    9 Classic Death Row Records Albums That Should Be in Your Collection

    Death Row Records is one of the most iconic records labels of all-time of any genre. The label had acts like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Dogg Pound, 2Pac and many others. Death Row Records have released some of the greatest hip hop albums ever. Death Row Records became a household name back in 1992 when Dr. Dre dropped the Chronic.

    Snoop Dogg Still A G Thang for Throwback Thursday

    It was just announced yesterday that we have a legendary Verzuz coming up next week. We have Snoop Dogg taking on DMX, which should be good and entertaining at the same time. Snoop and DMX are two of the greatest rappers to ever pick up a mic. With today being Thursday, we’re getting closer to the weekend. My playlist this week consisted of the new albums from Lil Baby and Run the Jewels, plus Volume 6 of my 2Pac B-Day Mix. We also played the Tear the Club Up Thugs, the debut joint from Jodeci and Too Short’s Can’t Stay Away. Overall, this was a great week, but with the…

    Snoop Dogg Rhythm & Gangsta Released 15 Years Ago

    As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release for The Chronic 2001, Snoop Dogg has an anniversary also. 15 years ago today, Snoop Dogg dropped R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece. This was Snoop’s 7th solo album and his second project on his own label. The first single was a classic track featuring Pharrell called Drop It Likes It’s Hot. The Neptunes produced a lot of Snoop because this album was also a part of their Star Trak label. Drop It Like It’s Hot went gold and the ringtone went double platinum. The reason I’m mentioning ringtone is because it was one of the few I had on my…
