Snoop Dogg vs Dr. Dre
The procedure: Father Guido Sarducci IV will snatch the first crisp, clean & new mp3 he stumbles upon, listen to it at least once, and then find an old song (ten years or more) for some good old-fashioned compare and contrast. The purpose: To draw a line between the modern and the out-of-date. The premise: To expose the kids to their past while also exposing the past to it’s offspring. Thus, if you like This than you might like That.

It’s all about Wiz these days. Here, Mr. EZWider jumps on a track off Snoop’s new album, Doggumentary, which just so happens to drop on the same day as Wiz’s Rolling Papers, March 29th. So, which album are you most likely to download? Let me make an educated guess here and go with Rolling Papers. Besides the fact that “Black & Yellow” is the best pop song of this young decade, so far, judging by songs like todays featured track, Doggumentary doesn’t have half a leg to stand on. However, Wiz is the new king of weed-rap and if this was just his track, then I would probably be using a Snoop Doggy Dogg track as the “back-in-the-day” comparison. Instead, we’ll compare it to…
Yup, Snoop’s old mentor. Sure, this is an easy one, but what’s more interesting is that this track can fall into the “old” category. I mean, c’mon Dre. At this point, I just want Detox to drop so I can sleep already. I don’t even care to hear it. Naw, it’ll be dope. Dope! Yup, that’s what we’re talking about here. The one time anti-dope advocate, the Dr. has made quite a living on one concept, influencing everyone from Snoop, Warren G and, yes, even Ice Cube, to Eminem, The Game and, yes, even our boy Wiz Khalifa. However, for his sake, and the sake of the rap world in general, I really hope Detox doesn’t suck, because that would ruin Dre’s legacy worse than what Charlie Sheen is doing to the Platoon legacy.
