Snoop Dogg Discusses "Doggystyle" Samples On Mixtape

For the twentieth anniversary of the release of his landmark "Doggystyle" album, Snoop Dogg discusses the samples used to create the LP on his "Doggystyle: The Samples" mixtape.

Snoop Dogg’s landmark debut album, Doggystyle, was released 20 years ago today (November 23). To celebrate the milestone, the Long Beach rapper, going as DJ Snoopadelic, has released Doggystyle: The Samples, a mixtape that features the original recordings sampled by Dr. Dre to make Doggystyle.

Snoop Dogg provides commentary throughout the 54-minute mixtape, explaining how the Doggystyle songs came together, including the music, chorus and concept for “Gin And Juice,” among others.

“To give ya’ll a treat, we’re gonna give you some of the samples that we sampled to make the record, so you can hear where we got a lot of that music from, the original music that inspired Doggystyle, produced by Dr. Dre,” Snoop Dogg says in a video teasing the release of the mixtape.

The video also shows Snoop Dogg placing 45s on turntables and working in the studio.

Daz, who rapped and worked on some of the music on Doggystyle, also provides commentary in the video, explaining the origins of “W Balls,” among other things.

Kendrick Lamar and Nipsey Hussle are among those who have praised Doggystyle. "I’m definitely influenced by that album," Lamar said in a recent interview. "The structure. The cohesiveness. The skits. The flow. The melodies Snoop kicked. The raw raps. There wouldn’t be a Kendrick Lamar without Doggystyle. [What stood out about the album] was its sound. Albums that last that long have their own sound. It was nothing duplicated, that’s why it stood out. It was that G-Funk."

    Negros didn't invent hip hop: it was the white man. Mel Gibson is the true inventor of this art form. One day while walking down the street, Mr Gibson was cornered in an alley and jumped by a gang of burly black man. One of those men was known as Africa Bambatta. He stole some poetry that he was writing for an English literature class along with a demo tape. He planned on reciting poetry to the beat of fast paced drums, but sadly, that tape was destroyed and now his dream and discovery(along with the truth) will never see fruition. Now, thanks to the laziness & shiftlessness of the black man, rap music is being used as a severe copout to escape their life in the ghetto instead of working hard, going to college, and earning a degree.

    This really shows how much they totally bit off these samples...I mean it is what it is...but I think one of the greatest records of all time isn't as creative as you once thought.

    this is extremely dope... you don't think so you must be under young or retarded. And if you hate snoop you got something wrong with you...nobody kept it more G than him.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Snoop is like an author with writer's block. That nigga can spit. We see it here. He's a real nigga. But he just got too commercial and scripted. Then again, I'm 31 so I remember when stupid ass white christians bought his records out and steam-rolled them. Saw it on the news. Then this nigga came out like nothing we had ever seen before. He got old, corny and predictable. I still love him and appreciate what he did, though.

  • So f*ckin' what...

    Rather get the behind the scenes of this from the dude that actually PRODUCED IT... not like he's busy finishing DETOX!!!!

      Kizman, ive seen you post that exact same post but with Suge Knight and also The Game

    • Kizman

      If your not from our state... Snoop actually drives around by himself in a low rider. If you drive around long enough you will seem him around most hoods in So Cal. I dont know of any other famous person who goes around with that much respect. Don't get Pimp slapped!!!
