I'm chilling here drinking this cheap tequila thinking about shit like this. Snoop has one classic album, and the the rest trash minus a few. He can only survive off social media because no one is checking for his raps. His last good song was sexual seduction. I've never heard anyone on 20 years say "hey you heard that new snoop". The only way he was ever good is when the DOC was ghost writing his lyrics for doggy style. No one is check8ng for this clown

I agree about Snoop being the biggest rap gimmick ever. He's so annoying. I don't see how anyone can see otherwise. He still has good songs, but most of them are Death Row material

his album with wiz came out four years after sensual seduction and it had a hit on it--and its also a really good album that alot of wiz fans fuck with

While i can relate to the feeling that he's gimmicky...Hes always appearing on tv and doing movies, he's good at being a celebrity...and this is what makes his rap persona seem a little bit less authentic--like so many others (kanye, jay z, action bronson). Still a national treasure with many classics under his belt

Kanye and Jay z don't do commercial gimmicks like him

Snoop has promoted roscoe chicken and Adidas in his show

He's done verizon ads

Joined the nation of Islam

Became a Rasta

Said he quit smoking weed

Had Don the magic Juan who was a unknown pimp , pimp snoop to become a household name

He's a sell out

snoop thinks hes a G and hes played himself as an uncle tom a dillion times. game show, show with martha stewart, the rasta shit, and countless transformations in music that are cash grabs. other than doggystyle, blue carpet treatment and the dam funk album were the only good shit hes done and a few tracks off his 2 no limit albums.

LOL at calling Snoop a gimmick but supporting Fahim, the biggest gimmick since Action Bronson.

And ftr, Snoop isn't a gimmick. A gimmick has zero real talent and would suck some hiv duck for a dollar.

Snoop is the Madonna of hip hop. He reinvents himself over and over again. 25 years in the business, with a brand stronger than ever. He is the furthest thing from a gimmick.

Let's be honest...Observe was jocking 7 Days of Funk so fucking hard - and rightfully so. That album is FIRE.

He was jocking Snoop's album so hard, he took Dam Funk's beats and tried to make his own EP.

This is just another troll job that everyone fell for. Observe has been on Top Shelf troll mode lately. He kilt no mask with Drake >>>>>>>>> The Whole Freestyle Fellowship. no mask lost his shit.

"Snoop has one classic album, and the the rest trash minus a few"

7 Days of Funk is probably one of the few. Just because it isn't classic doesn't mean he thinks it's trash. Maybe he just thinks most of his other discography is trash

the irony of this thread is that karim's gimmick is his trolling, and he's trolling us with this thread. so this thread about snoop being a gimmick was created via karim's trolling gimmick.

and it's been proven itt that karim actually believes the opposite of what he's saying, and that he's a snoop fan (see: nws' comments on karim loving and even jocking the style of 7 days of funk for his own nightstone project). so what does that mean? karim's previously said in the past that he'd sell out super hard if he was famous, so is karim actually secretly revealing to us that he admires snoop's business/sell-out tactics? it's a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. or maybe he's just butthurt towards snoop, because he just realized that snoop did the dam-funk thing before he did, and that he unconsciously jacked snoop's swag. i don't know.

for the record, a gimmick is "a trick or device used to attract business or attention" in an overt way. in other words, it's a form of behaviour. a person cannot be a gimmick. snoop has had gimmicks in the past, such as his snoop lion phase, but he as a person, by definition, cannot be a gimmick. you dummies.

it's the second irony of this thread: we're misusing words in a hip hop forum; you'd think rap fans would be particularly fussy about words and how to properly use them.

Gimmick is not slang. It's a well established word in the english language. A rapper is not a gimmick. A rapper can use gimmicks. Gimmickry usually promotes sales, but in some cases it's too transparent and receives cultural backlash. A rapper using gimmicks is gimmicky. His music might be deemed gimmicky, too, or a gimmick in and of itself. For example, KRS-One is gimmicky. His gimmick is pseudo-religious cultism which he alludes to in his rap through his characterization of himself as a teacher. Because he demanded a cultural status early on in hip hop he's often overrated and gets a pass on pretty much anything.
That said, Snoop is the biggest gimmick in rap.
