Carrying on the raw tradition of The Chronic, Snoop Dogg crafts another G-Funk masterpiece with Dr. Dre supplying the beats. From his semi-nasal tone to his erratic sense of humor, Snoop masterfully devised a way to make himself an unforgettable rapper. Witty and gritty at the same time, his vocal presence unwavering and smooth. Without a doubt, Doggystyle opened the door for several west coast emcees. Dr. Dre's sonic finesse aside, Snoop's piquant delivery, timely cadence, and haunting hooks were equally imperial to the Doggystyle's success. Gangsta rap never sounded so sweet.
