Snoop's latest is billed as his first album to reach out to blacks and Latinos, Crips and Bloods, to fans of streetwise hip-hop and of commercial bilge. Joined by producers known (Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Timbaland) and unknown (1500, Nottz, Niggaracci), Calvin Broadus succeeds in creating a broadly diverse album that will please hard-core aficionados as well as those who wouldn't know PE from public education. Like most major hip-hop records these days, Snoop drags in friends to cover every angle, including Stevie Wonder (for a wretched retake of 'Have a Talk With Godâ?�), The Game, B-Real and Nate Dogg, among others. Snoop goes practically hyphy on 'Intrology,â?� complains about rappers 'using my flowâ?� on 'Think About It,â?� sings 'wipe the boogers out of my eyeâ?� on 'Candyâ?� and goes thug-crazy on 'Gangbangn 101.â?� Like the Donald Trump of hip-hop, Snoop Dogg is a one-man show.
