Tha Dogg Pound- New York, New York

Artist: Tha Dogg Pound/Snoop Dogg
Title: New York, New York
Album: Dogg Food
Record Label: Death Row Records
Catalog Number: 63007
Year Released: 1996

In 1996, Death Row and Tha Dogg Pound released a music video for their single “New York, New York” in which they are seen knocking over New York skyscrapers and landmarks, a gesture to which many East Coast artists and music fans took offense. Lyrics such as “New York New York big city of dreams And everything in New York ain't always what it seems” were examples of the blows that Tha Dogg Pound had for New York hip hop artists. After listening to this song you will be able to pinpoint the west coast’s style which entails the laid back flow with smoother beats and more lyrical emphasis on rhythm.
