Just Blaze Drops A Beat For Snoop Dogg (Audio)
Just Blaze is traditionally recognized for his production work for East Coast Hip-Hop stalwarts such as Jay Z, Cam’ron, Freeway, and Fabolous. However, the New Jersey native has been a great musical confidant for West Coast star MCs such as The Game, Kendrick Lamar, and Kxng Crooked (care of Slaughterhouse).
After doing some sporadic work with Snoop Dogg over the last 15 years, Just laces a heat work for July 1’s Coolaid. The 14th album by the Long Beach, California superstar turns back into some of the themes that have permeated Snoop’s lyrics over the last two and a half decades. “Super Crip” is a straightforward return to Gangsta Rap that has Calvin Broadus talkin’ slick in sync with the beat. To make the moment large, Just freaks a synth arrangement that builds in the craziest way. After a minute of music, Blaze uses those dirty drum sounds that bring Tha Doggfather back to his early ’90s Rap explosion.
This was “hand-delivered” to Dr. Dre’s The Pharmacy radio show on Beats1.
