Snoop Doggy Dogg, 'The Lost Sessions Vol. 1' (Death Row)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Thomas Golianopoulos

As shameless cash-in compilations go, this latest set of unreleased Snoop outtakes (from his 1992–96 tenure at Suge Knight's label) is remarkably egregious. There are recycled verses, D-grade G-funk, and five tracks credited to "Producer Unknown." Sure, Dr. Dre worked on four songs, but only "Eat a Dick" boasts a pulse. Snoop himself is even slacking. Before his current family-friendly fizzle-fashizzle incarnation, the D-O double-G was lithe, smooth, and menacing. But here, he lacks both wit and charm; "Put It in Your Mouth" is just plain loathsome.
