The track listing on the vinyl labels uses continuous numbering (1 to 13).

The featuring credit on D3 is listed as "Featuring Lil Malik, aka Lil Hershey Loc".


Produced by the infamous Dr. Dre with assistance from Mr. Suge Knight, Doggy Style was the first solo outing by Calvin Broadus a.k.a. Snoop Doggy Dog. Incorporating a straight gangsta vibe into the deep funk grooves pioneered by George Clinton and his Parliament-Funkadelic ensemble, Snoop and Dre dogmatically invent the "G-Funk" aesthetic. Espousing an irreverent dope, bitches, and guns mentality, Doggy Style garnered the Parental Advisory for explicit lyrics it sorely deserved.

Still, Snoop's lazy-yet-acrobatic rap/drawl is distinctive and undeniably entertaining. With additional vocals from Tha Dogg Pound (Nate Dogg, Warren G, Kurupt, and Dat Nigger Daz), this disc is deceptively professional and musically quite slick. "Murder Was The Case" is practically an inner-city classic, while "Ain't No Fun" is another blunted, urban-rap anthem. Woof!



This album is better than "The Chronic." There is no doubt about it. While "The Chronic" was without a doubt a hip-hop classic and a landmark album in g-funk (which Dre basically invented), "Doggystyle" is the result of both Dre refining his sound and Snoop refining his rhyme. It's a beautiful thing... This album is filled with laid-back grooves ("Lodi Dodi") and out-and-out party anthems ("What's My Name?," "Ain't No Fun") alongside horror-filled urban narratives ("Murder Was the Case," "Serial Killa").

It's the perfect balance of gangsta, playa and pimp all rolled into a fat blunt for all to smoke on. Sure, it was graphic... sure, it was violent... sure, it probably offended the majority of people who listened to it... but it sure was fun, wasn't it? Get this album... if you're a real hip-hop head, this deserves to be in your collection.

Snoop Dogg - Who Am I ? (What's My Name)


© 1993 Death Row/Interscope/Atlantic Records. "Who Am I? (What's My Name?)", is the solo debut single from rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg's debut album Doggystyle. The song was a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The song, produced by Dr. Dre, features interpolations of Funkadelic's "(Not Just) Knee Deep" as its bassline and George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" in its chorus. The chorus actually says "Atomic doggy dog", with original vocals mixed in. Additional vocals were contributed by Jewell, Tony Green and Dr.Dre himself. The follow-up version of it titled "Snoop Dogg" was released on his album, Tha Last Meal. The cover artwork is by Joe Cool. The song features the line "Shit that I drop 'cuz ya know it don't stop / Mr. One Eight Seven on a motherfuckin' cop", a reference to the "Deep Cover" by Dr. Dre and Snoop. The song briefly features Dr. Dre, though he is uncredited he is clearly rapping near the end of the first verse.
