Snoop Dogg – Neva Left Review

This project is way back classic Snoop. Everything about this is West Coast magic that shows that the title is totally correct and that Snoop is still a force to be reckoned with.

The production is great with plenty of scope for the content. Each beat is individual but with plenty of West Coast flavour to take it back to those old days. With the goal in mind to show that Snoop never left his roots, there are no issues with this release.

The lyricism is even more classic Snoop with his legendary flow lifting this to new heights. His rhymes might not be the most complex, but they have passion and a unique delivery to help increase the entertainment value. There are no issues with the performance from Snoop on this.

The features are amazing and help keep the West Coast flavour alive. Each puts in a good effort and shows their own skills, while having great chemistry with the main artist. The selection make the perfect atmosphere and could not be improved in any major fashion.

Overall, this is an enjoyable and entertaining mix of currant talent and old school feels that makes a great album. Snoop Dogg should be happy and proud of what he has put out here.

Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD – Sour Soul Review

This is a great project that combines Ghostface’s signiture style with the haunting production he does so very well with. If the chemistry on this project is anything to go by, we can expect great things from this pairing in the future.

The production is full of beats that sound like they use the same idea behind Wu-Tang Clan’s original album. If you modernised the backings on those tracks, you get an idea of what to expect on this album. With that sort of stand out beat to work with, The duo do a great job making a great project.

The lyricism is classic Ghostface and does not disappoint. He does a great job keeping the tracks at a pure Hip Hop level at its most entertaining. The lyricism may not be the most complex out there, but it is vivid imagery that is painted and makes a good listen.

The features are also good and help bring a level of diversity to the project. Each is different from Ghostface and shows that he works well with a range of other rappers. The kind of chemistry shown on this project is fantastic and should be an example to others in the rap game.

Overall, this is a good project and an enjoyable listen through. If you are a fan of Ghostface already, you will love this album. If you aren’t, then this should make you one.
