audio review : Make America Crip Again ( EP ) ... Snoop Dogg

The MACA theme is an obvious reference to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan, but the word “Crip”, which can be read as an adjective or a verb, offers nothing in the way of clever puns or wordplay. It’s a title that doesn’t make much sense. America as a whole never gangbanged. OG Snoop apparently never stopped, at least on record. This EP makes a point of that. Why it ends with a lovey-dovey serenade to a girl beats me.

The best part of the set comes at the end of Three’s Company, a westside party starter featuring OT Genasis and Chris Brown, when the vocals finally make way for the music to bump. And what a funky beat it is. Bassy beats are actually the best thing Snoop’s Crip Again EP has to offer. The rest may as well be reject tracks from his last two albums. Stealing the hook from Slick Rick’s Hey Young World for the opening title cut is especially lame.
