Greetings to you!!! Hope all is well out there. Much has gone down since we last shot the breeze. The Vocal Booth is proud to wish all of you out there some Happy Holidays (From Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, and Of Course Kwanzaa). As the holiday season is upon us, the music keeps on pumping. Timbaland is back another album, OC and AG (Remember them?) of D.I.T.C. fame have released their first collabo album in the vein of Method Man and Redmanâ€¦.BANGER! Gucci Mane had to undergo his major label release behind bars, but the streets love it. Rhianna has released her 4th album to little fanfare, but she gets brownie points for her extremely vivid and emotional writing, and as expected, Chris Brown has flopped. His album is truly having a hard time making any type of connection with the people. I must say that the people have spokenâ€¦Beat a woman, lose your female fans. Women are the #1 consumers of everything. Not a smart move. Letâ€™s get it!!!!
Back just in time with a great last minute stocking stuffer, and fresh off the release of his critically-acclaimed, 10th studio album, Snoop Dogg has jumped back in the driverâ€™s seat with his new album, Malice In Wonderland. Chopped filled with songs about women (Gangsta Love, Pimpinâ€™ Ainâ€™t EZ), his hometown and partying (I Wanna Rock, 1800), and love locked down (Special), Malice In Wonderland is the perfect addition for the â€˜EastSide Riderâ€™ in all of us. Coming in 14 songs (with 2 interludes) deep and just under 50 minutes, Snoop Dogg has crafted a jewel. From warm, simmering, and powerful G-Funk melodies reminiscent of Ice Cubeâ€™s Lethal Injection, DJ Quikâ€™s Way 2 Fonky, and a sprinkle of E-40â€™s In A Major Way, the production quality is definitely a strong suit for â€˜The Bossâ€™. If there is a drawback to Malice In Wonderland, it would be a little too many songs with weak guest appearances (Soulja Boy, Problem) and no presence of The DPGC Collective (sans DJ EZ D*CK). Malice In Wonderland was an album created by Snoop Dogg as a testament to the prowess of his musical legacy and current stylistic influence. This is also an album that celebrates the power of loyalty to oneâ€™s craft, crew, and core audience. The beautifully crafted â€˜Specialâ€™ featuring Brandy & Pharell is the perfect celebration to those whoâ€™ve stood by Calvin Broadus from day one and still to this day. The Boss Lady, Mrs. Broadus, is also a big influence on how this album was crafted and arranged together; Snoop is 10 toes down in love with this woman By all means grab yourself a copy, grab a Swisher Sweet, and be sure not to forget your favorite poison of choiceâ€¦.this will ensure that you will rock.
