I thought Blue Carpet Treatment had more filler than Doggumentary.

Yeah I agree. BTC is marginally better overall but there's loads of filler on it


Snoop is done anyway. Not expecting much tbh

Yeah, maybe I will have to go back and check out Blue Carpet Treatment, because I think it had a lot of Dre production and DOC was even around...

but.. like what was said above I miss having a Snoop album you could bang from front to back.  The Last Meal was the last Snoop album I could bump from front to back.  Unless you count albums like the Wide Awake Haven't You Heard LBC Crew album, I thought was solid beggining to end.  Really enjoyed that release, and if they did nothing else, at least Wide Awake did that.

Can't believe I forgot the snoop lion project.   I really felt that was a great project top to bottom, video and album.  Going on a journey with snoop in his spiritual quest I really felt that.  It is also the album that really helped me bond with my son, and just like I fell in love with hiphop upon first seeing snoop on the "wit a dre day" video my son, a generation later got into snoop thru the reincarnation album.   I will never forget the day we we first got the album and listened to it on the way to the royals baseball game and then the next morning he went and told his teacher he loved Snoop and that snoop was his favorite rapper.  I was so proud of my son.

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

"Dead Man Walkin" is a compilation of old Snoop Dogg songs. I wouldn't call it a solo.

When it's previously unreleased material, it's generally not referred to as a compilation.. It's an unofficial solo put out by suge.

Sure, you can call it a "solo", but it's a compilation of unreleased songs that were recorded for different projects that somebody decided to put together and release.

Since suge put it out, sure .. But you can say that about any album almost, because a lot of times, albums don't consist only of material recorded specifically for that album. You compile the best tracks and put out the best product possible, whether it was recorded wit the album in mind or not .. So really, every album is a compilation of tracks. To compile just means to put together .. But suge released it as the album snoop was meant to put out on death row following doggfather. I count it as a snoop album, and most def count smokefest as one since snoop put that out himself.

Yeah, i feel you, but some of the songs on "Dead Man Walkin" were supposed to be on "Tha Doggfather". "Hit Rocks" was supposed to be on the LBC Crew album. "Head Doctor" was a Swoop G song. "C-Walkin" was remade by Big Hutch. "Midnight Love" was supposed to be on that EP that you're talkin' about, but it didn't end up on "Dead Man Walkin" though.

Plus, Snoop Dogg basically released independently his "SmokeFest" compilation which was previously an shelved Death Row project, just like "Doggumentary" EP. Some of the previously unreleased tracks which appeared in "Dead Man Wakin" (Snoop Doggy Dogg As His Best) and the Death Row Greatest Hits came from this era. Everybody can say, now, that Death Row was still dead but "Until The End Of Time", "Dead Man Walkin", "Snoop Doggy Dogg Greatest Hits" or "Tha Dogg Pound 2002" were quality compilations released by Death Row, still alvi thanks to his vault. But yeah, just like compilations.

And relapse was a compilation of tracks intended for detox .. It doesn't make it any less of a solo album.

Yeah, but the Top Dogg album was near classic as well.  I'd say Last Meal and Top Dogg were equal.  Snoop had a nice resergence in those days with another near classic being the 1rst Eastsidaz album sandwhiched in between
