EDITORS’ NOTES

Few elder statesmen in rap carry clout on the level of Uncle Snoop, his contributions to the genre containing seemingly countless certified classics. Even when he experiments with reggae, gospel, or straight-up pop, he inevitably returns to hip-hop to bless listeners with gangsta wisdom and that irrepressible charm. Despite being comprised entirely of new songs, I Wanna Thank Me feels like a retrospective of the Snoop Dogg catalog, at least thematically if not spiritually. He references the G-Funk era with sentimental if somewhat bittersweet pride on “Let Bygones Be Bygones,” while living up to his modern-day status as a cannabis celebrity alongside frequent collaborator Wiz Khalifa on “Take Me Away.” Reaching back before his own time in the spotlight on the Marley-sampling “So Misinformed,” he teams with golden-era icon Slick Rick to ponder the legacy of slavery and the corresponding diaspora. With features by R&B crooners Chris Brown and the late Nate Dogg, música urbana stars Anitta and Ozuna, and contemporary LA talents RJmrLA and YG, the choice of guests here reflects history as much as what’s happening now.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

It ain’t Doggystyle..

He’ll never make another Doggystyle, but it’s still a GREAT album!! He’s not the old Snoop he’s grown, and you can tell by his music... I like all of the tracks.. except the one with Lil Duval..

yall are soooo Crazy

The King of the coast has spoken, what are yall looking ? for some of yall to give this one star is crazy- Snoop really goes in honest and reflectful on this one. He gives you game and fun at the same time, with his celebrity status he has to straddle a bit to satify is other fan, he's not hood anymore hes GLOBAL.. Let that sink in for a min !!!! He still gives the west coast feel, I'm a philly cat... Snopp is still the King of the coast,.
