Snoop Dogg – Coolaid

On a 2014 episode of Snoop Dogg‘s YouTube show, GGN, Snoop and 50 Cent mock the ubiquitous flow of rappers like Migos and Future. In less than 30 seconds, the West Coast legend brilliantly illustrates the flows that have homogenized mainstream rap. That continues on Coolaid, Snoop’s highly anticipated 14th studio album. He continues to flex his veteran status with “Coolaid Man”, looking out at the scene: “Big Snoop Dogg/ I do my own thing/ Stays in my own lane/ My rap style is dynamite/ A lot of y’all niggas do sound alike/ You do it how you do’s it/ See, you can blame it on the drugs, or you can blame it on the music/ Where I come from, if you sound like another nigga/ That’s called bitin’, yeah, you the other nigga,” he drops. Whether it’s a direct slap in Migos or Future’s faces, he’s got a point. Originality seems to allude some current hip-hop stars, chasing fads and scenes. But Snoop hasn’t wavered too much stylistically — well, aside from his 2013 reggae album, Reincarnated, released as Snoop Lion.
