From Gangsta music to Gospel
In the beginning, there was Snoop D O Double G. A young 19 years old teenager, introduced to the business by Dr. Dre in the 90’s. Suddenly he became a rapper. At the time he speaks, in his songs, about gangsta things: Drugs, sex…
Then we have the apparition of Snoop Lion. Snoop Dogg is a cool laid back artist doing reggae music.
Now He is surprising us with some Holy Spirit vibes and he is doing generously with 32 tracks. It feels like is music reflects the state of mind that he is in. He doesn’t do music only for money but also to share how he feels.
Snoop Doggy Dog has been in the rap business for 26 years now. He has explored several genres, work with many people. And has even done TV shows. So now what we should be asking him is what is coming next?
