On Monday, Long Beach MC and the only rapper/person TO DATE, to ever smoke in The White House, Snoop Dogg, announced the release date and album cover for his upcoming LP ‘Neva Left’. In support of the promotion on Monday, Snoop dropped the first single “Mount Kushmore” featuring some of the biggest OG stoners in Hip-Hop. Method Man, Redman and B-Real all appear for the stacked feature track.
Beginning with a gunshot, the beat drops and has an immediate G-Funk/1990s vibe. Redman gives the first verse over the West-Coast flavoured instrumental. Second verse is handled by B-Real, and in typical “Dr. Greenthumb” fashion, Real’s nasally high-pitched vocals contradict the beat well as he flows slow and smoothly over it. Method Man takes the third verse of the track. The Wu-Tang MC supplies his regular raspy and jumpy flow and brags about his smoking capabilities and how him and the other three on the track are 4 of the reasons weed has inspired a cult of weed enthusiasts. Lastly, Snoop provides his verse. Sounding like himself in his 1990s day, his flow is thick and hazy. He speaks up about the amount (unsurprisingly) of his smoking and how he is an OG in the Rap Game yet still a force to recognise for their cultural and musical impact on Hip-Hop, G-Funk and R&B.
