R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece. Internet leakers caused the release of R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece to be pushed up a week, but that just means the world got to bask in the excitement of Snoop's great return for seven extra days. Upon its release, the ultrahot production team the Neptunes' contribution to the killer lead single "Drop It Like It's Hot" had been duly noted, but lost in all the chatter was how inspired and on-fire Snoop sounds. Any fan keeping up with his street-level mixtape series Welcome to the Chuuch could tell you something new.

R&G; (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece is absolutely crammed with them- a nearly endless amount (18 songs, 78 minutes). I want to get you alone so I can learn you a little better," he purrs on "Stay". Everything is beautiful/ Right down to ya cuticles," he coos on "Perfect". R&G; is Snoop's first album for Star Trak, the label run by fallen-off hip-hop hitmakers the Neptunes, a duo who all but ruled international radio with dazzling sci-fi stomp-clap new wave beats, but who've been starving for hits ever since they switched up their style to overcooked Vegas schmaltz- all bloopy bass and shuffling. drums and swooshing keyboards and unbelievably obnoxious falsetto crooning. The production duo laced five of this album's songs, but their fingerprints are everywhere else here.
