Snoop done gone and made some changes for the better. He sings an entire track, and proves he actually can do his R&B thing.
Hmm, who that n---- that brought you that gangsta s---/ before you motherf------ was even ready for it?/ Showed you how to tie a flag on your head/ and represent your motherf-----' set 'til you're dead? I think we all know the answer to that, Snoop D-O-double-G, the pimp that rhymes "b----" with "switch" and "doe" with "hoe" repeatedly and still makes it sound tight.
Snoop done gone and made some changes for the better, no more No Limit sound (besides the sleeper Back Up Off Me), and he's gone back to his LBC/DPG roots. Snoop even takes it far enough to sing an entire track. Leave Me Alone proves that Snoop actually can do his R&B thing. The one thing that kind of drags down the music value of this CD is too many guest appearances, including Kokane (who appears on 8 tracks), Ice Cube, M.C. Ren, Master P, Butch Cassidy, Eve and countless others. But through all that he proves that he can still lay the pimp game down on tracks like the absolute masterpiece, Stacey Adams, True Lies and Brake Fluid.
The lyrical power of Snoop and the total LBC sound that Scott Storch provides on the last track, Y'all Gone Miss Me, leaves you knowing that Snoop's gonna be all right. With another great release under his belt and now moving to his own record company, Doggystyle Records, there's no limit to what Snoop can do in the future.
