Best Album of the 90's? Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle

Snoop Doggy Dogg, as he was known then, burst on the scene in the early 1990's as the smooth voice and hardcore rhymes who always seemed to be with Dr. Dre. The two paired up and had a lot of success with singles on the radio, consistently reaching top spots on the billboard charts.

Snoop wasted no time dropping a solo album to cement his status as a young elite in the rap music world. The year was 1993 and Snoop released Doggystyle. Success came quickly and the album would certainly go down as a classic. The album features slow, heavy beats and use of synthesizers. It can be described as gangsta rap with its violent and brutally honest lyrics, but the sound is definitely distinct. The genre is G-Funk and it uses classic sounds and samples with hardcore beats creating a whole new feeling and sound most have never heard.

Upon its release, Doggystyle pleased many. Critics liked Snoop Doggy Dogg's efforts as well. Rolling Stone & Entertainment Weekly had great things to say and sales were great. Snoop would never again be just another person in this world. Doggystyle gave him fame and he never looked back.

Doggystyle is known as an essential and a classic among rap/hip-hop fans. It is a leader and is why things like "gangsta rap", and "west coast rap" are known today. If you are one of the unfortunate ones who has not picked up the album, you need to. Especially if you like rap or popular 90's music.
