Just over one week removed from the Busta Rhymes-assisted “Powder On My Clothes,” Snoop Dogg appears to be really returning to his concrete roots. Snoop appears several times on DJ Drama’s latest Beach City mixtape. Within, the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native-turned-Atlanta Georgia mainstay DJ aims to shine a light on the talent coming out of Long Beach, California.

Snoop has always been giving when it comes to helping his home city, from his close 213 bond with Warren G and Nate Dogg, to acts like Tray Deee, Lil 1/2 Dead, or Soopafly.

This time, Tha Doggfather sprinkles some game on Drama’s tape in the form of “Back Up.” The aqua-funk Scoop Deville-produced track finds Snoop speaking candidly to the lil’ homies with some rhythmic game. This sounds a lot like the MC’s early 2000s work. In the lyrics, he explains his name-change, while fighting the temptation to go back to his Polytechnic High ways, if pressed. So don’t press him.
