  • Although he still sips gin & juice, Snoop Doggy Dogg shows a more conservative style in his lyrics on this follow-up to the popular and controversial DOGGYSTYLE. He has a lot more positivity to express, and a lot less to say about G's and ho's. Otherwise it's the same ol' Snoop, representing the same G-funk that made him the West Coast's most popular rapper, even though his original producer, Dr. Dre, is nowhere to be seen. Once again, he pays tribute to old-school hip-hop, this time with a remake of Biz Markie's "Vapors."
  • THA DOGGFATHER comes at a time when it is most needed. After Tupac Shakur's death and Dr. Dre's departure from Death Row Records, hip-hop's most successful label has been left with one man to carry on its legacy, and that man is THA DOGGFATHER. With one of the most distinct flows in rap, he returns to the forefront of hip-hop to quiet all the rumors that Death Row is a falling empire.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (11/29/96, p.90) - "...Even without Dr. Dre behind the board, Snoop and his studio team concoct an intoxicating blend of old-school funk and gangsta cool..." - Rating: B+

Muzik (1/97, p.118) - 3 out of 5 - "...a more angular, spiky, old school-influenced vehicle for the Dogg Father to strut his matter-of-fact rhymes over....you [are taken in] by the strength of the rhyming..."

Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #49 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's `Albums Of The Year.'
