reagae is good music (roots, dub or ragga/dancehall), thing is Snoop doesnt really know how to do it

It's the fact he's using poducers like diplo instead of hooking up with artists like Jimmy Cliff


whats wrong with Jimmy Cliff?

You misunderstand. I mean Snoops working with a white DJ instead of a Reggae legend like Jimmy Cliff

Anyway Jimmy Smith was just an example. At least reach out to Barrington Levi for a start. Snoop and him must be cool still.

Yeah Snoops in the same position as Kurupt and Eminem right now. Except Snoop was never as talented as either in their prime.

I love Snoop, but this is all I can think of with this change. It is so fitting.

This is a stupid move by snoop and I would think disrespectful to real Rastafarians who take the religion seriously. Snoops done smoked himself retarded to believe he Is reincarnated to bob marley a true legend of music and a martyr for his beliefs.I understand feeling bobs spirit his music along with others like pac deliver a concious real message.  Snoop lion or Simba the lion king be real about it and don't make a mockery of a dead legend or a religion because your 40 and confused with your life.

Sad but true. Funny how a lot of his latter smashes were Radio tracks. Snoop stopped working with mainstream creative teams and he wonders why he's not getting air play now?

It's a good thing that he makes a pause in HipHop, and he's beginning to change his subjects on his songs
So on the next album, maybe Dre will want to make it with a more serious and focused Snoop

I think its just time to move on for Snoopy... I mean, I put him in the same sphere as Nas, Jay-Z, and ...   hmm anyone left from that era, that big, on the West?  These guys still have it in them, to put out good music, but their fan bases are grown, just as they are.  Rap is a young man's game and its time for a change to be relevant.  We all know how cool rappin about blunts, cars, and bitches sounds from a 50 year old man  ???

Listening to the new Nas but dam, this shit isn't gonna sell millions, or be as big as it would've been 15 years ago.  Still quality though. 

As for Soop Lion, I'll give it a listen, I like reggae (don't follow it), and will withhold my judgments until the album drops and I can hear it as a piece of music, NOT hype.

Right, however the reason why artists like Nas, Jay-Z etc are and still will be relevant is because as their audience grew and they grew, so did their content. Nas is rapping about stuff that a so called grown man can relate to but like you said how cool can rappin' about blunts, cars and bitches at 40-50 sound? I get it if he's tired of it but my thing is if he really wanna challange himself why not try to make an album with more content instead? I think the problem with cats like Snoop is that he has become such a character now to a point where they would probably never accept that from him. His audience is huge yet his album sales aren't. One reason for that is because they like Snoop the persona/character more than Snoop the artists these days.

The sad thing is the beats don't sound too bad but he woulda been better off rapping over them and maybe have hooks with a reggae vibe

Yea this is true.  I was listening to Nas' "Daughters" and that's definitely fitting for him, and he does a good job with the song which I think even youngins could understand.  Snoop is definitely a character, or as actors say, typecasted.

If Snoop wants to do this then that's cool, after all, he's been around long enough and established himself enough to be able to experiment musically with different styles.  But personally I'm not that interested in anything Snoop does nowadays.  I don't mind though because he's dropped enough decent material over the years for me to listen to and he remains in my personal top 5 rappers of all time.

I think it's just another fad. Either way Snoop'll release 2 more wack albums and he'll go back to his "gangsta rap roots" and drop a decent album ala NLTD & BCT. I hope...

Am I the only one not disappointed in this? Snoop's rapping has sucked lately. Maybe its a long shot, but a reggae album might improve the sound of his music. The beats should be better and there won't be any pop rap songs like the garbage that was Wet.
