Fresh off the triumphant success of one of the tightest albums of his career, big Snoop Dogg returns with a collaborative effort that showcases the hottest artists on his own label, Doggystyle Records. THE BIG SQUEEZE also displays Snoop's overlooked talents with beats. As he explains it on the intro, "I wanted to produce this whole (*ahem*) record from start to finish and I wanted to put out all the (*ahem*) artists that I'm (*ahem*) workin' wit. Ya dig?" Over 15 tracks, the Dogg shows and proves himself behind the boards under the alias "Niggaracci," putting together a hard-banging West Coast sound highly influenced by Dr. Dre (lucky for Snoop, he was mentored by one of the best), with traces of the bouncier pop that Snoop has been known to delve into with the likes of Timbaland and the Neptunes. On the whole, THE BIG SQUEEZE is a gangsta party featuring many of the same Cali mainstays who made strong showings on THE BLUE CARPET TREATMENT such as Tha Dogg Pound, Bad Lucc, Western Union, Damani, Azure, and War Zone (the group made of MC Eiht, Goldie Loc, and Kam).
