On the West Coast, gangsta-rap became mainstream via albums such as
Doggystyle (1993) by Long Beach native
Snoop Doggy Dogg (Calvin Broadus), produced by the same Dr Dre who had
debuted him as the rapper of The Chronic.
Helped by a colossal marketing campaign (he was on the cover of three music
magazines even before releasing a record), his debut album became one of
the fastest selling albums of all times. Before the album came out, Broadus
was indicted for killing a man.
The Doggfather (1996)
Paid Da Cost To Be Tha Boss (2003)
R&G (2005) and
Ego Trippin' (2008), replete with analog synths and vocoders,
tried to experiment with new sounds but were also overflowing with useless
Malice N Wonderland (2009) tries to prove that the rapper is still
relevant, but it takes six producers and ten guest stars.
