Just as Ice Cube promised, he, MC Ren, and DJ Yella performed together as N.W.A. for the first time since 1989 at last night’s BET Experience event in L.A. Although Dr. Dre wasn’t there, unfortunately, the three MCs performed N.W.A. tracks “Fuck Tha Police” and “Chin Check” (with some help from Snoop Dogg) and gave… More »

Dâm-Funk – “We Continue”

LA-based funk sovereign Damon Riddick (bka Dâm-Funk) hasn’t dropped a bona fide full-length solo release since 2009’s Toeachizown, so today’s announcement that he will drop the 20-track deep Invite The Light in September is welcome news. According to a press release, Invite The Light is a “concise, beginning-to-end vision” that focuses on Riddick’s progression a… More »

The 5 Best Moments Of Firefly 2015 Sunday

After three days of cloud cover, Firefly’s final outing unfolded entirely in the hot, hot sun. The crowds thickened up, too, which made maneuvering around the muddy paths a bit of a challenge. But if you’re excited about a particular set, you’ll hoof through anything — mud, rain, spilled liquids of questionable origin — to… More »

Snoop Dogg Sues Pabst For 10% Of Colt 45

Above, you can see Snoop Dogg celebrating his 40th birthday with a Colt 45 cake. Sadly, that was four years ago, and today, his relationship with the Pabst-owned brand is in a much more precarious position. Bloomberg reports that Snoop filed a suit in Los Angeles state court on Monday, June 8, against the recently… More »

Snoop Dogg – “California Roll” (Feat. Stevie Wonder & Pharrell) Video

Stevie Wonder has been recording a lot of collaborations lately, and it’s gotten to the point where (not joking here) Jason Derulo just put him on a song with Keith Urban. But if anyone can recognize the honor and power of a Stevie Wonder guest appearance, it’s the old soul-head duo of Snoop Dogg and… More »

Watch Killer Mike On Snoop Dogg’s GGN Program

Did you know Snoop Dogg has his own online weekly talk show? I didn’t! But he does — it’s called GGN (Double G News), and he just brought Killer Mike on the show to smoke some weed and chat. They run through a bunch of topics together: how Killer Mike got started, the formation of… More »

Raekwon – “1,2 1,2″ (Feat. Snoop Dogg) Video

Raekwon’s new album Fly International Luxurious Art came and went without a whole lot of notice last month. But that album had some joints on it, and one of those joints was “1,2 1,2,” on which Rae and Snoop Dogg teamed up for bring a surprising level of old-rap-dude energy. Those two have styles that… More »

The Week In Pop: Zac Brown Band Branches Out In The Blandest Way Possible

In this era of ever-diminishing music sales, there are weeks when an album squeaks into the #1 spot because there’s no legitimate competition. This was not one of those weeks. Zac Brown Band’s Jekyll + Hyde forcefully seized the top spot, racking up 228,000 equivalent units — one of the best sales frames of the… More »

Spotify Has Compiled The Ultimate 4/20 Playlist

In honor of today’s… err… holiday, Spotify has compiled a list of all of the songs most frequently included on 4/20-themed playlists, along with a few other fun facts. According to Spotify, 75 percent of the 40,000+ 4/20 playlists on the site were created by men, and unsurprisingly, the most-streamed 4/20 track is Cypress Hill’… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

If you were some kind of underground artist making a video this week, it was hard to compete. A few big stars on big labels (or with big cable networks backing them) made videos so goofy and fun and entertaining that no indie type could afford to compete. And yet this week’s best video still… More »

The Week In Pop: Walk The Moon Are Our Latest Proof That The ’80s Will Never Die

How many times can the ’80s “come back” before we just admit they’re here to stay? In 2010, Simon Reynolds wrote in The Guardian that the ’80s revival had lasted an entire decade and indicated that it was time time to move on to the ’90s. And although the ensuing five years have given rise… More »

Raekwon – “1,2 1,2″ (Feat. Snoop Dogg)

A Raekwon/Snoop Dogg collab is the sort of thing that would’ve set the world on fire in 1995, and as it turns out, it still sounds pretty goddam good today. Rae’s long-in-the-works new album Fly International Luxurious Art is finally set to come out later this month, and we’ve already heard him team up with… More »

Snoop Dogg’s Instagram Causes Yet Another Controversy

Snoop Dogg’s pretty bad at Instagram. I’d consider Instagram the least likely social network to cause any trouble — there’s no potential for misguided tweets, no opportunity to write long Facebook rants. How can you really go wrong posting a filtered picture that (sometimes) has a caption attached? Well, Snoop knows how. First, he came… More »

Who’s Who On Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly

Even after less than a week’s worth of impressions, To Pimp A Butterfly leaves a distinct impression: Kendrick Lamar needs a lot of collaborators to help him figure out who has his back. Kendrick’s focus on working his post-fame nerves from every angle — self-awareness, self-doubt, self-centeredness, self-love — pushes back against the ego-trip narrative… More »

The tracklist for Kendrick Lamar’s new album To Pimp A Butterfly surfaced last week, but didn’t have any features attached. Now, iTunes has the official tracklist up and, along with that, the confirmed features for each of the songs.

Snoop Dogg Is The SXSW Music 2015 Keynote Speaker

Over the weekend, I saw the comedian Shakir Standley perform standup, and among his best and most cringe-worthy jokes was one about Snoop Dogg (aka Snoopadelic, Snoop Lion, Snoopzilla), specifically about Snoop taking himself too seriously. Standley focuses on Snoop’s introductory call-to-action in the song “Pronto,” on which he collaborated with Soulja Boy, “Coming at… More »

Snoop Dogg and Aloe Blacc both appear in an advertisement for a new campaign called #ImUnloading, which urges people to divest their 401K from unknowingly investing money into the gun industry. The campaign is a partnership between Unload Your 401K and No Guns Allowed, an organization that gets its title from the Snoop song of… More »

Snoop Dogg’s Pharrell-Produced LP Bush Out In March

Snoop Dogg once extended his career a few years by making a pair of enormous hits, “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and “Beautiful,” with Pharrell. But those songs both came out more than a decade ago, and it’s been a while since Snoop has had a hit, or even made anything especially listenable. That could… More »

Iggy Azalea Was Brittany From White Chicks For Halloween

There’s been a lot said about Iggy Azalea’s cultural appropriation, from sources reputable (NPR, Salon) and less so (see Snoop Dogg’s Instagram post from last month). During the back-and-forth between Azalea and Snoop following his Instagram, he compared her to Marlon Wayans’ character in White Chicks. And so for Halloween, she dressed up as hi… More »
