Hip-hop Elites, today marks the 20th year anniversary since “Snoop’sDoggystyle” was delivered to the World.  XXL Magazine got a hold of Kendrick, a notable fan of the rap legend & asked him for a review of Snoop’s debut. Below you’ll find a few quotes. 

On the first time hearing it:

I actually listened to it when I was 6. Believe me, when you’re from Compton, Long Beach, Watts, South Central, Inglewood…that’s all they were playing around you as a kid. I couldn’t escape it. I remember seeing Snoop Dogg on this video station called The Box. Somebody kept ordering “Ain’t Nothing But A G Thang.” I watched videos a lot, so I was familiar with him.

On the influence it had on him:

I’m definitely influenced by that album. The structure. The cohesiveness. The skits. The flow. The melodies Snoop kicked. The raw raps. There wouldn’t be a Kendrick Lamar without Doggystyle.
