Jul 7, 2016Casting such a wide net over the span of 20 songs ends up being a gift and a curse as the brighter moments risk getting dimmed out by extremely ambitious attempts that fall short. Running so long ensures filler and repetitive topic material, but overall Snoop makes a strong case against ageism as he fuses the adult contemporary and Gangsta Rap genres.
Jul 7, 2016Solo albums like 1993’s Doggystyle and 1996’s Tha Doggfather cemented his reputation as one of the hardest in the business, which has allowed him the freedom to be as brash as he wants to be. On Coolaid, Snoop uses that solid footing and wastes no time taking it back to the G-funk era with “Ten Toes Down”.
Jul 27, 2016Consider this an exciting double-LP throwback that drops "Even if I die, living legend" during the opening cut and then just gets bigger and bolder from there.
Jul 7, 2016The weightless Light It Up and the Missy/Timbaland throwback Got Those are better, but ultimately length scuppers Coolaid. Its back half loses coherence as Snoop retreats to a default of weed anthems.
Jul 20, 2016The Swizz Beatz-assisted "Let Me See Em Up," "Light it Up" and "Let the Beat Drop (Celebrate)" rarely do much to stand apart from filler. These occasional misses aren't enough to water down the entirety of Coolaid, though, with Snoop's return to G-funk proving refreshing enough to keep listeners' thirst quenched.
Jul 7, 2016We get a strong dose of the old school Snoop we love and know while getting a little taste of the more distinguished Doggfather who we hope will eventually provide tracks filled with more wisdom and less weed. Don’t count on the latter though.
Jul 25, 2016With Coolaid, arguably Snoop’s first real hip-hop album in half a decade, we find his reinvention back into “Rapper Snoop” to be a bit wobbly.

Jul 17, 2016Snoop Dogg hasn't been able to rap in a LOOOONG time. Same s*it from back in the days. No increased technique, no new vocab and certainly noSnoop Dogg hasn't been able to rap in a LOOOONG time. Same s*it from back in the days. No increased technique, no new vocab and certainly no new ideas. This album is the proof of these things. Now, don't get me wrong, he's a legend in the game but now a days, he SUUUUCKS. Even if he's on a feature his game is the worst. Just cuz' I don't like it doesn't mean I'm hating on him. But I hate this album.… Expand
