20 Good Rap Songs Ruined by Bad Hooks

Snoop Doggy Dogg "Snoop's Upside Ya Head" (1996)


"Snoop's Upside Ya Head" was the lead single off Snoop Dogg's misguided sophomore album Tha Doggfather. The song had the dubious distinction of dropping the day after Snoop's Death Row Records labelmate 2Pac died, and it doesn't rise to the occasion. "Snoop's Upside Ya Head" lifts its sample and chorus off the Gap Band's "Oops Upside Ya Head," but great funk doesn't always make great gangsta rap. Like most of Snoop's sophomore set, which sorely lacked the guidance of Dr. Dre, this one misses the mark. Also, "Snoop's upside ya head" is just an awful line.
