Presents The Big Squeeze (Explicit)
by Various Artists
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Koch Records
More than a spotlight of the artists (War Zone, Western Union and Kurupt) on Snoop's imprint, the second installment in the Big Squeeze mixtape series is intended to highlight the Dogg's promise as a beatsmith. Working under the name N*gg*racci, he produces a majority of the tracks here, and his work is a cross between the Dr. Dre-formulated g-funk he rode in on and the more experimental worldly pop of recent collaborators the Neptunes. At times it sounds skeletal and amateurish, but at least most songs boast verses by Snoop.
