Snoop Dogg
Tha Blue Carpet Treatment

snoopdogg.jpgPerhaps radio killed Snoop Dogg’s gangsta. Lately, the once-edgy Doggfather has been favoring the Neptunes’ soft core over Dr. Dre’s Cali funk. True, Pharrell and Chad aren’t solely to blame. But, honestly, would Murder Was the Case–era Snoop ever have made an album as watered-down as 2004’s R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece? The Long Beach, Calif., native’s name is now identifiable everywhere, from Mary Jane ciphers to soccer mom gatherings. Not that such accessibility is negative. It’s just that Snoop’s recent albums have largely forgotten his original bread and butter—unadulterated G-funk.

When you’re a “dogg,” however, you’re a dogg for life. So with his eighth album, Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, Snoop’s lyrical fire seems resurrected, as he delivers arguably his most consistently scorching work post-Doggystyle. For proof, look no further than “Vato,” the tense Neptunes-tracked first single. Bypassing the club, Snoop weaves a message-filled yarn of Black-and-Brown unity, a topic quite taboo for Left Coast thugs. Free of an anthemic hook, and given the heart-pounding effect of unexpectedly dark keyboards and snares from the ’Tunes, it’s enough to make Snoop’s skeptics drop misconceptions like they’re hot.

Just a fluke? Bitch, please. The West Coast OG lets his mind spray throughout Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, covering a wide range of topical prose. The soulful opener “Think About It” pits Frequency’s grandiose instrumentation against Snoop’s state-of-the-union address (“Basically, you hear the rappers out here using my flow/But they need Snoop on their record to make it official, though”). Issues switch back to the block on the epic “Gangbanging 101.” Earthquakelike claps and nightmarish keys power the Crip’s menacing color-blind duet with Cali youngblood The Game, which is produced by Snoop and Terrance Martin (collectively known as Niggaracci).

Even with his mirror pointed inward, Snoop sounds enhanced. On the Nate Dogg–assisted “Crazy,” he candidly examines his surroundings (“I love my folks, but half of y’all muthafuckas is cutthroats/On the real, the streets will have you, guide you, lead you, grab you”) atop Fred Wreck’s undeniably lowrider-ready drums. The poignancy comes to a head on the reflective Dr. Dre duet “Imagine.” Alongside Dre’s equally stellar verse, and over Doc’s sweeping piano bed, Snoop ponders life in a different world (“Imagine if rap wasn’t out yet/Imagine all this pain with no outlet/Imagine how many lives would be ruined, if we didn’t have hip-hop/Imagine what we’d all be doing”).
While heart-attack seriousness is a plus, Snoop still rocks parties like none other, keeping the gin and juice flowing here. R. Kelly’s suave chorus, coupled with Nottz’s playful flutes, uplifts the hypnotic “That’s That Shit” to superiority, while Rick Rock’s minimalist 808s allow guests E-40, MC Eiht, Goldie Loc, Daz and Kurupt to serve up a surefire Western club closer in “Candy.” Just when Snoop seems worthy of flawless praise, on comes the questionably Ne-Yo–heavy “Put This Thang on You.” Over puny acoustics, this slow-jam debacle relegates Dogg to merely half a half-assed verse (“The mood is smooth, the price is right/I got a sweet in the street, we can shake it all night”). Similarly forgettable is the ho-hum “LAX,” an underwhelming collaboration with Ice Cube.

Once this blue carpet is all rolled up, though, so are any doubts of Snoop’s musical gangster. Without totally abandoning his commercial tendencies, the megacelebrity reminds listeners that, no matter how many hokey TV spots he does or slang words of his become cliché rhetoric, he’s an MC first and foremost. Tabernacle!—MATT BARONE

But now he’s a novelty rapper, comes with a few bangers now and then but this nigger really ain’t that hot. However listen to the nigger talk real shit and my nigger makes brothers think! Smart dude, but ain’t all that as a rapper,. for me anyway.

  • Civic

  • S on my chest

    Got this niggers shit and i was surprised at actually how good it was (bootlegg it though, it ain’t worth parting with hard earned cash), but my only beef is how much he goes on about westcoast westcoast! Wasn’t it not that long ago you were making songs with 50 (oh no, PIMP remix), Mixtapes (G-Unit 1 to whatever) and calling yourselves DPG-Unit. And you even use 50′s shit in this album. You were fine being friendly with everyone when the west was shit and you were alone, but now the situations starting to change your like “Id you ain’t from the west then fuckyou!”. Damn dawg, this doggs changing his spot. I respect this niggah but he needs to make up his mind about what he’s doing repping the west and forgetting the rest or repping hip hop as a whole, cus man you can’t do both.

  • drankallthadummyjuice510

    but its aiight fo a east coast or dirty south nigga to rep where they from though huh?????/ man take the snitch off yo chest punk bitch!!!!!!!!!! west coast all day!!!!!!!! oh yeah and fo whoeva hasnt realized it yet jay-z is watered the fuck down more than anyone else that nigga be rappin to beyonce beats c’mon nigga please!!!!

  • Murkk Gotti

    I’m feelin that joint you got with b-real and the other one with R.kelly. What up Snoop. Hold it down.

  • alltheserapperswatereddown

    Every rapper in the game is watered down.

  • alltheserapperswatereddown

    You stupid muthafuckas get mad when a nigga try to change their style up a little. I felt the R&G album, it was different, but cool. Yo, if you tired of hearing snoop do the doulbe -o- g bit, you’ve got to be tired of jigga with that h-o-v- shit, right? the nigga spell his name and sounds out every syllable at least 5 times on every track.

  • 11kap

    Snoop dogg is the pimpinnest gangsta nigga out. point blank period, hoes. that nigga stay funky on some ol’ fly shit constantly.

  • Doughboy da dancer

    yo snoop is da best aint nobody fuckin wit him he keep it crackin all day when niggaz got somethin to say do it in his face. all i got to say is snoop stay loc’in criiiiiiiiip!!!

  • WESTUP

    the west is BACK! but whoever said snoop is better than jay-z needs to get their fuckin face smashed

  • S on my chest

    alltheserapperswatereddown

    Ain’t nothing wrong with repping your set but is it love for everyone or fuck everyone it’s west coast only? Now he’s got someone to back him up (Gayme). Man fuck this hoe. The only thing watered down round here is your momma when niggers are pissing on the hoe. She loves that sining in the golden shower shit. And who you calling a bitch? Bitch!

  • Avenger

    The best snoop album was doggystyle after that he just been doing a few good songs but not good or great albums. Snoop gets over for his personality and distinct voice but his actual lyrics are kinda tired his voice just saves him. He has the kinda a voice that he could read off a menu and make it sound cool and he is smart enough to get strong producers so he is always good for about 2 to 3 bangers an album and the rest is just average. xxl reviews are lame how much does a xxl cost fellas first you dis the source now you are close to being them.

  • Tha Refried Mexican

    “His best work since DoggyStyle”? We’ll see. Vato was average at best! So the rest of the album must be off the hook

  • ~:~Fuck~WackWall~U~Can~Lick~Deez~BrownBallz~:~

    Pretty good review. Yall didn’t have to bash Snoop’s commercial hits, implying about his old days versus now. Snoop always said he loved all types of music, even country, and Willie Nelson. lol Snoop is a musiclover like Jay-Z, Pac (who liked Prince), and like most musicians. So don’t knock Snoop Dogg for that. On the last two tracks, Snoop was prolly bringing back that surreal gutter feel to rap with Ice Cube. Heck! That Ne-Yo joint was just to make the album more maturely a well-rounded projected. Don’t knock good music holmes. Stop tryna perpetrate the streets with hate on real emcees by trying to give these indie nuccas hope. If they that nice and good with the singles, they’d be where Snoop is at now. No hate on Cormega and The Firm getting back together, because I’m for that, but good music and pure lyricism is what real hip-hop really needs right now. Whether it’s commercial or underground, it doesn’t matter. An artist can’t go back and give you another one of Snoop’s “Gin & Juice” joints. Times change, and so has the Doggfather. Respect Snoop’s gangsta!

    I only have one question…
    Where the hell did most of you learn to write? 90% of the people who post on this site have absolutely no concept of writing in a lucid and direct manner. Have you ever thought about using commas, periods, question marks, or any of the other syntax and grammar tools that have been adopted by the english language to help articulate your mindless rhetoric and “beefs?”

    Here’s a suggestion…
    If you really want someone to get your point, do not write in your street slang. It isn’t near as effective, and it is very hard for the reader to comprehend (not that most of you really have anything important to say anyways).

    You are disgracing yourselves and the people who helped raise and mold you. You are disgracing the hip hopsters you are trying to defend by writing things that don’t convey a real message…just like every one of Chingy’s songs. hahaha

    Final thought…
    Use some sense when you write; you may just “school some niggas.”

    …yes I am an avid hip-hop listener and have been for many years. I have seen it evolve into the crap we see from most artists today. Test my knowledge if you must.

  • DRAMATIC

  • TheRefriedMexican

    Can’t believe Snoops Blue Carpet and Nas’ Hip Hop is dead both got “XL” Snoop album is way better.

  • Shank

    A classic West coast album that shows Snoop Dogg hasn’t lost it.

    The best track off the album has to be “Imagine” where Dre and Snoop are back doing what they used to do best, making raw Westcoast hip hop!!
