MP3 : Doggystyle - Snoop Dogg

VINYL : DOGGYSTYLE (EXPLICIT VERSION)


The cover was drawn by Snoop’s cousin Darryl Daniel, also known as Joe Cool. It is styled like a comic book, but has hints of graffiti and airbrush art. Based on an idea by Dr. Dre, Snoop told Joe the basics of what they wanted for the artwork: 

"Well Dr. Dre really wants a picture of me on top of a doghouse, reaching over, feeling on a dog’s ass or something. But I want you to draw it, though. We’ll run it by Dre."

The cover booklet unfolded into a mini comic, detailing a day of sex, drugs, alcohol and other shenanigans of Snoop and the rest of his crew.

George Clinton’s song “Atomic Dog” is the foundation for the artwork.

  1. In Clinton’s song, men are “dogs” who chase after - or lust for - cats (women). On Doggystyle, Snoop is a dog chasing a cat.
  2. The dogs on the top of the brick wall say in speech bubbles “Why must I feel like that… Why must I chase the cat.. Nuttin but the dog in me.” The bubble quotes are all lyrics from “Atomic Dog.”
  3. The song lyrics also say “Do the dogcatcher. Dogcatcher,” referring to a dance. On Doggystyle, a dogcatcher hides behind the wall.
  4. George Clinton appears on the album, and his influence is felt on several songs, particularly the lead single “What’s My Name.”


The image of a dog named Snoop looking down from the top of a doghouse is a reference to Snoopy, Charles Schulz’ iconic cartoon character from Peanuts.
