I was very impressed when I saw him live like 10 years ago. He sounded great and naturally dope. and he’s a rapper’s rapper when he wants to be. Most rappers don’t have anywhere near his range and yeah, he’s got a mountain of jamming songs.
Music discussion like this is a struggle. Some artists try like hell to make excellent albums. Others try to make sure they have good songs and the albums can vary. Is one better than the other? And even if it is, is an act with 3 grand albums and then nothing else better than an act with 1 unanimous classic but 100 other good songs across 20 albums? Of course, it depends. What are the expectations? I struggle with all of that and I just end up trying to enjoy whatever I think the artist is trying to do. D’Angelo is trying to make supreme albums. Snoop is trying to keep on jamming and being a part of jams. They’ve both succeeded in my opinion.
Regardless, Snoop is excellent and has been off and on for 30 years. That’s gotta count for something. And don’t start me on how jamming the 213 album and R&G are TILL THIS DAY.
