Well look what onSMASH decided to drop for us…
While Dr. Dre’s The Chronic album has gotten infinite amount of play since it first dropped back in 1992, this album established the West Coast and more importantly.. Death Row Records. It also introduced us to a young Calvin Broadus who gave us Doggystyle on the solo tip and further extended the reign of the West in the 90’s. This track is a lost session from the Chronic album found on the new Re-Lit (and remastered) version available Sept. 1st. Even though Dr. Dre is nowhere to be found on the track lyrically, the production nostalgia from this is crazy. The album includes 7 bonus songs from the same era that were left off the album, including some lost gems from Kurupt, Daz, Jewell & CPO as well as more Snoop Doggy Dogg.
For those wondering how the old Snoop sound differs to what he’s putting out now, this is what we meant. You can’t argue this old stuff is better than the new. The lyrics from this were also used in Snoop Dogg’s unreleased Midnight Love. Props to unkut for the find.
