[Trap] Dr. Dre Ft. Snoop Dogg – The Next Episode (Dani Deahl x Jason Edward Remix)

Dr. Dre Ft. Snoop Dogg
The Next Episode (Dani Deahl x Jason Edward Remix)

Happy 420 to all the partakers out there! For you, we have something special from Dani Deahl and Jason Edward. An homage to two of music’s most well known tokers, the two producer’s tweaked Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “The Next Episode” into a tasty twerk treat. Get down and boogie your bottom, or kick back and chill (and smoke), the choice is yours. The introduction uses the iconic original beat, but then builds into the drop where fat horns matched with ripe vocal chops fire into the mix. As heard in previous Dani Deahl works, there’s a little moombah phrase that creeps in the song too. Dani Deahl and Jason Edward dished this out as a 420 present, so you can download the track for free. Enjoy the holiday!

[Trap] Prince Royce Feat. Snoop Dogg – Stuck On A Feeling (Mack & Jet Set Vega Remix)

Prince Royce
"Stuck On A Feeling" Featuring Snoop Dogg (Mack & Jet Set Vega Remix)

Mack & Jet Set Vega form quite the pair. They’ve come together numerous times in the past for official remixes and they’re back with a flip of “Stuck On A Feeling,” originally by Prince Royce and Snoop Dogg. They’ve dished out some quality house records, including a personal favorite of mine, so we were surprised to hear them branch out into the more twerk/trap area for this remix. However, we’re not mad at all. These two know how to get people dancing, whether it’s when they DJ or produce, which is why this jam turned out as bouncy as it did. Shake your rump, gig with your trap arms, but most importantly, whatever you do, enjoy it. Mack & Jet Set Vega records don’t come flying out of the studio onto the digital shelves, so savor this one. I’m sure when Spring hits they’ll have another big one for us to lend out ears and bodies to.

[NEW] Snoop Lion – No Guns Allowed (Feat. Drake & Cori B) (Prod. Major Lazer, Ariel Rechtshaid & Dre Skull)

Snoop Lion
No Guns Allowed (feat. Drake & Cori B.)

After Snoop Lion premiered his brand new single live on Conan last week, fans have been hotly anticipating the song’s official release. The final version, which Snoop uploaded to SoundCloud today, features a brand new verse from Drake, as well as vocals from his own daughter, Cori B. As a major player in the West Coast-East Coast rivalry of the early-90’s, it’s great to now see Snoop reversing his stance on gun violence and standing up against it. The song also features a side of Drake we really haven’t seen before, as he reflects on the tragic loss of some friends due to shootings last summer in Toronto. Although there is no download link yet, those interested in this song will be able to find it on Snoop Lion’s upcoming album, Reincarnated, dropping April 23.

[Reggae/Dub] Snoop Lion – Here Comes the King feat. Angela Hunte (Prod. by Major Lazer)

If anyone doubts that Snoop Lion has what it takes anymore to make an impact in music anymore or that his name change is just a gimmick, this song is proof that the switch was his best career move in years. The Major Lazer produced beat brings it back to the origins of the modern wave of bass music, Dub Reggae, the original style of heavy bass experimentation. In his “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit this week, Snoop revealed that he smokes 80 blunts a day, every day, which certainly keeps up with Bob Marley‘s pound a week. The wonderful chorus by Angela Hunte complements Snoops verses’ lyrics which sing praise to Rastafarian King Salassie I. This single will be released December 8th and his full album, produced by Major Lazer will be available in February, along with a DVD of the same name chronicling his time in Jamaica embracing Rastafarian culture and music. If the rest of the album incorporates the spirit and sound of Reggae as much as this and the first single “La La La,” it may very well be the best Reggae album since Bob Marley was alive. The first single “La La La” is also included for your listening pleasure below.

[LIST] Hip-Hop Cash Kings: The Richest Rappers

Forbes recently released a list of 2012’s hip-hop “Cash Kings,” ranking the rap world’s top earners. Snagging the #1 spot was Dr. Dre, who wrangled up a whopping $110 million — half of which can be attributed to his Beats by Dre headphone brand. The West Coast producer and emcee was joined by #2 Diddy (buoyed by his Ciroc vodka), #3 Jay-Z (his money raked in from number of places, like the Brooklyn Nets) and #4 Kanye (reaping much of the benefits from Watch The Throne). Eminem, who hasn’t exactly been a popular face for corporate endorsements and sponsorships, still placed at #9, bolstered by his music, selling more albums in the last 10 years than any artist. What are your thoughts, ninjas?

1. Dr. Dre – $110 million
2. Diddy – $45 million
3. Jay-Z – $38 million
4. Kanye West – $35 million
5. Lil Wayne – $27 million
6. Drake – $20.5 million
7. Birdman – $20 million
8. Nicki Minaj – $15.5 million

[Hip-Hop/Reggae] Snoop Lion – La La La (Prod. Diplo & Ariel Rechtshaid)

Snoop Lion, aka Snoop Dogg, makes an interesting move trying his hand at a straight reggae track. I feel like he pulls it off alright, but what really stood out to me was the Diplo production. Always versatile, the Philly-based artist displays his electronic, islandy Major Lazer sound on this one. Few producers can match the minimal, but incredibly intricate style of Diplo. Along with this single, Snoop Lion announces his upcoming reggae LP, Reincarnated. The Doggfather sending good vibrations at a time when we could all use some.
