He may call himself Snoop Lion but he’ll always be Snoop Doggy Dogg to us! Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Snoop Dogg Songs.
For this list, we’ve chosen our entries based on a combination of the artist’s fan favorites and their most commercially successful songs. Tracks where he is a featured artist have also been considered and/or included, as long as they exhibit his excellent lyricism, flow, and signature West Coast style.
#10: “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)” feat. Nate Dogg, Warren G, Nanci Fletcher & Kurupt
The title of this song says it all. Snoop crafted a smooth, R&B infused anthem for the guy who isn’t afraid to be a player. With raunchy lyrics talking about multiple women and a code of putting homies first, “Ain’t No Fun” also features multiple rappers along for the ride. Thanks to a fun and bouncy beat, it’s a bit hard to get too invested in what they’re trying to say, but does it really matter when you’ve got a track this light and laid-back?
#9: “Bitch Please” feat. Xzibit & Nate Dogg
No Limit Top Dogg (1999)
With help from Nate Dogg and Xzibit, Snoop hits hard on this track! Opening the song, Xzibit delivers a hard-hitting verse calling out those lesser MCs. His words bleed into a psychedelic chorus sung by Snoop that gives “Bitch Please” a flavor of weirdness and originality that’s missing from most rap songs. Add Snoop’s voice, which perfectly balances playful and threatening, but always with that sense of cool, and Snoop found himself cracking the Billboard Hot 100 and earning a top 40 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart.
#8: “Beautiful” feat. Pharrell & Uncle Charlie Wilson
Paid tha Cost to Be Da Bo$$ (2003)
Snoop paired with The Neptunes to create this smooth and addictive earworm. Pharrell croons the chorus, which compliments a woman for her beauty. Snoop’s deeper vocals make a nice contrast as he raps in his trademark throaty growl. “Beautiful” also allowed Snoop to show his softer side as he raps about a girl from his past. Meanwhile, the hip hop and west coast rap tune was a critical and commercial success, charting within the top 10 of the Hot 100 and winning The Neptunes a Grammy for Producer of the Year.
#7: “Tha Shiznit”
Jazz flute and a series of “da da da”s in the background would probably sound ridiculous in any other hip-hop song, but “Tha Shiznit” has got Snoop to bring it all together. With the rapper’s braggadocio lyrics and the signature snarl of his voice to toughen up the instrumentation, this Doggystyle number is far from cheesy. And by the end of the song, even reluctant listeners will bounce to it.
#6: “Doggy Dogg World” feat. Tha Dogg Pound & The Dramatics
Meant to be a Europe-only single, this song reached stateside due to its music video making the rounds. The video may have brought it to our attention but it was the rapper’s lyrics and wordplay that made it a staple. Snoop lets it be known early on that he’s an OG in the rap game and that lesser rappers were already stealing his style. His guest MCs, Kurupt and Daz Dillinger, echo his point, and make “Doggy Dogg World” a trio of cool.
#5: “Still D.R.E.” by Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg
The Chronic 2001 (1999)
Co-written by Jay-Z, among others, this tune has gotta be one of the best collaborations between Dre and Snoop. Though it was designed to serve as Dre’s return to the hip-hop world, it’s Snoop’s voice on the intro, chorus, and outro that resonate most with listeners when he proclaims that his friend is back. Their rhymes and the song’s overall feel replicate that west coast hip-hop sound they’d became famous for. “Still D.R.E.” also sold over four million copies and was certified four times Platinum.
#4: “Drop It Like It’s Hot” feat. Pharrell
R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece (2004)
Snoop and The Neptunes proved they could do no wrong with this follow-up collaboration to “Beautiful.” The song is an instant earworm from the drop of the first beat and the “Snooooop” that follows. As for the title, Snoop took an already popular phrase for a dance move and put his own stamp of approval on it. “Drop It Like It’s Hot” also became his first chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100, which was a spot that it held for three weeks in 2004.
#3: “Who Am I? (What’s My Name?)”
On his first solo single, Snoop made sure to set himself apart from other rappers. First off, a chorus of women sings out his name, making sure listeners won’t forget it. Then there’s the beat and background interpolations of songs by George Clinton and Funkadelic, which create a chilled-out vibe to contrast his rhymes. Peaking at number 8 on the Hot 100, “What’s My Name” remains Snoop’s best-selling single to date.
#2: “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” by Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg
The Chronic (1992)
Even though this song appears on Dr. Dre’s album, it certainly wouldn’t be what it is today without Snoop. With giving credit to Long Beach and Compton, the home turf of the two rappers, “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” also sees the duo rapping about street life over an infectious beat. But it’s also an anthem that captures their pride at making it past its harsh realities while still remaining a G in the process, and that makes it a top two contender.
Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- “G Funk Intro” feat. Dr. Dre & The Lady of Rage
- “Murder Was the Case” feat. Dat Nigga Daz
- “That’s That” feat. R. Kelly
Tha Blue Carpet Treatment (2006)
- “Vato” feat. B-Real
Tha Blue Carpet Treatment (2006)
- “Ups & Downs”
R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece (2004)
##1: “Gin and Juice”
If there’s ever been one career-defining song for Snoop, it would have to be this track. On “Gin and Juice,” he helped introduce West Coast cruising culture to the world. The beauty of this song is that it’s so simple—he’s merely talking about hanging out with his friends as they drink, drive, and smoke. And yes, the chorus is now a source of some of the most iconic phrases in hip-hop. Nominated for a Grammy and charting within the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10, the single is the Snoop song and a cultural mainstay that’s been covered many times.
