Ego Trippin' (Explicit)
by Snoop Dogg
Released: Mar 2008
Ego Trippin' is both more nostalgic and more R&B than past efforts, with tracks veering from slushy '70s soul ("Waste of Time") to early '80s vocodor funk (sleazy lead single "Sexual Eruption" and "SD is Out," featuring New Jack architect Teddy Riley). The Gap Band shows up for "Can't Say Goodbye," while "Cool" sounds like it could be an outtake from Purple Rain. Though he occasionally veers from this focus ("My Medicine" is a country song dedicated to Johnny Cash, "a real American gangster"), this album is a largely cohesive, tongue-in-cheek ode to old-school R&B.
