In my junior year of high school there were two rap albums that probably accounted for about half the music I listen to at the time. The first was The Chronic by Dr. Dre. It featured a young protege of Dre’s who went by the name Snoop Doggy Dogg. Shortly after the release of The Chronic Snoop debuted his own album (produced by Dre) called Doggystyle; the first single entitled “What’s My Name.”
Having just watched this video (which got regular airplay on MTV) for the first time in probably 15 years, one though jumps into my head: It’s pretty amazing Snoop was able to put together a clean version of the song that still sounded good.
