    Charts Don't Lie: May 23

    This week saw the debut of Snoop Dogg's Pharrell-helmed funk opus, which had a pretty modest opening, placing at number 14. While Tech N9ne blew us away with his top 5 debut last week, he fell considerably this cycle, moving all the way down to number 20. As for the rest of the rap releases, almost everything has been slowly descending the charts incrementally. We're hoping to see another big album over the summer to breathe some life back into the rap charts, and possibly give Drake some competition in the race to be the first platinum rap album of 2015 (or 2014 for that matter).

    Straight Outta Compton, the long-awaited N.W.A. biopic is on its way, and while the focus is obviously on Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and the gang, Snoop Dogg will also be portrayed in the feature. In an interview with DJ Whoo Kidd, Snoop revealed that he actually had someone in mind for the role. “I would've preferred Nipsey Hussle for the look," said Snoop, revealing that while the actor who plays him did a great job, he doesn't have the same uncanny resemblance as the Crenshaw rapper. "But Nipsey wanted to do his own thing, which I respect.”

    Seriously, is there a more versatile rap star than Snoop Dogg? Name another rapper who has done full albums of reggae, funk and rap over the last 5 years alone. Or an MC who’s released music on Death Row, No Limit, Star Trak, Mad Decent, and Stones Throw. Or one who’s released albums with Wiz Khalifa, toured with Korn, and acted alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

    With the release of his newest album Bush this past week, Snoop Dogg dived into the funk world alongside producer Pharrell, but funk is hardly a new look for the California MC. Along with help from OGs like Stevie Wonder and Charlie Wilson and MCs like Kendrick Lamar, T.I. and Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg was able to deliver 40 minutes of straight funk, which happens to be the music that influenced his entire career.

As a young West Coast rapper under the wing of Dr. Dre, Snoop adopted a pretty a gangsta persona, or rather, he actually was a gangsta.

Pharrell" tag, as the super-producer will be providing instrumental and vocal contributions to the whole album, which Snoop recently revealed would have very little rapping on it.
