Throwback Thursday: Snoop Dogg

Throwback Thursday: Snoop Dogg

November 28, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

aturday November 23rd was a very special day in the music world, particularly for hip hop fans and Snoop Dogg himself, as the date marked the 20th anniversary of his debut top selling album Doggystyle.

The 1993 released project was the first for the Long Beach, California artist and with it being recorded not long after Dr Dre’s debut The Chronic, which saw him feature alongside Tha Dogg Pound, the Dre produced album certainly lived up to its high expectations.

Going on to sell thousands worldwide, Doggystyle remains Snoop Dogg’s highest selling album to date and with a career spanning from 1992 to the current day, he now has 12 studio albums under his belt and has credits as a rapper, songwriter, actor and even presenter, as he recently hosted the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards.

Selling over 30 million albums worldwide and now taking a different direction with his music genre from hip hop to reggae, this year Snoop has released his Reincarnation album, giving fans the chance to see his versatile side, both of which were seen by fans at this year’s UK Wireless Festival.

Whether a fan of the new Snoop or a die hard fan of his old skool releases, his following and achievements continue to grow, with a memorable debut putting him in the top 20 in America as well as Canada and Sweden.

With features including Nate Dogg, The Lady of Rage and Dr Dre, favourite releases and tracks included ‘Gin and Juice’, ‘What’s My Name?’, ‘Murder Was The Case’ and ‘Lodi Dodi’, but can you guess which track is your throwback for today?

Here’s ‘What’s My Name?’
