    A whole new snoop, singing rather than rapping, reggae sounds instead of hip hop beats, and yet the masterclass artist has pulled it off magnificently. Full Review »

    Much like will.i.am's atrocious solo LP "#willpower", Snoop Dog has failed to pretend. He's failed to pretend to be someone else. You know, I thought It was that artists should be original, and experimental on building their own sound, but most mainstream pop and hip hop is trying to knock off as many other popular new artists as possible. No snoop, you're not Bob Marley, and you're not the next coming of him, either. You're too high. Full Review »

    Well, this album was a surprise. First, there was the name change, then a confirmed duet with Miley Cyrus and then the announcement that the album was going to be reggae. Eh? Well, this bewildering collection of information resulted in one of the most surprising albums I've reviewed this year. Snoop has done a complete 180 and is suddenly all about peace and love in this album that's bursting with pure Caribbean sunshine. Starting off with the epic Rebel Way, already my expectations were high and were fufilled as track after track went by. There's traditional reggae tracks like Here Comes The King, So Long, Fruit Juice, La La La and Harder Times, more modern ones like The Good Good and a throwback to his old style (but much more peaceful) in the form of Lighters Up. I especially appreciate his heartfelt call for peace in No Guns Allowed. The only downsides were the Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus collaborations. Other than that, this was thoroughly enjoyable and put a big smile on my face. Definitely get the deluxe version as all the tracks there are good. Now, a lot of fans have come down hard on Snoop for this album, calling him fake and saying he's betrayed his fans by changing his style. Well, I agree that those collabs with popstars was a bad idea, but his conversion to a new way of life and making an album to coincide with that seems genuine. And I believe an artist should challenge themselves and their fans too. This album was risky and I keep seeing negative reviews everywhere and I think it's so unwarranted. Very few rappers make albums about happiness and harmony. It's refreshing to hear a mainstream rapper, especially Snoop, of all people, sing songs that have absolutely nothing to do with bragging about how much money and hos they have. If he keeps making albums like this, I might consider myself a fan and I know I'll be playing Reincarnated all summer. Make the music you feel like making in your heart, Snoop, and let the haters hate. Full Review »
