Album Review

As Snoop explains during the intro, The Big Squeeze was made to feature some underappreciated and unknown West Coast talent, plus showcase Snoop as producer and beat-maker, for which he uses the pseudonym Niggaracci. He's no Dr. Dre behind the boards, at least not yet, but he's surprisingly good, offering numerous hypnotic basslines, skeletal G-funk, and crooked beats perfect for crip-walking. During the intro he also claims he wanted to produce the record "from start to finish," but Soopafly is in charge of Tha Dogg Pound's "We Came to Bang Out" while the relaxed highlight "Can U Get Away?" was produced by David Banner. They could have been added last minute, and they could be clues as to why the release feels a bit patched together, but the enthusiasm and pride Snoop projects throughout the album makes up for a lot, especially for hardcore fans who have heard him sleepwalk through these types of fringe releases before. The loose weekend feel of the album makes it hard for most to really shine with their rhymes, save the gruff War Zone, who emerges as one to watch thanks to his fine work on "Shackled Up." Veteran Kurupt is also a pleasure to hear, as are MC Eiht and JT the Bigga Figga in their disappointingly short appearances. Since Kurupt, War Zone, and the Niggaracci side of Snoop are the ones who truly benefit from the comp, The Big Squeeze comes up short on its goal of making every name known. Still, this Left Coast party is a really good party even if you don't remember every stranger you meet.

Customer Reviews

Snoop's Re-Up

It's like Snoop's "The Re-Up"... the album isn't for him, its for promotion of close artists like Daz & Kurupt and newbies like AZURE who need exposure. Don't hate Snoop cuz he didn't give effort on this, thats why not a lot of good rarppers on it.

The West is making a come back...

This album is what the West used to sound like. You have everything in this album, from gangsta all the way to its laidback form that Cali is known for. Keep doing what you are doing Snoop, great job on the album....

3.5 actually

I just want to say immediatley to everyone out there that this is not a cd!!! It's a mixtape. A cd, and a mixtape are two completely seperate entities. I need to give props to AK of NJ because i understood where he or she was coming from. We may not have the same opinions on this mixtape, but i understood what it was he or she was trying to say. Also for anyone confused listen to the 30 second preview of The Big Squeeze Intro. This is a mixtape that Snoop is putting out to give some of hist artists some air time. Also this was a chance for Snoop to prodcue some songs for once. Lastly whoever Repa is (the reviewer) he or she is a racist!!! itunes i thought more highly of you than to promote something as completly backwards as racism. I guess i was wrong. He based on some rapper that he didn't agree with he condmned an entire race of people. I checked out his/her other reviews, and almost every single one says the same thing. That means that all Repa is someone who has absolutely no originality. He had nothing meaningful to say, because he couldn't think of anthing to say but what he repeated on 40 reviews. That is what i'd call a disgrace. i urge all of you who read this to look at his review. You'll see that he says, and i quote, "not other race of people that has been ensalved have lost their identity, and promote ignorance and violence within themselves" So finally i urge all of you who think that racism is wrong please give me a helpful review, and give Repa a NO for was this review helpful. Sorry for the length of this. Thank You

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...
