Tha Blue Carpet Treatment
Superstar rapper and hip hop icon Snoop Dogg readies for his highly anticipated album "Tha Blue Carpet Treatment" releasing on November 21, 2006 through Doggystyle/Geffen.85% (7)
Early buzz from industry insiders promise a classic album complete with the reunion of Snoop and DR. DRE with three bangers from the dynamic duo. This classic pairing marks the duo's first collaborative effort in approximately five years and promises to make history once again.
"Tha Blue Carpet Treatment" is a return to the original sound that put the Long Beach rapper on the map with Snoop keeping it gangsta on each and every record. Following the street single, "Vato," produced by PHARRELL and featuring B-REAL, comes the highly anticipated second single, "That's That" produced by NOTTZ and featuring R&B crooner R. KELLY. This catchy and melodic song was most added at Urban and Rhythmic formats, proving it is shaping up to be another platinum hit for the West Coast "Boss." Snoop says, "'That's That' is theme music for a classy gangsta party - that's when you ladies pull out the high heels and the playas pull out the three-piece suits. You'll see in the video! Me and R. KELLY had a lot of fun shooting this one."
Throughout the album, Snoop takes it back to the hood showcasing the gritty realness that helped shape his status as a cultural icon. XXL writes, "Snoop's lyrical fire seems resurrected, as he delivers arguably his most consistently scorching work post-Doggystyle." Thirsty fans will be thrilled with the thought provoking song "Imagine," produced by and featuring DR. DRE, which reflects on what life would be like for the California natives without hip hop. The signature DR. DRE piano riff is complimented by the D'ANGELO sung chorus, marking the first time fans have heard D'ANGELO in six long years. Another album favorite is club banger "Psst," produced by JAMIE FOXX, N8 and BRAINZ and features JAMIE FOXX's signature falsetto on the hook. The album also features two collaborations with AKON, "Boss's Life" produced by DR. DRE and the current radio smash "I Wanna Love You," the latter also being on AKON's upcoming album. Of the album, Snoop says, "Tha Blue Carpet Treatment is my presentation to the world on what it means to be the King of the West Coast. I really worked extra hard on making this one perfect and got the best of the best among my homies in the music game- SKATEBOARD P, TIMBALAND, R. KELLY, D'ANGELO... and you know when me and DR. DRE get together - it's a monster."
As a gift to loyal fans, Snoop is treating 9 winners to "Tha Blue Carpet Treatment." Nine winning tickets will be placed inside random CDs of the album which reward the lucky recipient with a diamond Ice link watch. The grand prize winner will win a diamond Ice Link watch worth $100,000. Three winners will be prized with diamond Ice Link watches worth $10,000 and five winners will get diamond Ice Link watches worth $5,000.
As if Snoop were not busy enough, he also recently released his first book, "Love Don't Live Here No More," a story loosely based on his own life's trials and tribulations. The book, co-written by playwright David E. Talbert, is the first in a series of novels called Doggy Tales that takes readers from the unforgiving streets of Long Beach to the bright lights of show business.
Tha Blue Carpet Treatment finds Snoop employing his usual impressive lineup of collaborators and strutting his way through a by-now standard litany of libidinous, gang-bangin' boasts. But when your record is packed with this much veteran savvy and smooth flavor, the pride comes naturally. Snoop has been g-funky as hell for a long while, but "Crazy," with its hypnotic keyboard loop and silky flow, is impressive even for him. It's a trickle of light to counter the equally accomplished but darker "Vato," a fever-dream street duet with Cypress Hill's B Real. Traces of Doggystyle-era gangsta show up as well; the laconic flow of "Candy (Drippin' Like Water)" for instance, featuring E-40 and MC Eiht, is as instantly appealing as anything on that seminal debut. It must be said that whatever Snoop Dogg releases at this point in his career competes with his overwhelming celebrity and cartoonish, pimp-maestro image, and that makes it hard to take him seriously. But here, even a too-obvious, potentially disastrous song like "I Wanna F*** You" manages not to be ridiculous. If that's not the mark of a true star, I don't know what is. --Matthew Cooke
Rapero, productor y actor estadounidense. Es el "protegido" del productor Dr. Dre y esta considerado como uno de los MCs mas prominentes de la escena del rap de la Costa Oeste. Es muy popular su frase "Fo' shizzle, ma nizzle", que significa, "For sure, my nigga" ("Seguro, mi negro"). Nombre verdadero: Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. Lugar y Fecha de Nacimiento: Long Beach, California, el 20 de octubre de 1971. Otros sobrenombres: mas conocido como Snoop Dogg, ademas de Snoop Doggy Dogg, Tha Doggfather, The Bigg Boss Dogg, Bigg Snoop Dogg y The D-O Double G. Cuando era nino, su madre lo llamaba Snoopy ya que el joven veia los dibujos de Charlie Brown en los que aparecia dicho personaje, por lo que se hizo llamar Snoop Doggy Dogg como nombre artistico. Cambio su nombre a Snoop Dogg en 1996, tras dejar Death Row Records para firmar por No Limit Records. Muchos de sus primos, como RBX, Nate Dogg o Daz Dillinger, tambien son raperos y colaboran con Snoop en bastantes ocasiones. Ray-J y Brandy, cantantes de R&B, tambien lo son, y han colabordado juntos en un tema llamado "Smokin Trees" para el album Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, aunque finalmente no formo parte del mismo. Primeros anos Snoop acudio al instituto Long Beach Polytechnic, y su incursion inicial en la vida publica fue debido a su participacion en traficos de drogas, aunque a una escala relativamente pequena. Snoop fue miembro de una banda local de Crips en Long Beach, los Rollin' 20 Crips. En los tres anos posteriores a su graduacion en el instituto tuvo muchos problemas legales, llegando a estar en varias ocasiones en la carcel. Los miembros mas veteranos de Crips y los reclutas afiliados con la banda tenian la destreza durante muchos anos de reconocer el talento, tanto deportivo como musical, entre sus miembros, por lo que Snoop fue presionado para integrarse en el mundo de la musica y dejar a un lado las ventas de drogas en las calles. Posteriormente, Snoop grabo unas cintas caseras con su primo Nate Dogg y su mejor amigo Warren G (hermanastro de Dr. Dre de N.W.A.). En un principio, Lil' 1/2 Dead, primo de Nate, formaba tambien parte del grupo llamado 213, nombrado asi debido a que ese era el por entonces prefijo local de Long Beach. Esto era en parte en homenaje al grupo 413 de Richie Rich, conocido asi por el por entonces tambien prefijo local de Oakland, California. Exito con Death Row Records Dr. Dre comenzo a colaborar con el joven rapero, primero en el tema principal del largometraje Deep Cover, y despues en el album debut en solitario de Dr. Dre, The Chronic, junto con otros miembros de su antiguo grupo, Tha Dogg Pound. La contribucion de Snoop en The Chronic fue considerable; sus rimas fueron como un regalo para Dre. El enorme exito de Doggystyle, su album debut, fue en parte debido a su carta de presentacion en The Chronic. Ya ha anunciado la presentacion de un nuevo disco para 2008 llamado "ego trippin'". Tambien ha presentado su nuevo single: "sexual seduction".Snoop Dog and ICE CUBE of N.W.A.
Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. (born October 20, 1971, in Long Beach, California), better known by his stage name Snoop Dogg (or earlier in his career as Snoop Doggy Dogg), is an African American rapper, record producer (sometimes under the pseudonymn Niggaracci) and actor. Snoop is best known as an MC in the West Coast hip hop scene, and for being one of producer Dr. Dre's most notable proteges. His catch phrase is widely known as "fo' shizzle, ma nizzle," meaning, "for sure, my nigga," which basically means, "certainly, my African-American friend." That style of slang was invented by Frankie Smith and The Gap Band in the early eighties, and popularized in part by fellow rapper E-40, much of which is simply derived by adding an "izz" or "-izzle" sound to the word.
His mother nicknamed him "Snoopy" as a child because of how he would dress but also because of the Charlie Brown cartoons that he often watched; he took the stage name Snoop Doggy Dogg when he began recording. He changed his name to Snoop Dogg in 1996, when he left his original record label Death Row Records and signed with No Limit Records. Several of his cousins also became hip hop artists and Aftermath collaborators, including RBX, Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, and Joe Cool. R&B singers Ray J and Brandy are also his cousins and he recently released "Smokin trees" with Ray J and a duet with Brandy was pre-recorded for Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, but was not part of the album.
According to Soundscan he has sold over 18.5 million albums in the United States from the establishment of Soundscan (1991) to January 2007.
O'Shea Jackson (born June 15, 1969 in Los Angeles, California), is a rapper, actor and film director, who has legally adopted his stage name, Ice Cube. Regarded as one of the greatest hip hop artists, he began his career as a founding member of the famously controversial rap group N.W.A., and later launched a successful solo career in music and cinema. From the mid-90s onwards, Cube focused on acting, and his musical output has slowed down considerably. He remains one of the most visible West Coast rappers, having helped originate gangsta rap. He is particularly well-known for his incendiary raps on political and racial topics (such as the treatment of blacks in the United States). He is also one of the richest people in the hip hop industry with an estimated net worth of $145 million.
