With today's proliferation of mass media, pop culture icons have a tendency to seem overly ubiquitous. They stare at us from the covers of glossy magazines, talk to us from both the small and silver screen, interact with us through our laptops and hypnotize us with their inescapable hit singles. But too often these days, while our biggest stars may be omnipresent in our lives, we feel no genuine connection to them or their artistry.
Yet, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg is different. While, he's everywhere, all of the time--from The View to 106th & Park, Sportscenter to One Life To Live, and from commercials with Adidas to Pepsi Max--Snoop's continuing appeal to his legions of fans stems from a true bond that they have built with him through his music. And like Bigg Snoop, the music's been everywhere. Whether it's a stadium stage or the screen on your mobile phone, Snoop has most likely rocked it.
Now, as anticipation steadily climbs for his quickly approaching 11th studio album, Doggumentary, Tha Doggfather is continuing to enhance his connection with his fans through his music. Not only is Snoop utilizing his unrivaled digital presence to offer his fans inside access to the creative process behind the Doggumentary, but the album itself acts a memoir of sorts--both chronicling his journey in the game thus far and plotting where his path will lead him in the future.
