Snoop Dogg "Gin & Juice" (1994)
Producer: Dr. Dre
Label: Interscope Records, Death Row Records
West Coast rap has been appropriated in the worst way possible. Any braggadocio and social commentary being told becomes moot when juxtaposed with white bread office jockeys trying to live vicariously through gangster rap. Case in point: "Gin & Juice." How many lame dudes did you know that sang "with my mind on my money and my money on my mind" while making multiple copies of expense reports while wearing a clip-on tie and short-sleeved button down? SMH.
