Falling off 2

I was writing this thing about Snoop, responding to the lameness of him in Mimi’s ‘Say Something’ (a good song, I think), and then I realized that Tom Breihan already did (http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/s/snoop-dogg/r-and-g.shtml): “Snoop Dogg is old. He’s not the same kid who turned up out of nowhere on “Deep Cover”. He no longer possesses that menacing lean, that cool, dangerous charisma, that effortless way of just rapping through the beat like he was always a part of it and it was always a part of him. These days, he’s that haggard-looking, vaguely creepy middle-ager who was in Starsky & Hutch, the “P.I.M.P.” video, and some pornos. He’s always hanging out with that pimp bishop guy. He says “wizzle wizzle” a lot. He comes out with an album every couple of years, and no one pays any attention because Dr. Dre doesn’t have anything to do with it.”
