Snoop Dogg and Madlib are two West Coast hip-hop legends that have each been extremely successful in creating their own artistic niches for themselves over the years. However, Snoop and Madlib had never collaborated on a track before despite their long-running individual careers. Well that has finally changed with this track “Cadillacs”, which is being featured on the third installment of Snoop’s That’s My Work mixtape series hosted by DJ Drama (of all places). Snoop Dogg has undergone a funky resurgence recently based off his joint project with producer Dam-Funk, who is a fellow Stones Throw label member with Madlib. That connection may have helped in the creation of this song, and the final product certainly lives up to its high expectations.

“Cadillacs” is a groovy record that features the consistent Madlib behind the boards doing what he does best; flipping infectious soul samples and adding the appropriate drums. Snoop Dogg uses his laid back flows over the beat and it results in another excellent piece of contemporary G-funk rap music. The only bad thing about this record is that we wish it was appearing on an official Snoop Dogg album as the collaboration with Madlib lives up to the hype. Don’t let this nostalgic West Coast track fly under the radar as we will continue to enjoy Snoop Dogg’s musical output as of late.

Listen to “Cadillacs” below and let us know what you think!

    Except that stones throw didn’t release this, or any new Madlib record since 2009 or somethin. Give Madlib some credit.

      Was giving Stones Throw credit for allowing the awesome musical chemistry between Dam-Funk and Snoop Dogg to flourish…which definitely had to have played a part in Snoop getting Madlib on the track’s production…as mentioned we think Madlib is a legend and one of the best producers of all time.

      Appreciate the comment.
