A DOG and his debut!  25 years ago today, Snoop Doggy Dogg as he was called then along with Dr. Dre RELEASED ‘Doggystyle’ and CHANGED WEST COAST RAP FOREVER!!

Critics have praised Snoop Doggy Dogg for the lyrical “realism” that he delivers on the album and for his distinctive vocal flow. Despite some mixed criticism of the album initially upon its release, Doggystyle earned recognition from many music critics as one of the most significant albums of the 1990s, as well as one of the most important hip-hop albums ever released.

Doggystyle debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 806,858 copies in its first week alone in the United States, which was the record for a debuting artist and the fastest-selling hip-hop album ever. Doggystyle was included on The Source magazine’s list of the 100 Best Rap Albums; as well as Rolling Stone magazine’s list of Essential Recordings of the ’90s.

Snoop took a moment to reflect on Instagram, throwing up a screenshot of The Source’s original four mic review.

I bet if the SOURCE were to RATE that ALBUM today it would get a SOLID 5 MICS…EASY! REVISIT for yourself..this is a CLASSIC from begining to END!!!

Thank you UNCLE SNOOP and THANK YOU Dr. Dre!
