The 50 Greatest Debut Albums in Hip-Hop History

6. Snoop Dogg, Doggystyle

Label: Death Row/Interscope
Release Date: 11/23/1993

If The Chronic had one flaw, it was that there wasn't enough Snoop on it (he's largely absent in the second half). Lucky for us, there's Doggystyle. Along with Nas' Illmatic and 50's Get Rich, it was one of the most anticipated debuts ever. It didn't surpass Dre's debut in terms of production-it essentially expanded on what Dre established-but it had the most hypnotic rappers ever dominating the microphone.

Snoop never sounded like was phased by anything no matter how violent, offensive, or outrageous, and the album is an unstoppable force because of that.
