The Story Of Success

Snoop Dogg became popular back in 1992 when he appeared on several tracks on Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic (including “Nuthin ‘But a” G “Thang”). It was on Dre‘s album that the genre G-Funk appeared, which is a mix of gangsta rap and P-Funk . Immediately after the release of The Chronic, recording of Doggystyle began.

The lyrics of the album tell about murders and showdowns, about parties and sex, about the life of a real Californian gangster . The whole album sounds like The Chronic. Rolling Stone magazine called this album a “replica” of The Chronic. The only difference between this album and The Chronic is that there is no mention of drugs on Doggystyle.

Most of the album was produced by Dr. Dre. However, some tracks were produced by Warren G, Daz Dilligner and DJ Pooh.

The album debuted at # 1 on the Billboard 200 , selling 803,000 copies in its first week. The album lasted three weeks at number one on this chart. In total, 6 million copies were sold in America and 14 million copies worldwide .

The legendary artist started greeting with caption to alum’s artwork: “Happy C day to my first solo record Doggystyle 27 years old” . It once more highlighted the importance and big value of Doggystyle for Snoop. The Doggfather also posted some colorful pictures on his Instagram, presenting exclusive limited edition of merch dedicated to his starry milestone. The merch set includes a bomber jacket, T-shirt and boxer briefs all with the Doggystyle cover artwork and branding logos.


The gifted MC continued the celebration with a bunch of posts associated with the recent viral video of a kid who danced and parodied Keak Da Sneak’s Bay Area song “Super Hyphie.” “Doggystyle C Day mood 27 years strong,” Snoop Dog wrote in the caption.

Then goes post, where Snoop with help of sport journalist and Instagram comic Kevin Cuenca freestyled to his classic high-ranked “Gin N Juice”, reminding its topicality in our days.

The rapper also saluted his colleague, important Doggystyle collaborator and West Coast MC Kurupt. Snoop sent a couple of videos to wish his fellow Crip a happy 48th birthday.
