Classic Music: Antlife's Top 25 Hip Hop Albums of All-Time #19 (Snoop Dogg "Doggystyle") (1993)

Y’all know what it is!!

You can’t have a list of classic albums, and not have Doggystyle on there. I remember when this dropped, and how crazy me and my friends went for this album. I had a friend that copped it first, and he had it on cassette!! We walked around listenin’ to the tape on his walkman outside through the headphones, thirst just to hear what this album was soundin’ like. We were just kids then, but even back then, I knew this album was easily goin’ to be one of the best and pivotal albums of all-time. Not that it needs to be said, but Dr. Dre is a genius!! The production on this was CRAZY!! Sonically, nothin’ around this time was soundin’ how Doggystyle did. By the time I got the CD, I could tell that Dre and the camp over at Death Row were workin’ on another level.

I always loved the vibe that their records had back then, it always sounded like they were havin’ a lot o’ fun when makin’ those albums. This album was no different. My favorite tracks back then were “Pump, Pump”, “For All My N*ggaz & B*tches”, “Serial Killaz”, “G Funk Intro”, “Lodi Dodi”, “Tha Shiznit” and of course, probably my favorite track from Snoop EVER, “Gin & Juice”. This album just sounded classic right out the gate, and it’s one of those timeless joints that you can really listen to at anytime. I assume you own this already, but if you don’t (and that would be kinda weird), you need to cop this classic immediately!!
