Review: Mount Westmore – BAD MFs

Mount Westmore – BAD MFs is one bad ass West Coast rap album that is destined to put the West Coast of the United States back on the music map. The album has a mixture of G-Funk and Bay Area mobb music over hyphy styled beats and saccharine synthesizers. You will her mean bass slaps and bass lines throughout the album along with heavy lyricism. BAD MFs is the debut album from West Coast supergroup Mount Westmore which consists of E-40, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and Ice Cube. The album was released exclusively through a series of individual-purchase NFTs in 2022. The supergroup’s debut album was initially released via blockchain.

The West Coast supergroup explains how they can take a nigga out the ghetto, but can’t take the ghetto out of a nigga. It ain’t where you from, it’s how you come. That is the synopsis of Ghetto Gutter.

The big homie E-40 gives us some useful advice based off experience when he says this, “They can take a nigga out the ghetto. But not the ghetto out a nigga. It ain’t where you from, it’s how you come.” It’s not where you’re from. It’s how you represent and conduct yourself. E-40 brought listeners mannish mob music music for the mob that is blowin’ out your speakers and slappin’ in your AirPod.

Culturally speaking, the West Coast supergroup went tribal on the song Tribal by digging into their African roots and mentioning African heroes and warriors in their lyrics. One example is when Snoop Dogg mentions Shaka Zulu in these lyrics, “Go to war with the Zulu, and I’m Shaka” Snoop Dogg went tribal on this song.

As per usual, Ice Cube’s lyrics are woke on a socially conscious level and a political level. Ice Cube went tribal on this song. He discusses how white slave owners went to Africa to capture black people and turn them into slaves. Ice Cube also tells black people to revolt by telling fuck Thanksgiving.

[Verse 2: Ice Cube]
Who is that goddamn (Who the fuck is that?)
Walkin’ on my land?
He lookin’ like the white man (Them folks)
We should go and fight them (Nigga)
Y’all wanna like them? (What?)
No, we should go and kill them (Yes)
If we don’t kill them (What? What?)
He come back with his children (Tell ’em)
Feed you his religion (Teach)
Now we livin’ like pigeons
Man, fuck Thanksgiving (Fuck Thanksgiving)
This seem like a takin’ (Yes)
Why are we fakin’ (Why?)
Weak-ass nigga, stop shakin’ (Stop it)
Man, fuck they bacon (Fuck ’em)
Make the earth start quakin’

On Lace You Up, E-40, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, and Ice Cube give the new generation which is the younger generation game which consists of useful advice, experience, and educational tips. Here’s some advice from your big homies. Straight from the OGs. The song uses some mean bass slaps that leaves ripples in your speakers and rattle you headphones.

I rate this album 4/5****.

Review: Snoop Dogg – Bacc On Death Row

Snoop Dogg came back with 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. Anyway, he brought back that classic brehsive Death Row sound along with a mixture of new school rap. Snoop raps in his laid-back demeanor and West Coast charm. You can hear smooth vocoders on songs such as Coming Back and Sandwich Bag. Just 20 tracks worth of West Coast funk. This album reclaimed his spot on top of the charts also.

Still Smokin is smoking smoky hazy opener of the album where Snoop Dogg made his triumphant return to Death Row Records. What better way to make a triumphant return to Death Row Records than to sample the Chronic Intro from the 1992 classic album Dr. Dre – The Chronic? Those classic eerie synths will bring back nostalgic memories.

Snoop Dogg still has game in his fire lyrics. He has not lost his touch. That’s not surprising given how long he’s been in the game.

You wouldn’t believe me even if I told you niggas
My game is cold, I could still mold you niggas
Roll you niggas a fat stick of that chronic

It’s clear to see Snoop Dogg is not here to debate, He just simply wants to vibe and create music. And also smoke 150 marijuana blunts a day. That is what he states with these lyrics.

I think I left a small piеce on my plate
I’ma rework this shit and get a few things straight
Not here to debate, just simply wanna vibe and create
Smoke a little sticky-icky, drop my vocals on tape
And call my lil’ cute bitch who loves smokin’ on vapes

You can tell that Snoop Dogg got business minded with these lyrics. Notice the reference to the business terminology “LLC”. Snoop Dogg is definitely making moves like a CEO. “Harry-O got freed up, unfinished business/We LLC’d up, Los Angeles G’d up”

Coming Back marked the triumphant return of Snoop Dogg signing back to his former label Death Row Records and the umpteenth rebirth of Death Row Records. Snoop Dogg lets everybody know that he is back in this bitch and is ready to do it again. The song featured a feature from the frequent collaborator October London with his smooth voice behind a vocoder. Every player that he knows give a fuck about a ho. Snoop Dogg is back in this bitch ready to do it again.

These lyrics imply that all Snoop Dogg wants to do is smoke marijuana.

I’m back in this bitch ready to do it again
Light that Chronic, where my Gin?
They lettin’ real niggas up out of the pen
Roller skate, now roll again
I hit my sweet spot, streets got back on lead
Beatbox, heat rocks, talk that shit
Plottin’, plan it, bakin’ inhale

Snoop Dogg curbs his enthusiasm on the song Crip Ya Enthusiasm and Makes America Crip Again at the same time. Notice how he referenced the HBO show series Curb Your Enthusiasm and sampled the theme song from the show. So smell the piss and the perfume. Indulge in the marijuana smog. Crip Your Enthusiasm.

The song showcases Snoop’s songwriting skills and abilities. Snoop’s pen game is lethal cyanide mixed with ether because he is spittin’ nothin’ but them hits out as these lyrics state. He’s got that Hall of Fame pen game. Snoop Dogg still has fire lyrics. He has not lost his touch. That’s not surprising given how long he’s been in the game.

‘Cause my pen game is lethal cyanide mixed with ether
Spittin’ nothin’ but them hits out

Mm, pen and paper, money maker, let the beat ride
Let me put you up on this nigga from the east side
This nigga born ready, serve a nigga ether
With the pen or off the heady, this nigga flow is dеadly (Where he at?)
Right hеre, Snoop Dogg, I’m with the G Child
Play something, let me fuck you up just with this freestyle (That’s dope)
For sure, but let’s make a real record with real effort
‘Cause my pen game is lethal cyanide mixed with ether
Spittin’ nothin’ but them hits out

I tell my street life glory in a east side story
I got that Hall of Fame pen game, nigga, ain’t shit changed
Still leave you niggas assed out like Ving Rhames
Ever since I started, I’ve been all about big things

This is another episode of a Doggy Dogg tale. You know Snoop Dogg well just by the smell. You can sense his presence when you see the weed smoke in the air. So Crip your enthusiasm. His flows are deadly.

La-di-da-di. Snoopy’s in the party. Smokin’ that marijuana. The best served. The best kind of marijuana that’s good for everybody. There’s some players in the house. If you see ’em, point ’em out.

Snoop pulled up in that Bentley with his nigga Leon Black. That’s simply two layers of mackin’ on you bitches. Like true players. They came to make the party crackalackin’. Pop that champagne bottle because we are going up full throttle. You know where to find Snoop. You can find Snoop with a cute-faced bitch, big ass, and waist tiny. That is an exotic bitch. We all up in the club livin’ our best life.

Snoop Dogg discusses how he makes money with cryptocurrency since he had invested in the meta verse back in 2021 by investing in NFTs and cryptocurrency on his song House I Built.

How much is his Sandbox worth right now? His Sandbox cryptocurrency is worth $4.8 million dollar. That’s $4,800,000 dollars. This is because he is getting a hundred-million-dollar deals with this cryptocurrency he has been earning. Snoop Dogg is the master of this cryptocurrency game since he took all his classes and learned it by the masses. He surpassed all the masters and now he is the master. Now we talkin’ stocks, bonds, NFTs, and cryptos. We can make this legal paper. There is a need to read between the lines. Snoop Dogg is all about investments. The homie built a new franchise, needed one million dollars. So Snoop Dogg dropped two million dollars.

These lyrics explain how Snoop Dogg invested in the meta verse by investing in NFTs and cryptocurrency.

[Interlude: Snoop Dogg, Nick]
Yo, Nick (Yo)
So, uh, how much is my Sandbox worth right now?
Your sand— your sand token?
Yeah, what’s my— (Just your token?)
Yeah (Uh, four-point— four-point-eight)
What did it start off at?
Three hundred thousand dollars
So it’s at $4.8 million?

We keep blowin’ trees, all these emergencies
A hundred-million-dollar deals with this cryptocurrency
Spitter, hitter, did her, get her, man, I got a lotta moves
Used to spend a lotta bread on a whole lotta jewels
Fools learn fast, so I must be the fastest
Took all my classes, learned it by the masses
Surpassed all the masters, now I’m the master
Last thing out there is my Doggystyle masters
Yeah, I gotta have it like a bad habit
‘Cause Doggystyle, nigga, was a motherfuckin’ classic (Ooh-wee)
Am I lyin’? No, you not
It was hot, so motherfucker, gimme what you got

I rate this album 4/5****!!

Review: Snoop Dogg – Woof

Snoop Dogg’s Woof single proved to be a smash hit! It was due to that woofing and heavy-hitting bass produced by Craig B and KLC that this single was a success in 1998. The bass is pounding heavily from the sub-woofers. That is why you hear bass rumbling inside of the synths. KLC stuck true to the Louisiana roots by using chords, cowbells, and woofing. The lyrics are action packed. Thanks to Pen & Pixel Graphics, the title stood out with that bling bling and jewelry in Snoop Dogg’s name on the top. That’s what helped make it go platinum.

The song Woof proved to be a smash hit. It was de to that woofing and heavy-hitting bass produced by Craig B and KLC that Woof became a smash hit. KLC stuck true to the Louisiana roots by using chords, cowbells, and woofing.

The single also contained an exclusive bonus track which was a It’s All On A Ho. Some No Limit fans might remember this song as the bonus track. This was the exclusive bonus track which was advertised as “also contains an exclusive bonus track” on the front cover.

A lot of these songs were released as b-sides on singles in the 1990s. That happened frequently back then. No Limit was famous for putting exclusive bonus tracks that could only be found on only on certain versions of a single. That is why the song was not used on the multi-platinum album “Da Game Is To Be Sold, Not To Be Told”.

I rate this single 5/5*****!!

Review: Snoop Dogg – The Doggumentary EP

The Doggumentary EP was one of the widely known unreleased Death Row projects which fans know about. The EP had the original version of Vapors, Gangsta Walk, Midnight Love, Snoop’s Upside Your Head, Snoop Bounce, and more. The Doggumentary EP was recorded and created as a follow-up attempt to show people and to let fans know Snoop Dogg never went anywhere.

Death Row Records had Snoop Dogg put together a tight ass EP which was promoted. The Doggumentary EP was supposed to be released in 1998. However that did not happen. Death Row Records and Interscope fucked Snoop Dogg over. Death Row didn’t want him to succeed as they were focused on promoting 2Pac and releasing his music. They didn’t want him putting out music anymore which led to the EP being scrapped altogether. They fucked up by not releasing the Doggumentary EP. This was the final nail in the coffin, which led to Snoop’s escape from Death Row at the beginning of 1998.

Gangsta Walk was recorded early for Tha Doggfather album. However that song was replaced by C- Walkin. C-Walkin was later released on the 2000 bootleg album Dead Man Walkin. The song was produced by Daz Dillinger.

Midnight Love was recorded in late June 1996 during the same session as You Thought and Definition Of A Homeboy. Midnight Love was produced by Soopafly and mixed by Daz Dillinger. Midnight Love also features a verse from Daz Dillinger with Raphael Saadiq on the hook. Midnight Love was saved for the Doggumentary EP. Eventually Midnight Love was blowing up. It was the number one song on K-Rock.

The original version of Vapors was recorded the night 2Pac and Suge Knight went to Las Vegas, Nevada. DJ Battlecat produced the original version of Vapors featuring Charlie Wilson and Teena Marie. This version was to appear on the retail version of Tha Doggfather but was replaced the very last minute with the DJ Pooh version which was recorded in October 1996 and was subsequently moved to the scrapped Doggumentary EP.

Soopafly remixed the famous Snoop’s Upside Ya Head (Soopafly G-Mix) that originally recorded for The Doggumentary EP.

I rate this EP 4/5****!!

Daz said Snoop Dogg Is Incorrect About Nas Feature On 2Pac Album

Snoop Dogg recently was on te drinks champ podcast and made a mistake saying Nas was originally featured on Daz produced Gor My Mind Made Up from All All Eyez On Me Album, what is the real story?

Review: Snoop Dogg – Tha Doggfather

Snoop Dogg’s Tha Doggfather album is the worst 3/5*** star album in the history of music. Not many tracks were that enjoyable. The only good tracks were Vapors, 2001, Sixx Minutes, and Doggfather. Honestly the only good tracks were Vapors and Doggfather. The album nearly become lost in the turmoil and tragic death of the slain 2Pac. What was missing was Dr. Dre’s production on this Snoop Dogg album. Death Row Records and Snoop Dogg really dropped the ball here.

Albums sales proved that differently. The album sold less than his debut album, Doggystyle, did. The album turned out to be a disappointment among Snoop Dogg fans despite high sales in the first 3 weeks or so. Constant promotion in magazines, albums, flyers, or interviews could not save this album from being mediocre.

I rate this album 3/5***.

Review: Snoop Dogg – Da Game Is To Be Sold

Moving to No Limit in 1997 for Snoop Dogg proved to improve his musical career. Da Game Is To Be Sold was a departure from his two previous West Coast sounding album. This album was a lot more commercial sounding which is due to that Southern rap sound and crossover pop appeal Snoop Dogg himself had. This was thanks to the all-in-your-face production with those thick loud beats and heavy bass produced by Beats By The Pound.

Thanks to Pen & Pixel Graphics, the album stood out with that bling bling and jewelry in Snoop Dogg’s name on the top. The title at the bottom of the album cover is gold with bling bling! That’s what made it go platinum. Pen & Pixel Graphics always stands out to everyone in a good way.

Woof! proved to be a smash hit! This was thanks to the all-in-your-face production with those thick loud beats and heavy bass produced by Beats By The Pound. Slow Down was Woof! revisited as the song used the same production technique and production style as Woof! did. But Slow Down was not as much as a success as Woof! was.

I rate this album 4/5****.
