The former Snoop Dogg (here calling himself "Snoopzilla") joins L.A. producer Dam-Funk, whose rubbery tracks are marked by an off-kilter grace more intimate, cooled-out and Californian than his ancestors in Parliament or Zapp. And while Snoop's voice is an easy match for the sound – both are low-key but hard-hitting – most of the tracks don't quite cohere. Exceptions include "Hit da Pavement" and the Steve Arrington collaboration "1Question?," which is as vital and unrepentantly weird as DJ Quik's continued experiments in G-funk. Still better than Snoop's forays into reggae.
