Beautiful ♦ Snoop Dog

Well intentioned claims that inserting a eunuch like Pharrell Williams to bleat his falsetto as a coda for what turned out to be the best Snoop single of the decade resulted in a love song devoid of the misogyny so common in gansta rap in general and the snoop dog cannon specifically could not be further off the mark.

This is a man, after all, who walked the red carpet at the 2003 MTV Awards with two women on leashes and fed the rumor that they were not only prostitutes, but his prostitutes.

Is it gansta black male machismo that, according to mythipedia, would have you believe that Snoop Dogg met his wife Shante while hitch hiking along Santa Monica Blvd. He said he had intended to rob and murder whoever picked him up but he said that he fell in love with Shante as soon as she stopped to pick him up. He then decided to only rob and rape her.

Or is it meta- gansta black male machismo?

Cuz, Snoop is a married man with a wife and three kids at home – and pimping? Pimping, media savvy college kids will tell ya, is just a part of the Snoop persona. Snoop isn’t even his real name ya undershizzle?

So what kind of world exactly do we support by including Beautiful as #10 in our top ten list of songs from the decade? I don’t really know, I left my Political Correctness decoder ring on the dance floor and Snoop’s flow is so single malt that if we are setting the women’s movement back at all, we are being so very very kind about it all.
