This week’s playlist is an ode to some of the G-Funk greats of the 90s. Some will be expected–Dre, Snoop, DJ Quik, Ice Cube–but there may be a couple of surprises that make your head nod a little harder.

I was catching up on some reading today and finally read the Wiz Khalifa article in the October 2010 issue of XXL magazine (the whole issue was incredible).  There was a line in the Wiz article that struck me.  It was something to the effect of Wiz having moved from... Read more

You heard the “G-Mix” for Wiz Khalifa’s Black & Yellow ft Snoop Dogg and T-Pain. Now here’s the video.

This is probably the first of many collabos between Snoop and Wiz. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWAGLkyxQG0&feature=player_embedded.... Read more

Some may say Jay-Z but my money is on Snoop Dogg to be the first rapper to have a hit after turning 50. Check out his new video for Wet.

This one could be called Sexual Eruption--The Sequel. As with most sequels, it's not nearly as good as the original, but the video is too hot for TV. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Fj33r2qdc&feature=player_embedded.... Read more

Yeah. Uh Huh. You know what it is…the second collabo from Big Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa. It’s That Good.

We've already said these 2 were like brothers from another mother (and in a different generation)...Snoop calls them the new Cheech & Chong. However you slice it (lick it and roll it) they are a winning combo. Click here to download..... Read more

Wiz Khalifa is like the 2010 version of Snoop Dogg. Check out the side by side comparison on Black & Yellow (the G-Mix) ft Snoop Dogg, Juicy J and T-Pain

So what are the similarities?  Both have silky smooth, sing-song flows (say that 5 times fast), are tall and lanky, are super laid-back, are eminently likeable and each have a well-documented love for the medicinal herb.  If that's not enough, a picture is worth a thousand words: Click here to...

Here's some new music from Uncle Snoop Dogg ft Hustle Boys, who sound like the 2010 version of Tha Dogg Pound. The video is called For the Good Times. [fbshare]

This one looks like it was funded by Landy cognac but the music is cool, so it's all good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dAfOTb-Abg&feature=player_embedded Check the comparison to Tha Dogg Pound: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pvR48FvXy4 The West Side is making a long-awaited comeback.....

The good Dr. Dre dropped Kush after an 11-year absence and it was like he was never gone (in the best possible way). Now here's the video.

Snoop also hasn't sounded this dope in years.  What is it about Dre beats that brings out the best in him? .... Read more

Everyday I'm (digital) hustlin'. Check out Forbes Magazine's breakdown of the most tech-savvy hip-hop artists.

Uncle Snoop Dogg could be clocking more than $5,000 per Tweet from Toyota. "They used to think I was a nerd," says hip hop artist Chamillionaire, "when we used to do live shows on my website, back in the day." The time Chamillionaire, aka Hakeem Seriki, refers to is around... Read more

Could Detox really be about to drop? The good Dr. Dre just dropped his first new single in 11 years. Check out Kush ft Snoop Dogg and Akon

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_lsRc-XyY4&feature=fvst Click here to download.  If Detox drops in 2010, I challenge ANYONE to name a better year in hip-hop.  This year has brought dope albums from Drake, Jeezy, The Roots, Bun B, Rick Ross, Big Boi, B.o.B., Kanye (coming soon), Nicki (coming soon), Black Milk, Nottz, Lil Wayne...oh...and EMINEM. ...
