Snoop Dogg Says He's Never Listened To "Doggystyle" In Its Entirety

Snoop Dogg reflects on his classic debut.

Saturday (November 23) marked the 20-year anniversary of Snoop Dogg's heralded debut album, Doggystyle.

In an interview with MTV News, Snoop reflected on what the project meant to him. "Back then it meant a lot because it was being able to stand on my own two feet and put out a project for the first time and to actually be heard and seen for who I am individually," said Snoop. "Now what it means, it's an accomplishment. Looking back at it, it was very well put together, it was standards, it showed me the way to do it, the only way to do it, even though I haven't always stuck to that high standard."

Snoop admitted that he has never giving the record a proper listen."I don't believe I've ever listened to the whole album and I'm being honest with you," he said. "I ain't never listen to Doggystyle top to bottom. I may have listened to songs, but I never listen to any of my projects to to bottom."

Snoop discussed his favorite songs from the project. "On that record, my favorite song was probably either 'Murder Was The Case' or 'Gz and Hustlas.' 'Gz and Hustlas' was easy; it was supposed to be a mic check. I was supposed to go in there, and when I mic checked, I freestyled, and whatever came out is the record that you hear."

"'Murder Was the Case,' that was kinda hard because I started writing on another beat and I was writing a different kinda story," said Snoop. "And then once Dre gave me that beat the story came to life and it was like I'm writing a story about me making a deal with the Devil, me going to jail,"
