It aint no fun if the homies cant have none

Am I the only one who wonders why Snoop Dogg has sucked since his debut Doggy Style album in 1993? The Doggy Style album was unbelievable,a standard setting hip hop album. The rhymes, the beats and even the guest appearances on Doggy Style were awesome.

Then...Snoop made nearly two decades of SHIT music. Snoop became a caricature of himself, holding the pimp cup (snoop a pimp???? get fn serious!), and became someone who cant even be taken seriously anymore. Yes, he had the occasional commercial hit (like Beautiful with Pharrell) but he basically churned out nearly two decades of garbage (who even buys his shit?).

Which begs the question, what the fuck happened??? The only way I can explain it is Dr Dre because the one key change since Doggy Style has been that Snoop was no longer with Dre. Which begs the question - would Deep Cover (187 on an undercover cop!) or Doggy Style have been the same without Dre? Is the success of that song and album actually more attributable to Dre than Snoop?

PS - When is Dr Dre going to release the long long long awaited DETOX album so people might fall in love with hip hop all over again?
