Before Snoop Dogg was starring in Corona commercials with Adam Samberg, he was a rapper. In fact, that’s what he was famous for. If your introduction to his music was the Super Bowl halftime show, I’m sorry. That was kind of a pitiful mish-mash of west coast rapper hits from the 90s and 2000s. But when it was good (like, back in the 90s and 2000s), it was real good. I guess somewhere in the late 2000s it went downhill because in 2009 Snoop released a song called “Sensual Seduction” that’s still being played on the radio. I heard it for the first time a few weeks ago and I’m grateful for the 13 years I didn’t know about this song.
I’ve actually forced myself to listen to it a few times just to make sure it’s terrible. As Joe Biden would say, I’ve got two words for you:
I guess Snoop should just stick to commercial acting. The song, “Sensual Seduction,” well, there are quite a few phrases I could pick that show how bad the song is but here’s one part of the lyrics:
I was all in the club havin’ a drink, blowin’ on a sweetSnoop Dogg “Sensual Seduction”
When I peeped this little freak out.
Again, I don’t think anyone’s dying to hear a guy in his 40s (Snoop was around 40 yrs old when the song was released) talk about hitting on women in the club. Equally concerning are these women he’s hitting on. Are they in their 40s? Because if so, there’s a good chance they have kids and probably grandkids at this point.
In his defense, I’ll share that I heard the song on SiriusXM’s TikTok channel, so *maybe* the song is a hit with the TikTok age group? If so, it would baffle my mind and disappointment me greatly in younger generations.
Thanks for dropping in…
