Snoop is back, and thankfully sans-Lion.
Here’s a surprise – LA rap veteran Snoop Dogg has pieced together a brand new single and it’s actually pretty good. Eschewing the shonky dub and EDM of the Snoop Lion project, ‘Passenger Seat’ finds Snoop on rare form, rhyming lazily over a beat from Taylor Gang affiliate Cardo. It’s decidedly West Coast stuff, and to be honest it’s just refreshing to hear Snoop actually doing his thing again.
The track is the first to be culled from Cardo’s forthcoming mixtape Mental $tates which is set to drop in August.
