Station: Radio 1 DJ: Tim Westwood Best Punchline: “Ah, I'm somewhat brain-boggled, so I look to the microphone and slowly start to wobble/It's S-N-Double-O straight to the P/Last four letters are D-O-Double-Geee/I'm the smoothest/I proved this/Many years ago.” (Snoop Dogg)
Dr. Dre ushered Snoop Dogg into the music industry, so it was only right that Snoop paid it forward, and introduced the world to Tha Dogg Pound. Back when Death Row was running this rap shit, Snoop, Daz and Kurupt traveled to London touching down with the UK's No. 1 rap representer Tim Westwood.
Although most of the lyrical heavy lifting was handled by Snoop, they all ripped the “Deep Cover” instrumental. But when Westwood dropped Tribe's "Award Tour" instrumental, the freestyling went to another level. Kurupt's performance made it evident that he'd be a force to be reckoned with on the lyrical tip, while Daz brought a fun-but-gangsta vibe to the beat that he rode so eloquently.
