THE END OF THE “DOGG”

It looks like this is farewell to the old S-n-double o-p D-o-double g!

 As you may have heard today marks a sad day in Hip Hop history, as the man once affiliated with Charlie Brown’s best friend has chosen to abandon the “Dogg” moniker (while keeping the “Snoop”) in favor of “Lion” (not sure if this is really a Mac OSX Lion advertisement or not). The West Coast rap stalwart has had a musical change of heart, not only switching his name, but his genre as well – taking on Reggae with his forthcoming album “Reincarnation.”

 With that in mind, here’s a tribute to the old “Uncle Snoop” and his nearly 20 year contribution to the rap game – from teaching us how to “keep it G” to dropping it like it’s hot. My top 10 Snoop Dogg videos (in no particular order):

“Beautiful”

“I Wanna Rock”

“Drop It Like It’s Hot”

“Candy (Drippin’ Like Water)”

“Gin and Juice”

“Snoop’s Upside Ya Head”

“Who Am I? (What’s My Name)”

“Young, Wild and Free”

“2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted”

“Ain’t Nothing But a G Thang”

Last, but not least, here’s a picture of just how far Mr. Broadus Jr. has come since Dr. Dre showed us his talents!
