Enter Snoop Dogg: a voice too smooth for its time, and harsh enough to rewind. Just a couple years removed from his full-time crimewave days, on his coming out party, he‚Äôs flanked by the usual suspects‚ÄĒTha Dogg Pound, Daz & Kurupt, The Lady of Rage, Warren G, and more‚ÄĒbut he‚Äôs never dethroned from the star of the show because he plays his role with an unmatched menace. With Dr. Dre on the boards for every song, the Doggystyle universe creeps slow through a Long Beach night and pulverizes the speakers at the kickback in a mere breath, extending the sonic narrative of The Chronic into a new journey.
