Label: Death Row/Interscope Records Worst Song: "Freestyle Conversation"
BAD BEATSOUT OF STEPHARDCORE FAIL
2Pac was dead. Dr. Dre had left Death Row. And gangsta rap—and the West Coast as a whole—was on the decline. The only thing keeping it afloat? The idea that Snoop could somehow manage to match the energy of his 1993 debut, Doggystyle, without the help of the good Doctor. Wishful thinking. Snoop could clearly still rap his ass off, but Doggfather was a complete mess soncially and didn't even come close to matching the success of Doggystyle. Snoop eventually bounced from his label Death Row and ended up at No Limit and eventually, years later, he was able to bounce back.
