FREE Snoop Dogg Anthem for L.A.: "El Lay" (Download, NSFW)
LA Times blogger Jeff Weiss reports that Snoop Dogg has just released an anthem for L.A. called "El Lay." If Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" is as Broadway-ready and coked-up as a Manhattan evening, Snoop's paean to our fair city is, of course, much more blunted.
"Unsurprisingly," writes Weiss, "Snoop's PR team notes that 'El Lay' is released to coordinate with next month's NBA All-Star game, hosted in the city of Angels -- not to mention his 11th studio album, Doggumentary Music, slated for a March release on Capitol. The latest cut is much very much aligned with Snoop's traditional aesthetic-- a permanently laid glide groove tailor-made for smooth drives in fast cars. Hook man Marty James croons about 'rolling down the 405,' while Snoop describes a typical day 'rolling down Fairfax ... bust a left turn on Pico ... gotta see the Bishop, he got me some gator shoes/Gotta roll to Hollywood/I'm at the House of Blues.' Rest assured, Snoop isn't slipping -- he makes a later stop at his dispensary to buy some kush."
