  • Summary: This self-proclaimed masterpiece from the veteran rapper features production work from The Neptunes. Other guests include Nelly, Bootsy Collins, and those old hip-hop standbys, The Bee Gees.

  1. A little bit less filler and the album would have really lived up to its name.
  2. Rhythm and Gangster is right up there with his best while being riskier than anything before it.
  3. It sure sounds good. [21 Nov 2004]
  4. It's as if he's making cameos in his own songs. [3 Dec 2004, p.87]
  5. R&G begs for a little more R and some cleverer G -- or, if Snoop really wanted to be bold, no G at all.
  6. R&G is about seven to eight tracks overweight, but appearances from Nelly, 50 cent and the album's closer won't disappoint.
  7. A sad stab at gimmicky duets with Justin Timberlake and obnoxious production by The Neptunes.
