Snoop dogg, Doggumentary

Billed somewhat baffingly as the sequel to his 1993 debut album Doggystyle, Snoop Dogg’s eleventh offering is a sprawling long player comprised of 21 tracks and more guest appearances than a late-night chat show.

There’s plenty of fun to be had here, not least because some of the collaborations – Superman featuring Willie Nelson or Snoop Dogg vs David Guetta on the explicit Wet – look bonkers on paper but actually work
a treat.

Snoop also successfully mines his gangsta rap roots via the excellent My Fucn House (with Young Jeezy) and Boom (with T.Pain) but not even Bootsy Collins can save the P-Funk throwdown of Toyz N Da Hood. Too many lazy tracks like this dilute Doggumentary’s overall power.
