Dam Funk & Snoopzilla - 7 Days of Funk (Discussion Thread)
« on: December 13, 2013, 04:22:18 AM »
 So i picked up my copy earlier today and just gave it a good bump cranked full blast through my beats by dre.
 I gotta say, its pretty fucking dope and its certainly pretty fucking funky!
 Quite enjoyed it.
 I guess my only complaint is that it is an E.P as opposed to an L.P.
 The closest thing that Snoop has done to a gangsta/g-funk album in some time.
 If he could do a whole album like this with more rapping than singing with some kokane, lil half dead, Soopafly and the like i would be very happy.
 Nate dogg would've been great on this too.
 I will most likely give it another listen tonight and i will most def play it at my BBQ tomorrow.
 Who bought this?
 I dont buy E.p's that often but this gives me hope for the next Snoop L.P.

i like EPs, exactly like Snoop said in some latest interview that you won't find no filler on a 30 min record, and it makes you want more

The EP is tight, been bumpin it on and off since Tuesday. I don't think I've enjoyed a Snoop cd this much since Tha Last Meal, a full lenth LP entirely produced by Dam-Funk would be dope! The only thing I'd like to see if they ever did an LP would be to have other funk-type singers on there like Kokane (Koke can spit too) and Latoya Williams, it would be a good idea to throw some real singers into the mix; Snoop singing on the EP worked since it's short but I think it would be hard to listen to a full album with him doing the singing. Some features that could sound good over some funky Dam production could be DJ Quik (maybe doing some talkbox too), Suga Free, E-40. It would be cool if a full album happened, who knows if it will though. But what they did with EP was great, especially for Snoop, I already knew Dam-Funk would do his thang but wasn't too sure about Snoopy (he'd been letting me down with his last several albums), but Snoop came through on this one. The Kurupt & Dogg Pound features were coo, although for an EP I don't think it was totally necessary but still coo.

 Yeah i would'nt want a whole album with too much Snoop singin. I agree about Kokane and Dj quik and latoyia had crossed my mind also, same with warren-g.
 Iam looking forward to putting it on later but iam sure it will be considered too soft from some of my mates lol.

one of my favorite albums of the year, well probably the best of the year IMO.  Snoop and Dam really hooked up something nice.  Im surprised its not getting more love on this site.

 Yeah iam surprised also. The album has a good feel and vibe that goes all the way through. No down south or songs that dont fit in. I guess another example of how an E.P can be good, in that regard.

Got the EP yesterday and really, really like it after a couple of listens. "Do My Thang" is my jam, that one's awesome. Don't like the Kurupt feature on "Ride" at all, he's all over the place with his flow and didn't catch the beat at all. Daz did good on "Systamatic" and Kurupt was much better than on "Ride". I don't think Daz and Kurupt really added something to the EP. I think I would enjoy the EP some more without the DP features, but it's still good. I like Daz and Kurupt as rappers, but I looked forward to a Dam-Funk & Snoop project and now they put the DP on 25 % of the EP (that's what having 8 tracks does to people, still complaining). ;D

Overall a great project and it leaves me looking forward to something more. Really hope they will do another project in the future.

There is an exclusive track on the iTunes version named "High Wit Me", which is like a Snoop (the rapper) solo track. I also saw that StonesThrow will release a limited vinyl release with instrumental to all tracks and another exclusive track named "Wingz" next year. I'm sure that's the track they've played on one of the feature clips, that one sounded dope. Hopefully some day we will have a rip of those instrumentals and that track. That's it for now, I'm going to bump "Do My Thang" now...  8)

Are they selling this in stores or just online?   At Target or Best Buy?

 I imported my copy from a small little cd store, i doubt the big stores here would have it?

 I played the album at mt BBQ last night. I dont think it was overly noticed though, everyone drinking and talking plus very short album, but there were some heads noddin.
 "do my thang" seemed to be a well received track. Plus the beat on "faden away"
 I put the video for "hit tha pavement" on later. Seemed peopel more just laughed at Snoops hair more than anything though lol.
 It was too soft for some of my more "underground" hip hop head mates, even though this is pretty underground.

 Hey at least everyone didnt say it was wack as fuck or average like most people did when i put on Eminems new album.

Got my copy from iTunes.  "Do My Thang" and "Hit Da Pavement" are great.  "Let It Go' is also very good.  And like some others said, Kurupt didnt fit well on "Ride".  That beat was way too smooth for Kurupt to get on there and spit all that nonsense.

The whole EP is dope to me! Sounds the best in the car rather than headphones/computer/phone. Dogg POund fit on there, Systamatic is a good one. Better a DP feature than Miley Cyrus and others that were on that SNoop Lion CD.

I'm not sure if Best Buy or Target have it, I got my copy from a local record store, Zia Records (they're smalled but a lot better). When I got it, it also came with a free cassette single, Hit Da Pavement and Hit Da Pavement Instrumental on Side A with Faden Away and Faden Away Instrumental on Side B. I thought that was old school and cool as shit for it to come with that!

 I guess there were alot of other threads leading up to the release, including the one where the album was up for stream.
 After a couple of listens i think the rap to singing ratio would be about 60-40. Dont remember that well though.
