Various Artists – Snoop Dogg Presents Death Row Summer 2022 was released as a smoking hot new Snoopadelic album to celebrate his return to his former record label, Death Row Records, which he was signed to back in the 1990s. Oh the irony.
Mad Mans World is the loud vibrant dancehall reggae song performed solely by Jane Handcock, a frequent collaborator of Raphael Saadiq. The song has that tropical organic vibe despite the autotune.
Jane turns off her phone because she is tired of dealing with her man. Truth be told, he doesn’t deserve her. Jane is done being his fool. Even though she shakes her ass in a thong for him, twerks to his favorite song for him, and prepares his bong for him. But he doesn’t deserve Jane.
It’s a mad man’s world. That is why she will pack her things with no closure. She has got options. Leaving him is overdue. Jane did anything he asked her to. But he doesn’t deserve her.
Mulholland Drive is a 70s soul inspired and driven soul song backed by newcomer October London and his melodic vocals that purely sweet. October London kills every song he has sung on. LaToiya Williams graces the song with her graceful harmonic vocals. This is an October London and LaToiya Williams duet.
October London is on top of the world. So don’t hold him down while the world is goin’ crazy because that ruins his vibes and kills the whole mood. Take a ride with him. The sunlight’s gone but the moon’s so bright. He is about to cruise down Mulholland Drive in Hollywood, California because he needs some quiet time for himself. He wants to get away from the world due to the negativity.
LaToiya Williams wants go for a long ride somewhere far, far away from here where’s there no negative space. Just her and the highway. Just her, October London, and the moon.
Snoop Dogg talks about how Death Row Records is about to change the game on Touch Away. Death Row Records already took over the metaverse. Snoop Dogg’s rhyming schemes are on point during the song. So you know he still has that creativity and lyrical fire in him. That’s not a surprise given how long he’s been in the game. Battlecat killed it with those beats of his and his production. Those beats underlap the everlasting heavy bass.
Snoop Dogg claims he’s gotta be a “better me” because he is a top dogg with whole another pedigree. Ain’t none of y’all ahead of him. This is right where he wanted to be. He makes this shit look organic and you haters can’t stand it. Snoop Dogg is in control and calls the shots since he runs the label.
Snoop Dogg’s rhyming schemes are on point in his lyrics. So you know he still has that creativity and lyrical fire in him.
Yeah, I make this shit look organic
And this is from the most recognized on the planet
And you haters can’t stand it
But can’t do nothing ’cause that’s just how I planned it
Snoop Dogg calls for a return of the real hip hop/rap and not the bullshit wack rap we hear on the radio nowadays in these lyrics. He sees you niggas been brainwashed into liking wack rap.
Back to the Batcave, follow my rap maze
Real hip-hop, come up out of them whack ways
I see you niggas been brainwashed
I’m cut from the cloth of this shit called hip-hop
Don’t stop, won’t stop, nigga, we sure shot
Slide in the six-four, that bitch is so hot
Death Row Records, yeah, dog, we twist ’em
West Coast baby right back in your system
Snoop Dogg & Tha Dogg Pound brought back the boogie and G-Funk sound on Keep On Ridin. Dogg Pound Gangstas keep on ridin’. Battlecat killed it with those beats of his and his production. Those beats underlap the everlasting heavy bass.
I rate this album 3/5***.
