‘Deep Cover’

‘Deep Cover’ (Soundtrack)
Snoop Dogg made his first appearance on record with the 1992 classic song ‘Deep Cover,’ which was produced by Dr. Dre. The haunting street banger launched Snoop’s career and turned him into one of the most interesting rap characters from California. “Creep with me, as I crawl through the hood / Maniac, lunatic, call me Snoop Eastwood / Kicking dust as I bust police / And, you will never hear me hollerin’ about peace,” raps Snoop. Call the police, because this is a murder rap.

‘Who Am I? (What’s My Name?)’

‘Doggystyle’
After his collaborative performance on Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ album, it was time for Snoop to shine on the solo tip. His 1993 debut LP, ‘Doggystyle,’ was a landmark effort putting the West Coast on the hip-hop map. On ‘What’s My Name,’ a young Calvin Broadus introduces himself to his fans and gives warning shots to those who want to test him. Bow-wow-wow-yippee-yo-yippee-yay! Bonus Fact: The ‘What’s My Name’ video was directed by hip-hop’s renaissance man Fab Five Freddy.

‘Vapors’

‘The Doggfather’
There are a lot great songs on Snoop Dogg’s second album ‘The Doggfather,’ but we picked ‘Vapors’ because of his unique flip of Biz Markie’s classic jam of the same name. Swapping out names to feature his DPG homies (Daz and Kurupt) as well as producer Warren G, this is a great example of Snoop’s knack for great storytelling over a slow-grooving beat. Snoop even gives a hat-tip to Markie, who makes a cameo appearance in the video.

‘Lay Low’

‘The Last Meal’
At No. 7 is the low-rider track ‘Lay Low.’ On the Dr. Dre-produced song, Snoop Dogg barks gritty rhymes to the haters who want to thwart his mackish ways. “I don’t go to clubs, I never chase a bitch / I’m here to bang that gangsta s— until the apocalypse,” he raps. The late hook king Nate Dogg (R.I.P.) and Master P also appear on the song.

‘Sensual Seduction’

‘Ego Trippin’
Snoop Dogg flipped the script and tried his hand at singing through a vocoder (not Auto-Tune) on the soulful and funky ‘Sensual Seduction.’ The song helped Snoop garner his first No. 1 single on the dance chart. While crooning his way through the hit it also demonstrated Snoop’s versatility and showed that he can crossover into different genres and still make sure-fire records.

‘Murder Was the Case’

‘Murder Was the Case’ (Soundtrack)
Snoop Dogg tells a fictional tale of murder, death and resurrection on this ominous track, which was produced by Dr. Dre. Snoop’s lyrics are chilling as he recounts how he came back to life on the operating table after being shot in a drive-by shooting. “I’m shaking and they breaking trying to save the Dogg / Pumping on my chest and I’m screamin’ / I stop breathin’, damn I see demons / Dear God, I wonder can you save me / I can’t die my boo boo’s about to have my baby,” he raps.

‘Neva Have 2 Worry’

‘Ego Trippin’
The Doggfather’s rise to rap stardom wasn’t an easy one. On ‘Neva Have 2 Worry,’ Snoop chronicles the trials and tribulations he endured while trying to stay relevant in the rap game for 20 years. “Boss of the city / Boss of the coast / Some other n—-s tried, but none of ‘em come close / They stuck lookin’ silly, but nothin’ like a loc / The big Bow Wow, I kill it with one stroke,” he boasts.

‘Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang’

‘The Chronic’
Coming in at No. 3 on our list is this classic G-funk ode ‘Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang,’ featuring a stellar rap performance from the Dogg himself. The rapper earned his first No. 1 hit with this landmark song and elevated him to be the flagship artist on Dr. Dre’s newly-formed label Death Row Records.

‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’

‘R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece’
Next to ‘Gin & Juice,’ this is probably Snoop’s most beloved party jam. He recently adapted the song into a viral video for Hot Pockets, which nabbed over 6 million views on YouTube. The Neptunes-produced banger was No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for three weeks in 2004, and garnered Snoop two Grammy nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance by a duo or Group in 2005.

‘Gin & Juice’

‘Doggystyle’
Finally, at No. 1 on our list is a no-brainer — it’s ‘Gin & Juice.’ Undoubtedly, this is Snoop Dogg’s most recognized tune out of his entire discography. It’s a classic song that will get any party crunk without hesitation. The infectious chorus has to be one of most quotable lines in hip-hop. “Rollin’ down the street, smokin’ indo, sippin’ on gin and juice / Laid back / With my mind on my money and my money on my mind.” Bonus Fact: A six-year-old rap youngin named Lil Bow Wow made a cameo appearance in the ‘Gin & Juice’ video playing Snoop’s little brother.
