Top 50 Best Snoop Dogg Songs of All Time

When Snoop Dogg first burst onto the music scene, no one had ever seen someone quite like him before. Gang-bangin’ Crip pimp gangsta rappers were very thin on the ground in 1990.

But not for long… 

South Central LA and Long Beach were about to become infamous! Would Dr. Dre ever have been so popular or successful if he didn’t have tha Doggfather by his side? Probably not, even though Dre was already a noted record producer, rapper, and founding member of NWA.

Over a glittering 30-year career with over 35 million albums sold worldwide and countless cameo rap appearances on other people’s tracks, Snoop is an institution. 

He transcends rap music and encapsulated that cool bandana-wearing, corn roll-having, blunt-smokin’ philosophy with a flow smoother than a baby’s bottom. So, let’s take a look at the best Snoop Dogg songs of all time.

Best Snoop Dogg Songs of All Time


Top 50 Best Snoop Dogg Songs of All Time

1 Nuthin’ But a G-Thang (Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg)

Okay, I get it, Nuthin’ But a G-Thang was on Dr. Dre’s first solo album, The Chronic, and what a masterpiece it was. The album was an instant classic thanks to the Snoop and Dre anthem, “Nuthin’ But A G-Thang.” 

It sounded like LA confined within a hip-hop beat. This track was the first time I ever heard Snoop rap, and it blew my mind. I remember thinking, “Can rap music really sound like this?” It changed music forever, never mind rap. 

The relaxed and laid-back vibes to a backdrop of high-pitched synth sound first created a specific style of rap music called G-Funk (Gangster Funk). The way Snoop and Dre rapped back to back on the song was a taste of things to come. Hip-Hop was changed forever. 

2 Gin and Juice

Snoop’s debut album, Doggystyle, was one of the most eagerly awaited rap albums of all time. And one of the best-selling. After the success of The Chronic, Snoop had become the epicenter of rap music on a worldwide stage, with “Gin and Juice” being the second single off his new album. 

Fans expected laidback flows, cool rhymes, and G-funk beats courtesy of Dr. Dre, and it didn’t let anyone down. It surpassed all expectations. Some say this is Snoop Dogg’s most iconic song

I wouldn’t argue with that…

If you ever get a chance to watch the official video, please do. It’s hilarious. The entire song is about smoking indo and sippin’ on gin and juice, being laid back, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind. 

If you are abducted by aliens, and they want to hear a song that epitomizes that special Snoop flow and attitude, this is the one. I just hope you don’t get probed too much.

3 Deep Cover (featuring Dr. Dre)

“Deep Cover” is the first-ever release where the dynamic duo of Snoop and Dre rapped together. It’s not “G-Thang” or “Dre Day,” contrary to popular belief. This is one of the greatest Snoop Dogg songs

It had a raw boom-bap style beat and rhyme scheme patterns that sound like a classic 1990s New York Hip-Hop joint. Once again, Dr. Dre produced the beat while he and Snoop laid down the bars that felt like someone creeping through the hood up to no good.

The funky bassline and spooky synths have made this a favorite with rap music aficionados. And, even though it was never on a Dre or Snoop album, it was part of the Deep Cover movie soundtrack. 

I had to put this song in the Top 50…

That’s because it was one of the original Snoop and Dre songs. It perfectly merged a top-notch beat and hardcore rhymes that became a standard for the duo going forward. This is where it all started.

4 Murder Was the Case

Here is another Snoop classic off the Doggystyle album. It was released as the final single. The album version and the single version have slightly different mixes, so you might want to check both of them out. 

This was a very succinct tune at the time… 

That’s because Snoop was embroiled in a potential murder case in the lead-up to the release of the album. He was eventually acquitted by the judge.

This song tells the fictional story of Snoop getting shot on the streets and dying in the hospital. Then he’s brought back to life in the hospital by a voice that can only be described as the devil. Snoop sold his soul to Satan in the tune to come back to life and have many riches.

Unfortunately, his life belonged to Beelzebub from that point until the rest of eternity. Let’s hope it was only a fictional story on Snoop’s part. Illuminati confirmed?

5 Drop It Like It’s Hot!

Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the nostalgia of Snoop’s 1990s gangster rap releases. But his career is still going strong today. Therefore, the best Snoop Dogg songs of all time are not limited to one decade.

“Drop It Like It’s Hot” came out in the early-2000s and was produced by Pharrell Williams, who also cameoed on the tune. It’s an upbeat and funky commercial rap tune that ranked high on the Billboard Charts and across the world.

It’s catchier than herpes… 

And stays with you forever in the same way. You just can’t shake off the catchy hook chorus and the stripped-down beat. For sure, it’s much different from Snoop’s earlier stuff. But that’s a nod to his longevity and versatility as an artist. 

This club banger had booties shaking from Crenshaw to Katmandu and is still very popular with modern audiences. Have a listen, and you know why it is one of the most popular Snoop Dogg songs ever.

6 Beautiful (feat Pharrell Williams)

I couldn’t talk about Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams collaborations without mentioning one of his more Pop-style joints, “Beautiful.” 

Pharrell sings on the hook in the chorus while Snoop lays down the suave lyrics over a very catchy and up-tempo beat with an exotic and soulful guitar riff. This is one of my personal best Snoop Dogg tunes and one that kept the dancefloor filled to the rafters back in the early-2000s.

The official music video is also worth a watch… 

It was filmed in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and features some of the hottest women you will ever see. Snoop and Pharrell light up this music video, and it’s a real pleasure to watch. 

This is the sort of tune that every Snoop fan should have in their repertoire. And, if you don’t, you should probably get a cap popped in your ass. But, enough about my Saturday night out on the town.

7 The Next Episode (feat Dr. Dre and Eminem)

As the immortal words from Nate Dogg, “smoke week every day,” blasted out of every club speaker and radio station at the turn of the Millennia, Snoop and Dre were back together for Chronic 2001 and the epic single “The Next Episode.” 

The boys had done it again almost ten years after The Chronic hit the streets. This time Dre was back with Snoop, But he also had Eminem, Scott Storch, Xzibit, and even more talent in tow and along for the ride. In a bouncy Crip-blue lowrider Cadillac, no doubt. 

It was an exciting time to be a rap music fan… 

Everyone had wondered if Dre and Snoop were still friends after they both unceremoniously left Death Row Records after the whole Suge Knight debacle. 

We found out that the dynamic duo from South Central were very much still homies and still blazing the blunts together after all these years. As a result, you got one of the most well known Snoop Dogg songs.

8 What’s My Name?

The first single on the Doggystyle album was the classic Snoop tune, “What’s My Name?” It was a very fun and friendly, and accessible tune that introduced Snoop on the solo tip and prepped us perfectly for the soon-to-be-released album. 

The Dogg won’t win any awards for literature with the lyrics, but Snoop is all about the flow. And, on this one, he flowed like the River Nile. 

If you didn’t know his name at that point, you soon did…

The up-tempo and funk-laden Dr. Dre beat and bassline epitomized the G-Funk sound of that time, and I loved it. 

This is another tune where you need to check the official video. Snoop and his Dogg Pound bros (Daz Dillinger and Kurupt) were turned from ghetto scoundrels to actual dogs using the best CGI technology of the time. 

The video is worth watching, but the single on CD, vinyl, or MP3 should already be in your collection. And if not, I’ll have to set the Dogg Pound on your weak ass. 

9 Lodi Dodi

One of the best Snoop Dogg songs of all time from his Doggystyle album was a remake and revamped cover version of the Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh rap classic, “Lodi Dodi.” You find out on this tune that Snoop is a conceited bastard because the mirror on the wall told him so. 

The rap is lots of fun and delivered in a laid-back style with lots of storytelling about some hilarious situations in the hood. Even though it was never released as a single, it’s one of the standout tracks on the album.

Snoop has always been a massive Slick Rick fan, who is possibly the greatest rap storyteller of all time. And this remake is an homage to the original, but Snoop makes it his own. Rarely is the cover version better than the original, but there is a case to be made for Dogg’s version of “Lodi Dodi.” 

10 Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)

With so many amazing tracks in Snoop Dogg’s discography, I was conflicted about which joint to place in the tenth position. I opted for “Ain’t No Fun” because it’s quite possibly one of the funniest rap songs of all time, with some of the filthiest sex talk imaginable. 

Snoop Dogg is joined by Nate Dogg, Kurupt, and Warren G. The beat is so smooth and delicious, and the rhyming by every emcee is impeccable.

Warren G and Nate Dogg of Regulate fame kill it on this track. But, if you are squeamish or you hate explicit songs with graphic dirty talk, you should probably give it a miss. They leave nothing to the imagination, much like a Kim Kardashian dress. 

I still have nightmares about Warren G’s big and bouncy testicles now, and it’s almost 30 years since I first heard it. Some things in life you can never un-see or un-listen to, and this is one of those things. Intrigued? Of course, you are but don’t take my word for it, find out for yourself.

Best Snoop Dogg Songs of All Time – Final Thoughts 

Trying to figure out the best Snoop Dogg songs is not easy. Snoop Doggy Dogg, real name Calvin Broadus, has released 19 studio albums from 1992 to 2023 with 17 Grammy nominations. No wonder I had so much difficulty choosing the best ones. There were just so many.

I could’ve made this list at least three times over… 

So, it only makes sense to pick out some honorable mentions. Some recommended classic Snoop cuts that you check out are: 

  • “Dre Day” and “Deez Nuts” from The Chronic album. 
  • “Doggy Dogg World” and “The Shiznit” from the Doggystyle LP

If you want to hear other Snoop Dogg collaborations, I would suggest you check out “Young, Wild, and Free,” which features Wiz Khalifa and Bruno Mars. Let’s hope Snoop makes it through another 30 years. And, considering he was once an LA gang member and he’s still alive, anything is possible.

Until next time, happy listening, playa.
