Snoop Dogg, 'Malice N Wonderland' (EMI)

5
Malice N Wonderland
Critical Mass
Label: EMI

by Thomas Golianopoulos

These days, Snoop Dogg is as much a multiplatform brand as a rapper, so it's no surprise that his tenth solo album doesn't try to rework the formula. The Dogg-father smoothly dispenses boasts about his set, his weed intake, and his pimp hand. He also spells out his name-a lot. Two guest appearances, though, break the perfunctory mood: "Different Languages" features a brilliantly weird, whimsical hook by Jazmine Sullivan and "Pronto" answers the million-dollar question: What could possibly be worse than Soulja Boy rapping? Soulja Boy rapping in Auto-Tune.
