Sample Set #156: Doggystyle



You can't not enjoy this album right here. In my opinion, though not as musically/stylistically/(sub-)culturally revolutionary as The Chronic, Snoopy's debut is definitely more enjoyable from start to finish, appropriately beginning and ending with Curtis Mayfield-sampling tracks. Bottom line, Doggystyle is my idea of a summertime record. Hopefully the 35 samples featured here oughta prolong some barbeques this summer. :)

P.S. Anytime you see me dropping a link on Hotfile with no Rapidshare mirror(s), that's because the .zip file was larger than 200 MB. Rapidshare doesn't support file sizes above 200 MB for free users (i.e. most of you), but Hotfile does. If you've got a couple bones to spare, I'd suggest giving Hotfile a try. Movin' on up!

P.P.S. In 2009, I released about 10 sample sets. Epic fail on my part. I need to get back on my A game. And that's nothin' but the dog in me... Got any requests? Hit the comment section. One.

P.P.P.S./Update (7/19/2010): The Chronic samples are available, too!

  1. I've been wanting a Statik Selektah 100 Proof one but I assume that breaks the indie rule right? Also I've been diggin old Ant production lately and The Lucy Ford: Atmosphere EP's would be tight to see a sample set.

  3. @Legit: Yeah, anything by Statik is out of the question. I even spoke to him in '08 about this:

    Didn't speak to Ant, but the same would apply :/ Sorry!

    @Jake: That one's been on my to-do list for years. The main reason I held off on it was because I really, really, really wanted to include the "Church for Thugs" sample... but I don't know the source! Coincidentally, I've asked Just Blaze about it on multiple occasions. He usually ignored me (lol). But I caught him on Ustream one day and asked him again. He answered. But it wasn't the answer I was looking for :(

    He wouldn't give it away. And I don't blame him. It's been held under wraps for 5 years. Gotta respect that. So if I drop a Documentary set, it'd unfortunately be missing that track. What else can I do!? :)

  5. Dope...I'd say The Chronic is also more enjoyable than Doggystyle though.

  6. It's cool. Mos Def "The Ecstatic" would be pretty nice. I was trying to get the sample for "Priority" (Bobby Hebb's "Flower") and it's damn near impossible tho. Other suggestions: Alchemist or Fashawn if he's not too underground.

  8. DILATED PEOPLES or EVIDENCE sample set..NOTES TO SELF sample set..DJ KO sample set..GET BUSY COMMITTEE sample set..APATHY sample set..EL DA SENSEI & THE RETURNERS sample set..JR & PH7 sample set

  9. @Legit: The Ecstatic is on my to-do list. Not sure about Al or Fash.

    @SND: I never released a Doggystyle sample set.

    @skeme: With exception to maybe Dilated Peoples, I wouldn't feel right compiling sets for any of those artists. Too underground.

    I'm new to your site and as a 30 something hip hop fan from what I consider the "golden age" and as a fellow west coaster,I gotta say I love what you got going on. Keep doing your thing, I'll keep checking you out.
