You & Your Friends – Wiz Khalifa (feat. Snoop Dogg & Ty Dolla $ign): Song of the Day 7/21

Wiz Khalifa has shown unquestionable loyalty to his Taylor Gang brethren since jumping on the scene. But even Wiz sometime succumbs to his inner desires. That’s why even though he came out with his boys, Khalifa just wants to go home with “You & Your Friends”.

The brand new single from the long awaited project Blacc Hollywood, “You & Your Friends” takes advantage of yet another dope DJ Mustard beat. Joining Wiz are two of his closest, Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign, who both seem to be fine with Khalifa’s urges because they too are trying to wake up with “You & Your Friends”.

No Guns Allowed – Snoop Lion (feat. Drake & Cori B): Song of the Day 3/20

Growing up in the gangs of LA, Snoop Lion (a.k.a. Snoop Dogg) has been around numerous cases of gun violence. While Snoop may once have been a contributor to this epidemic, now that he has found the power of reggae, there are “No Guns Allowed” in Snoop’s world anymore.

Over simple, melodic reggae production, Snoop preaches one of his most powerful sermons to date. With his experience and memories, Snoop has seen enough violence caused by triggers and bullets and hopes to spur a change with this joint. With an introspective verse from Drake and a smooth addition from Cori B, Snoop’s daughter, “No Guns Allowed” may turn many opinions around concerning Snoop’s reggae transition.

Major Distribution – 50 Cent (feat. Snoop Dogg & Young Jeezy): Song of the Day 1/23

Back on the streets again, 50 Cent is trying to move some bricks. Bringing back memories on his latest single, 50 Cent is going hard once again for what will be one of the highlights of Street King Immortal.

Teaming up with Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy, 50 Cent has solidified quite the team for some “Major Distribution”. Over head-nodding production which really bangs the speakers, these three MC’s highlighted by 50’s opening verse are showing that just because they have been around the block a time or two does not mean they have lost a step. They still control the block.

Watch the official video for “Major Distribution” below.

Oh Yeah – Chris Brown (feat. 2 Chainz & Snoop Dogg): Song of the Day 6/15

Similarly to Breezy’s single “Don’t Wake Me Up”, Chris Brown released a version of “Oh Yeah” as a free single for his fans. Then weeks later, he rereleased the song with more bells and whistles. This time around, those bells and whistles include features from 2 Chainz and Snoop Dogg.

“Oh Yeah” which was produced by Drumma Boy will serve as a promo single for Breezy’s upcoming album Fortune and will not be included on the record. However, this joint is definitely album worthy. Aside from the lackluster verse from 2 Chainz, the production is solid, Breezy provides solid verses and a nodding chorus, and Snoop is simply Snoop.

Below are both the original version of “Oh Yeah” and the new and ‘improved’ version. Which one do you prefer?

Remain Calm – 50 Cent (feat. Snoop Dogg & Precious Paris): Song of the Day 4/28

Although G-Unit head man, 50 Cent, has been critisized about every album since his debut, his most recent mixtape The Big 10 reminded so many of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ that 50 has decided to release another mixtape on May 15.

The lead single from The Lost Tape, “Remain Calm”, brings together features from both 50’s past and present. Snoop Dogg drops some solid bars, reminding fans of his verse on “P.I.M.P”. Joining Snoop and 50 is Precious Paris, 50’s newest project, who will be soon battling it out with Nicki Minaj for top female in the game in the future.

Despite the features, 50 is the centerpiece on the  “Remain Calm” table. His sound continues to be reminisent of 2003 and his rise will continue if The Lost Tape is anything like this lead single.

Stoner’s Anthem – Snoop Dogg: Song of the Day 3/6

Snoop has released another single about that green? Who would have guessed?

There is no doubt that most of the world knows that Snoop Dogg is an avid weed smoker. Through his music over his long, illustrious career, he has tried to share this love starting with the west coast then across the states.

His latest release “Stoner’s Anthem” has Snoop sounding like he did back in the day. Like many other older rappers, Snoop has had to adapt to the game and switch up his style but to most their is no better Snoop than the old Snoop.

This mid-tempoed jam is the perfect song for Dogg-nation to just sit back and smoke to. Snoop has always known how to please his fans.

I Need A Doctor – Dr. Dre (feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey): Song of the Day 2/1

Where the hell is Detox? It seems like Dr. Dre fans have been asking that question for an eternity now. However, in the summer of 2011 it seemed like there was a light at the end of the Detox tunnel.

First the light started shinning with the release of Dre’s first single “Kush” featuring his longtime friend Snoop Dogg. Then, it seemed like we could reach out and touch the light when the Doctor released the album’s second single and today’s Song of the Day “I Need A Doctor”.

The song has Eminem and Skyler Grey admitting how much the need Dre and how much he has done for them, especially in Em’s case.

Video’s were released for both of these singles and it seemed inevitable that Detox was going to be released in 2011. However, as the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve, we were without the long awaited LP and it seems like we will be waiting even longer. There has been little information since the summer on the status of the album.

Will there ever be an end to the waiting?
