Snoop Dogg has not really been out of the public eye for quite awhile now, but its refreshing to have him back in his element. Fresh off his acquisition of Death Row records, and Super Bowl appearance, he has released an impressive full-length album BODR (Back on Death Row). Although it lacks a bit of cohesion given is wide array of guest appearances, its still prototypical, LBC Snoop. What really helps this project are the contributions of veteran LA producers as DJ Battlecat and Soopafly. There’s a nice balance of party cuts, mobb music and unity tracks that will add to this albums longevity. It would be nice to have some Dogg Pound, or Dre involvement, but we can’t be picky. Its just good to have the real Snoop back.
