Snoop Dogg collected a small contingent of West Coast artists for a relatively short mixtape that’s low on filler. Snoop using his international pop star status to support aspiring West Coast rappers is nothing new. Previously, he’s cosigned Terrace Martin and Crooked I. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement: Snoop gives them a weighty cosign and they keep him relevant to the core hip-hop audience.
We Da West, Volume 1 features Kurupt, Daz, Bad Lucc, Problem, Tha Twinz, Nipsey Hussle, and The Hustle Boyz.
