Today, Snoop Dogg turns the big 4-0 (that's almost 6 in Dogg years). It's been a long road for Big Snoop, from Crippin' in the LBC to reppin' as a pop-culture superstar. With nearly two decades in the game, he's been making hits for the better part of a college kid's entire lifetime.

As great as his catalog is—from "Deep Cover" to "Drop It Like It's Hot"—scattered throughout that massive discography are more than a few mangy missteps. From terrible television jingles to shockingly bad single choices, and even a losing collaboration with your boy Charlie Sheen, these songs are so awful that they're kinda awesome.

Like we always do at this time, Complex put together a list of The 10 Worst Snoop Dogg Songs. Take a look inside for all the joints that should have been dumped in the ashtray. Happy Birthday Big Homie!

Complex says: At first glance, the title of the song sounds like something Too $hort would’ve put out about smasshing a girl on her period. But this one is actually for the kids. Dedicated to the youth football league that Snoop coaches, the five words repeated throughout the chorus gets more and more annoying as the song goes on.

Even for a rapper who loves flipping nursery rhymes, these verses sound way too much like actual nursery rhymes. And although it’s a nice song with a positive message, it had no business landing on a Snoop album that was supposed to be about some gangsta shit.

8. Snoop Dogg “Wet” (2010)

Producer: Snoop Dogg, Jamel Debbouze

Best Youtube Comment: “Snoop ain’t been shit since The Last Meal” - Namkooc

Complex says: This sorry excuse for a song mixes a West Coast beat from the '90s with a Bollywood-inspired movie from God knows where. The result, as you can probably guess, is a big pot of “WTF?”

Featured on the track is Jamel Debbouze, who sounds like he has no idea why he's there or what he’s rapping about. We’re not clear what Snoop was thinking when he put his name on this masterpiece, but one thing’s for certain: Snoop Dogg, Bollywood, and a Prince of Egypt theme are about as wise a combination as Apu's patented chutney squishee.

6. Snoop Dogg “Oh Sookie” (2010)

5. Snoop Dogg f/ Jon B. “D.O.G.’s Get Lonely 2” (1998)

Producer: Meech Wells, Snoop Dogg

Album: Da Game Is To Be Sold Not Told

Label: No Limit/Priority

Best Youtube Comment: “LOL..... :P” - Pzykotikal

Complex says: Late in his career, Snoop made the laid-back ladies-man approach work for him. But not this time. This song may be the first time he tried his hand at the rough-around-the-edges-but-still-a-ladies-man style. What he ended up with was a misguided, awkward faux-love song.

The track is a remake of Jon B.’s whiteboy soul classic “They Don’t Know,” but it lacks the taste and especially the smoothness of the original. Snoop raps as if he’s slightly uncomfortable, leading us to believe that his so-called vulnerable side is really just a case of rapper's remorse. It sounds like he had a moment of clarity in the vocal booth, thinking to himself "Dear Lord I wonder can you save me?" Apparently not.

4. Snoop Dogg f/ Charlie Sheen “Winning” (2011)

Best Youtube Comment: “‘Anyone who can get through the first 30 seconds of this....god bless you.” - Annonymouspecification

Complex says: When we look back on 2011, we’ll remember it as the year Charlie Sheen proved to the world that one celebrity’s crack bender was not only worthy of national headlines (and a classic Complex soundboard) but also a really bad rap song. When you combine Snoop’s knack for out-the-box collaborations and his notoriously horrible endorsement logic, this was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.

We’re still looking forward to forgetting that this ever happened. When Charlie Sheen was saying awesomely insane things on TV, he was winning. But when started repeating the phrase incessantly over an inane beat, he was just failing miserably. Gotta give Snoop credit for sorta trying to make the song interesting, but he should've known better.

3. Snoop Dogg "Freestyle Conversation" (1996)

Producer: Soopafly

Album: Tha Doggfather

Label: Death Row/Interscope

Best Youtube Comment: “the part i don't understand is how a multi-million dollar rapper will knowingly put a 'crappy' beat on his album.... to prove a point? the point he proved is that the fast forward button still works on my remote cause that beat was made in 2 minutes and is awful to hear” - tremorchristo

Complex says: After releasing his classic debut Doggystyle, Snoop was a certified superstar, but that's when things took a turn. His friend Tupac was killed and Dr. Dre escaped from Death Row leaving Snoop to fend for himself on his sophomore LP, Tha Doggfather. He tried to prove he could win without Dre's sonic blueprint, but ended up proving how Much he needed the good doc. 

"I don't give a fuck about no beat," declared Snoop on the song. That may be true, but unfortunately for him, everyone else did. If this intentionally sub-par production was a conceptual statement, it went over everybody's head. (Puff puff, pass.) No wonder Tha Doggfather ranks as one of the 10 Worst Rap Album Fails
