When this new Snoop Dogg track, “Eyez Closed,” leaked earlier this year, most of us assumed it was a Kanye West and John Legend tune that was left off My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. As it turns out, that was a rough version of the song that didn’t feature Snoop’s vocals. He’s on “Eyez Closed” now, though, and it’s actually going to end up on his forthcoming album, Doggumentary. Yet, even with his two verses, this still sounds like a track that was previously sitting on the MBDTF cutting room floor. It’s not necessarily bad, but this doesn’t sound like Snoop, even experimental Snoop, at all.
