Happy Valentines Day, everybody.
DJ Khalil has become the go-to producer for big luxurious beats. No mainstream rap release is complete without a shiny contribution for the Self Scientific alum. With a title like “I Don’t Need No Bitch,” an Aftermath staff producer on the beat, and a Devin the Dude verse, you’d expect this to sound like a Dre and Snoop reunion. But there’s nothing g-funk about it. Shit, “Kush” doesn’t even sound like a Dre and Snoop reunion (also produced by Khalil, incidentally).
Snoop Dogg is better known for his TV/movie/commercial appearances than music nowadays. He’s the weed smoking cartoon character who shows up when it’s time for a hip-hop joke. The leaks from Snoop’s new album indicate that he’s trying to be taken more seriously. “I Don’t Need No Bitch” is as dignified as it gets for a song about bitches from an album called Doggumentary.
