Snoop Dogg "Freestyle Conversation" (1996)
Album: Tha Doggfather
Label: Death Row/Interscope
"I don't give a fuck about no beat," Snoop declares at the opening of this track from Tha Doggfather, apparently taking umbrage at the idea that his success was derived from how well his flow locked into Dr. Dre's drums. Instead of proving the haters wrong, though, he just confirmed their suspicions with this wack experiment in loosely talking over a half-assed G-funk track produced by Soopafly. Snoop's busy, arrhythmic delivery here almost seems to predict the flow of his future No Limit labelmate Silkk The Shocker.
