The Best Of When Snoop Dogg Manned The No Limit Tank

A celebration of how far the now multi-hyphenated mogul has come.

Last night, VH1 aired the season finale for season 2 of Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, the network’s 2016 breakout hit show. It's not a stretch to say that if you asked nearly all Snoop Dogg fans in the ‘90s to make a list of places they thought the MC would end up in 20 years, "on basic cable with Martha Stewart," would not be on it.

It’s a testament to how far Snoop has come, because, despite wild success, the ‘90s were a turbulent time for the Doggfather. He faced a murder charge, an unknown assailant killed his labelmate 2pac—a situation that led Snoop to fear for his life, and he escaped an onerous contract with a crumbling Death Row Records.

Enter Master P. The iconoclastic visionary saved Snoop from the embers of an up-in-smoke Death Row and helped engineer a new beginning that set Snoop on the path that led him to where he is today. Snoop ultimately released three albums for No Limit: The Game Is To Be Told, Not To Be Sold, No Limit Top Dogg, and The Last Meal.

In honor of Snoop’s pivotal transition from life solely as a rapper to the actor, TV host, web-series purveyor, marijuana-entrepreneur, multi-hyphenated mogul that he is today, dig into this playlist of some of Snoop’s best songs from his time as a member of the No Limit Soldiers. This playlist spans the gamut from the classics in his catalogue to deep cuts to narrative-heavy yarns to some of his most emotionally affecting songs.
