Snoop Dogg - No Limit Top Dogg (1999)


It pisses me off when I hear people say that Snoop fell off and disregard everything he did after Doggystyle. Yeah, The Doggfather was lazy, incomplete, and forced for record sales by Suge Knight, but a poor album doesn't mean that an artist is done. Snoop escaped the negativity and huge expectations of the crumbling Death Row empire and joined the swole No Limit roster. At this point in his career, nobody was expecting much from Snoop and he didn't have anything to prove either and this gives him plenty of relaxed room to do what he does best. After one album with No Limit, Snoop gets real comfortable and goes straight for a very natural West coast feel and absolutely wrecks shit lyrically and rhythmically for the entire hour and 20 minutes. There's no reason you shouldn't listen to this great album.
