg and it’s nice to see him taking advantage of his elite status by stretching out and trying some new tricks on Ego Trippin’. While the laconic country shuffle of “My Medicine” might take his audience’s goodwill for granted, there is no entertainer but Snoop who could pull off the New Wave fetishism of “Cool” and “Sexual Eruption,” two icy Eighties throwbacks that feature singing from the big Dogg himself. And while Ego Trippin’ lacks the precision focus of Snoop’s last album, the Neptunes-helmed Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, it does bring into the fold two of the most underappreciated producers in hip-hop history: Teddy Riley and DJ Quik. Though Riley has been all but dismissed as a dated relic of the early Nineties, he provides Ego Trippin’ with some of its most unique and intoxicating soundscapes, including the sinister electro of “Gangsta Like Me” and the woozy arpeggios of “Let It Out.” There is a sense of ironic self-awareness in the album’s title, and though Ego Trippin’ can feel like a closet full of costumes, no performer brings more fun to the runway.

Who is this imposter and what has he done with the real Snoop Dogg

I am the only one who thinks this is Snoops wackest album. Im sorry but as much as I like Snoop this ablum just does not stand up to his other material. Whenever an artist makes it they seem to get out of touch with the street. Remember Snoop for albums like Doggystyle and songs like Gin n' Juice not garbage like this.

Snoop Dogg-Ego Trippin

Snoop's ninth album, after successful Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, Snoop is back with Ego Trippin. Promising some experimenting, Snoop looks for the right sound of a veteran gangsta and family man. Press Play: A solid starter, Snoop brings that smooth flow and simply does his thing. The soul filled sample of The Isley Brothers "Atlantis" is a perfect production to bring listeners in, as Kurupt ad libs. 3.5/5 SD Is Out: Teddy Riley delivers some smooth bumping bass, as light colorful keys ride and hushed snaps make for a smooth rolling number. The electronic voice is decent, but its nice that Charlie Wilson adds some crooning, as this track is plain chill. 3.5/5 Gangsta Like Me: Wild instrumentation by Teddy Riley as the track is very experimental. The light girl singing about getting with Snoop, as Snoop sings a response. The track goes in crazy directions, but it is interesting, as Snoop spits that pimp talk. 3.5/5 Neva Have 2 Worry: N***aracci delivers some true gangsta production. Some people say this is boring, but this is Snoop reminiscing about his past, pretty much his autobiography. Uncle Chucc's soulful hook reminisces about how he made it and how he ain't going no where. Great track here, one of my favorites. 4/5 Sexual Eruption: I was so surprised that Shawty Redd produced this, since he is known for banging bass and hood production. Here he delivers playful flutes, a midtempo smooth love bumper. Snoop experiments with the talkbox and he works nicely, something different for Snoop. 4/5 Life Of Da Party: Snares and bass fill this track here, Too Short spits a solid guest verse, Mistah F.A.B. brings his hyphy personality. Snoop drops a decent verse as this is intended to be a club banger, it isn't bad, but isn't one of the top tracks. 3/5 Waste Of Time: Raphael Saadiq brings some slow rolling production and a light hook. The track isn't that great, just about how they did it and then it was a waste of time arguing. A little dull here, some filler. 2.5/5 Cool: Snoop redoes the Time's "Cool", as Snoop turns it into a fun party cut. The track is glitzy and feel good, even if it is totally out of Snoop's resume, he experiments and creates some smooth grooving music. 3.5/5 Sets Up: The Neptunes bring their unique style and instruments, as Snoop spits about reppin where you from and throwing your sets up. Pharrell's hook is amusing, but the track is only decent. 3/5 Deez Hollywood Nights: Nottz samples some old school tune that plays in with the bouncy ditsy feeling production. Snoop fits well, spitting about Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Biel and white girls, hollywood life. Has a nice bounce and is a smooth track. 3.5/5 Whateva U Do: Just when you thought this album was gonna go into some filler, this pops up. Snoop totally works this track, over Khao's west coast vibin synths and keyboards, Snoop sings "we got that chronic chronic, we got that yacc yacc on you, whateva you do". Its a grand party track that is totally west coast and what Snoop's about. 4/5 Staxxx In My Jeans: Fat bass beats haunt this track as the screwed and chopped hook is a nice look, Snoop flows nicely. The track isn't bad, but it can be considered filler. 2.5/5 Been Around The World: Snoop delivers some heartfelt lyrics to his lady, as this "when I get home" track is truly nice. The hook is smooth and upbeat, as Snoop lays it down about how he's been around the world and he's ready to come home to his woman. 4/5 Let It Out: Slight latin influence, the hook is nice but the track is a little cliched. Decent. 3/5 My Medicine: Hilarious cut here as Snoop turns a country track into a drug lovin cut, funny. 3/5 Ridin In My Chevy: Menacing beat, but the track is filler and with the album of this caliber, it could be left off. 2/5 Those Gurlz: Chipmunk sample, Snoop lays his smooth game to ladies. It isn't bad, relaxing and in the mood of the album. 3/5 One Chance: This one is filler, as Snoop spits about finding the right woman, but it is sporadic and a little dull. 2/5 Why Did You Leave Me: Beautiful production, its a sad cut, Snoop spits his heartbroken pain, but its a little mushy for the boss. 3/5 Can't Say Goodbye: Excellent ender here that shows Snoop really keepin it real. Delivering some of the realest lyrics, Charlie Wilson's croon works beautifully as Teddy Riley's uplifiting keys, allow Snoop to get his message across. 5/5 I felt this album was much better than his previous. His last album had some good singles, but overall lacked and was a little tiresome on topics. The tracks here are experimentive and the creativity is much better, a refreshing Snoop sound that people should adapt to. He keeps it street, delivering the pimpin "Gangsta Like Me" and "SD Is Out". But he's more party oriented with "Life Of Da Party", "Whateva U Do", "Cool" and others. But its when Snoop's reminsicing that he truly shows growth and shine, "Neva Have 2 Worry" and the heart warming "Can't Say Goodbye" both show a veteran looking at his past. It could have done better with a shorter tracklist and less filler, but is solid overall. The experimental samples and sounds are all of what make Ego Trippin another strong step in Snoop's career. A solid album that is so far the best album in 2008, of course its only March, but whatever. Rating 8 out of 10

Forget the haters, Snoop has a classic album!!!

Man, among the years listening to Snoop, I have heard it all from hustling, females, and west coast life. As a resident from the Northwest, I will support my coast, but creativity is always needed. Thats exactly what Snoop gives me, listening to Sexual Eruption I knew the cd was going to be blazing!!! Tracks 1-10 are all bangers man!!! The tracks like My Medicine, One chance (Make it good) grown man music, and Cant Say Goodbye, I am proud Snoop!!!

Biography

Born: October 20, 1972 in Long Beach, CA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

As the embodiment of '90s gangsta rap, Snoop Dogg blurred the lines between reality and fiction. Introduced to the world through Dr. Dre's The Chronic, Snoop quickly became the most famous star in rap, partially because of his drawled, laconic rhyming and partially because the violence that his lyrics implied seemed real, especially after he was arrested on charges of being a murder accomplice. The arrest certainly strengthened his myth, and it helped his debut album, 1993's Doggystyle, become the...
