Snoop Dogg Presents Doggystyle Allstars – Welcome to the House Vol 1

Snoop Dogg Presents Doggystyle Allstars - Welcome to the House Vol 11. Intro – Snoop, Mac Minista – Production: Quaze 

Just an intro to the album to a basketball theme.

2. Dogghouse America – Snoop, Soopafly, E White, Mr, Kane, Latoiya – Production: Quaze

E White comes out spitting over a tight beat that is good to ride to, E shows his skill early. Soopafly lays down a tight verse second with a nice flow, Latoiya kicks in and shows her amazing voice and sets the tone to the album with it’s laid back funk feeling. Snoop delivers a nice but short verse and flow. Kokane gives a good hook and chorus. Overall a tight song that demonstrates the entire label’s skill. The drawback is the song may go on a little too long.

3. Not Like It Was – Snoop, Soopafly, E White, RBX – Production: EZ Elpee 

The first single from the album and possibly the best track on the album. It has a soulful beginning and the beat by Elpee kicks in and bounces nicely. Snoop delivers the first verse and doesn’t disappoint, he flows over the beat with classic Snoop skill. The chorus is something you can sing to. Soopafly drops the second verse and comes tight, then E White kicks in and once again shows why he may be the person to lead the next generation of the West. RBX’s gravely voice ends the song with a good appearance. Overall a great track.

4. Fallen Star – Latoiya Williams – Production: Michael Angelo

The album’s second single and it delivers everything. The production is off the hook. Latoiya sings with so much heart over the beat you can’t help but deny her talent. If she can deliver songs like this regularly she may live up to the hype of being the next Arethra Franklin. One of the best R&B songs I ever heard. Play this track for your girl and she’ll go crazy. Although a rap label, this may be Snoop’s diamond to bring the label to #1.

5. Doh Doh – Snoop, Soopafly, Mr. Kane, E White – Production: Hi Tek 

While it may be annoying the first listen, the chorus really grows on you. The production is good and hard on the speakers. It’s a slower song but Snoop gives a nice verse with a good flow over the beat. Soopafly also delievers, E White again surprises with his abilities. While it isn’t a party song it’s a good kick back track that you can. One problem with the track is that it runs on way too long.

6. Doin It Big – E White, RBX – Production: Hi Tek

A tight beat layed down by Hi Tek, RBX ad libs over the beat while E White rhymes tight with a good back and forth flow with RBX. A simple chorus but it’s catchy as hell. It’s slower but it’s what you would expect from the West Coast with beats and flows. Overall a very tight track.

7. Nite L.O.C.s – Mr. Kane, Snoop – Production: Meech Wells 

A faster beat that starts off with a Kokane giving his typical catchy hooks. It’s annoyingly gives a gangster flair to Corey Hart’s, yeah you read right, Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses At Night”. The track starts good and is good until that chorus. If you can ignore that, it’s a good cut.

8. Are You Ready!? – Soopafly – Production: Hi Tek 

A much slower track with a repetitive chorus that is a little annoying, but without the chorus, Soopafly rips it over the beat. His lyrics are nice and his flow is good. Production is pretty shitty, makes you wish Soopafly would have saved his vocals for a cut produced by himself.

9. Hey You – Soopafly, Snoop, E White – Production: The Alchemist 

Originally this was my favourite track on the album. The production is crazy, it’s slower but it suits the theme of the track. E White is mad tight over the beat and his lyrics are fire. The chorus is almost eerie feeling but it’s tight. Snoop and Soopafly drop verses that are off the chains. This track is straight fire.

10. Raised On The Side – Soopafly, Snoop, E White, Mr Kane, Daz – Production: Fredwreck

The production on this is tight but what else can you expect from Fredwreck? It’s has a catchy chorus laid down by Snoop, Kokane even comes tight on this but the best verse is surprisingly put down by Daz. One of the album’s best tracks.

11. Don’t Fight the Feelin – Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Camron, Lady May, Soopafly – Production: Meech Wells 

Production is nice on this track and it suits another classic hook put down by Nate Dogg. Besides Nate Dogg, none of the appearances are anything special and it becomes a filler track.

12. Unfucwitable – Lady of Rage – Production: DJ Premier 

Legendary producer DJ Premier lays down a pretty decent beat for Rage. Not his best work but it’s not bad. Rage shows she hasn’t lost a step since bouncing from Death Row and shows why she’s one of the best female rappers of all time. Good scratches in the beats. Not great but nothing to ***** about.

13. The Strong Will Eat the Weak – RBX, Mr. Kane, Snoop – Production: EP

A darker feeling to the track but it perfectly suits the voice and style of RBX. I love his verse on this, hard and dark. The chorus by Kokane is eerie in itself which goes perfectly with RBX, even Snoop lends to the style of the track. Very good track.

14. Just Get Carried Away – Reo Varnado, Snoop, Vinnie Bernard – Production: DJ Scratch 

Good production and the hook is tight to go along with the lyrics laid down by Snoop, good flow and style. A more soulful track to the album but it’s pretty damn good.

15. It Feelz Good – Latoiya Williams – Production: Soopafly

While hiphop heads won’t really be feeling this track, women love this song. It’s deep and souful. Latoiya shows her ability to be the next big star in the music world. Soopafly gives some good production to the track. A very good song, but not what Snoop fans want to hear.

16. Don’t Make A Wrong Move – Mr. Kane, Special Ed, Snoop, Prodigy – Production: Nottz

The production of this is a more bouncy feel to it. Prodigy gives a good appearance to the album but his lyrics are almost too hard for the feel of the track. Weak chorus. Possibly the worst track on the album.

17. *****’s Treat – Soopafly, Latoiya Williams – Production: Soopafly 

Soopafly gives some good production and flow to his shit on this. It’s a more sped up song but it’s pretty tight. Latoiya drops the chorus and doesn’t disappoint. Soopafly rips it pretty nice.

18. Trouble – Vinnie Bernard – Production: Vinnie Bernard 

Snoop must have given this spot to Vinnie as a favour because it’s shit. This R&B track just doesn’t fit the album at all, the production isn’t too great. He has a decent voice but leave it off the next album.

19. Squeeze Play – Too Cool, Young Buc, J Dog, Snoop, Leicy Loc – Production: DJ Slip 

Basically a preview of IV Life Records as most artists (minus Trey Deee, Crisstyle) are on this track. Production sounds like it should be on “The Wash” soundtrack, not that it’s bad. Everyone delivers some tight appearances and shows the potential IV Life Records has. The chorus is a little annoying but everyone’s verses make up for it. Includes one of the first Kurupt disses by a DPG artist.

20. Light That Shit Up – Snoop, RBX, Mr. Kane – Production: Hi Tek 

The production on this isn’t as great as the rest of the album and it takes a while to get the track going. Snoop tries to give a chorus but he should quit that. RBX has a tight appearance. Despite how long it takes to get going, it isn’t a horrible track.

This album shows what a westcoast album should be. It doesn’t sound like WC rappers trying to flow over East beats. When a song is tight, it’s off the *****ing chains (Not Like It Was, Fallen Star, Raised on the Side, Hey You) and when a song is bad it isn’t as though it completely sucks.

Latoiya Williams shows her ability to be a huge star in the music world, E White shows his potential to lead the west back, Snoop doesn’t disappoint, Soopafly is tight on every track he does. It’s a good album to show the skills of the label’s lineup. At times a track runs too long because it’s like they wanted to get everyone on it, but overall it’s a tight album.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
