Gin and Carbon Scoring



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Doggystyle, the 1993 debut album from Snoop Doggy Dogg. Entered the Billboard Charts at #1, the first debut album to do so. Features the hits "Gin and Juice," "Who An I (What's My Name)," and "Doggy Dogg World." Also features numerous spoken interludes dealing with balls, guns, and weed.

As usual, I started the album right after the second drumroll in the 20th Century Fox fanfare.


- Snoop says "Damn!" in "Bathtub" at the exact same moment the Star Wars logo appears onscreen.

- As the opening crawl fades away, Dr. Dre says, "It's time to get busy in this motherfucker, like we always do about this time!" at the end of "Bathtub."

- The opening line of "Gin and Juice" ("with so much drama in the L-B-C...") coincides with the shot of Darth Vader looking at the dead Rebel soldiers aboard the Tantive IV.

- The line "some of these niggas is so deceptive" is heard in "Doggy Dogg World" as Obi-Wan and Luke come upon the Jawa massacre, which was perpetrated by the Empire but made to look like the work of Tusken Raiders.

- The phrase "don't make me grab my gat" is heard in "Pump Pump" as Han Solo slowly reaches for his gun to shoot Greedo.


Not much to say about this one, except it was weaker than Clark Kent after trippin' on some Kryptonite. Word.
