    This album is not Snoop's best, but it is still Snoop. Doggumentary is essentially an album made up of singles, and it covers all bases from Pop (Wet, Boom ft. T-Pain etc.) to some LA rap even, *gasp*, "Country"
    (Superman ft. Willie Nelson). For real Snoop fans, myself included, Gangbang Rookie (ft. Pilot), El Lay, Take U Home and Eyez Closed. Take U Home features Too $hort, Daz and
    This album is not Snoop's best, but it is still Snoop. Doggumentary is essentially an album made up of singles, and it covers all bases from Pop (Wet, Boom ft. T-Pain etc.) to some LA rap even, *gasp*, "Country"
    (Superman ft. Willie Nelson). For real Snoop fans, myself included, Gangbang Rookie (ft. Pilot), El Lay, Take U Home and Eyez Closed. Take U Home features Too $hort, Daz and Kurupt, which definitely brings back memories of Dre's "the Chronic", but this particular song has a new feel to it and I seem to be one of the few who enjoys it. The best song on this album has to be Gangbang Rookie. It has a great beat (beats are one of the few things that shine through on this album) and the young "Pilot" adds a new dimension to Snoop's flow on this track. For those looking for more Doggystyle, this isn't it, but Doggumentary does have some merits, and for those keen for some new Snoop, I would suggest just picking a couple of singles instead. 5/10.

    Every time I listen to this album I get really annoyed, not because of lack of quality, but because the quality that does exist is completely ruined by the mainstream crap that comes right after it. The album is way too long, ironic thing is as well that half of the album is great, half is trash, the LP should have been cut in half, I mean You go from Gangbang Rookie (Great) to the likesEvery time I listen to this album I get really annoyed, not because of lack of quality, but because the quality that does exist is completely ruined by the mainstream crap that comes right after it. The album is way too long, ironic thing is as well that half of the album is great, half is trash, the LP should have been cut in half, I mean You go from Gangbang Rookie (Great) to the likes of Boom and Platinum (Absolute trash). It's actually very sad because when Snoop hits the mark, he's better than he has been for over 15 years and then before you know it, you're listening to Wet (Which is right up there with the worst of them!) A big chance missed hear Snoop, THANK GOD he didn't stick with calling it Doggystyle 2. Expand

    As such, like Blue Carpet Treatment, Doggumentary is an album that reminds us all why we like Snoop so much, and pleases us through his taste for good music more than his talent for good rhymes.
  2. He barely has to try and, to be honest, here it shows.

    Snoop has been paying dues for two decades and change now, so he's earned the right to be a brand, an icon, a television star and most of all a rap legend. "Doggumentary" won't tarnish the polish on his O.G. status.
