Worst snoop dogg album ever!!!

"even more worse than ego trippin.
he's making an album that doesnt appeal to his fanbase.
alot of snoop fans stopped buying snoops solo records starting from the 2002 release of "paid tha cost to be tha boss" and onwards.
from 2002 all the way to the present, he's been catering to the pop audience, and alienating his real fanbase.
when you only cater to the pop audience, you have to stay in fashion to them, and keep on switching up your style of music to whats hot in pop to stay relevant.
snoop is better off staying true to the westcoast gangsta rap sound, and people will buy his records for it.
hopefully these poor sales for the album mean that snoop gives up on tryin to make albums for the ladies, and goes back to his roots with a straight westcoast bangin gfunk style album like the old days. he'd most probably win back old fans and make new ones aswell. aint no real snoop fans tryna hear no lovey-dovey pop-rnb rap from snoop. think its about time he needs to stop trying to follow trends with pop, rnb & dirty south stuff, and represent your coast properly by making westcoast style rap music.
get it right snoop!
i wont hold my breath for this to happen tho"

"We all know what happened to Snoop. It's this mainstream crap where everyone has to cater to girls and sissys. Another thing you have to blame is California radio stations themselves won't play the west coast artist unless they don't sound like west coast artist. Snoop Dogg lately has done a better jobe as a featured artist for example The Game's 2nd album had "California Vacation." Thats the Snoop Doff real Snoop fans want to hear. Remember in the first Eastsidaz cd Snopp himself said, "youl never catch me going R&B,but you might catcg me in a 3 piece suit lookin way O.G." We been catchin Snoop going R&B for a loooong time now. The best song here is 2 Min. Warning and it's not even 2 min. The worse thing about this album is the artist he is featuring Soulja Boy and Lil Jon. What, he can't work with The Doggpound, Warren G, or Nate Dogg anymore?
Again he is not soley to blame I may not like it, but I understand. I have even seen guys going around bumpin Akon, Usher, and Justin Timberlake. Dont go around cruisin to that trying to act hard because in the 90's no way in hell did guys ever do that. What a bunch of sissys the young guys in this generation are turning out to be. Snoop c'mon 1 last album after this and do it DOGGYSTYLE. Just like THE DOGGFATHER would, you can do cuz you are the TOPDOGG. For the ones that was down with you from day 1 and not just when you did the stuff for the girls. My first cd was DoggyStyle and I know Snoop can really do it like he used to if he just felt like it. I dont mind his kid being in the 1st track, thats pretty cool I just want that real Snoop flavor we aint seen in a long time."
You can't teach an old Dogg new tricks

"Calvin Broadus (Snoop Dogg) has been releasing similar sounding work since the early 90s and for his most loyal of fans, that isn't a bad thing at all. If you're not familiar with the Snoop Dogg recipe, it reads as follows: take one part Snoop Dogg verse, add chorus by a guest artist, stir in a beat that repeats throughout, a pinch of name dropping for flavor, cook for 3-5 minutes. Serves 12-20 tracks.
For the choruses, Snoop Dogg has chosen a full list of has been, still are, and never will be artists. Lil Jon, R. Kelly, The Dream, Soulja Boy Tell `Em, and Brandy are just a few of the names. For their sake, I'll let them all assume they fall under the "still are" category. Although their additions to each track provide a unique change of pace on the record, the real classics on Malice `N Wonderland are the Snoop Dogg solo tracks which are a lot more similar to his earliest work than anything he has released recently.
"I Wanna Rock" and "2 Minute Warning" lead off the album after an intro from his son. Both tracks have some classic word play like "I'm gettin' Richard like Pryor" which Snoop Dogg used to be very famous for. If the whole album had kept the pace of the first two tracks, I would have loved this record, but after bringing in numerous guest artists, the remaining solo track of "That's Tha Homie" shows a newer and less creative side of Snoop Dogg, someone more concerned with fulfilling his swear word quota than creative rhyme schemes.
Snoop Dogg definitely wore out his book of rhymes with this release. By the end, you just have to accept the fact that there are only so many words that rhyme with "gangsta." He's not the same rapper he was when he was introduced by Dr. Dre in 1992, but when his old tricks shine through, and they occasionally do, his fans will be glad they bought the album.
