ANDERSON .PAAK – OXNARD

Anderson. Paak’s new album ‘Oxnard’ was mixed and produced by Dr. Dre.  As such, it positively oozes West Coast.  It’s Los Angeles in the late afternoon heat, it’s palm trees on the eponymous Oxnard Beach, and its sound is every bit as in and of the area as any work of Snoop Dogg or N.W.A. …

SNOOP DOGG – BADBADNOTGOOD

‘Lavender‘ first found life as a Kaytranada-assisted track on BadBadNotGood’s latest album ‘IV‘.  It was sufficiently eery back then, but producer Nightfall has amplified things in that regard, and a new video starring Snoop Dogg and a load of clowns pushes things over the edge.  Apparently, Snoop heard the track when an engineer played it…

SNOOP DOGG & PHARRELL WILLIAMS – BUSH

Snoop Dogg  and Pharrell Williams present ‘Bush’; a Funk-laden album entirely produced by the latter, and which is rumoured to be Snoop’s last.  We absolutely love the concept and visuals for this album [see ‘Peaches N Cream‘ and ‘So Many Pros‘] but now it’s here we’re not sure it’s quite lived up to our expectations.  It…

RAEKWON – FLY INTERNATIONAL LUXURIOUS ART

Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon has been dropping hints about new album ‘Fly International Luxurious Art’ since at least before 2013’s ‘It’s My Thing‘.  Now that it’s finally here, we’re treated to some pretty grandiose beats, as well as contributions from Busta Rhymes, A$AP Rocky, 2Chainz, Ghostface Killah, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross.  It’s a pretty mixed bag…

SNOOP DOGG & PHARRELL – PEACHES N CREAM [VIDEO]

After releasing the first single from their upcoming collaborative album ‘BUSH’, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams release a visual accompaniment to ‘Peaches N Cream‘.  The smooth, G-Funk heavy track also features the vocal talents of Charlie Wilson.  The new video for the track is filled with Funky, futuristic imagery, and sees Snoop deliver his bars both…

KENDRICK LAMAR – TO PIMP A BUTTERFLY

Originally billed for a March 23 release, Kendrick Lamar surprises fans by releasing his new album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ a week early.  The album has a strong West Coast G-Funk influence throughout [which a Snoop Dogg feature only serves to strengthen!], and features previously released tracks ‘i‘, ‘The Blacker The Berry‘ and ‘King Kunta‘.…
