Buddy’s “Crime of the Century” sounds like a West Coast version of Jay Z and Memphis Bleek’s “Coming of Age” from Jay’s Reasonable Doubt album, mixed with a dash of “Deep Cover.” Similarly to how Jay and Bleek did on “Coming of Age,” Buddy and Snoop go back and forth, line for line with Buddy trying to be on the come up and Snoop teaching the impatient youngster the game. The parallels continue as the menacing and sparse track produced by Christian Rich is also reminiscent of the Dre and Snoop collabo that launched Snoop’s career. Check it out.
