    Was my hearing damaged in the 00's?? I remember I didn't like this album when it came out but I've just spun it 3x in a row front to back and God d--- this is nearly a masterpiece. Remove maybe 2 songs and this is heaven to the ears. What the f--- was wrong with me when this came out??

    My cousin got an iPod nano that year and I put on a bunch of music for him. He played Vato non stop, then started listening to the whole album, then got balls deep into hip-hop for a long time. Very fun album.

    After leaving death row it was a popular opinion that snoop fell off. And people just went with it.

    blue carpet treatment was fantastic. And snoop still makes decent music to this day

    Imagine is one of the most beautiful rap songs I ever heard. My favorite Dre / Snoop collab besides Still Dre. That beat >>>

    And yeah BCT is a classic

    If I can be bothered later I might try to rank his entire discography. Won't be easy though.

    "That's That" is also a b-----r. Used to listen to that song all the time back then.

    The Blue Carpet Treatment is easily one of his best albums. His 2nd best after Doggystyle for me personally.

    Snoop doesn't have many solid albums though. He usually has a s--- ton of filler. But he still puts out some great stuff even to this day. You just got to got to filter out the trash.

    Blue Carpet’s worst tracks are the ones between around Here and Imagine from memory. All filler, even the Ice Cube feature was which was very disappointing. But there was only like 4-5 bad ones on a list of 21 songs, there’s a review I did somewhere on here

    I love this album. Favourite snoop project aside from doggystyle. I was so hyped to buy it when it dropped. That’s that s--- was a b-----r

    Imagine, 10 Little Crips, Thats That, Vato, Round Here... fantastic album
