“Protocol” (Video)


    The push behind Snoop Dogg’s upcoming Malice N Wonderland, which drops Dec. 8, remains steady. We have heard a series of leaks over the past week or two and now he’s back with an official video. “Protocol,” which features clips from the film of the same name, is “some real motherfucking gangsta shit,” according to Snoop. And…that’s exactly what you see in the video. You have shots of Snoop with his crew, performing in front of a bunch of ladies, smoking plenty of weed, and mean-mugging the camera. It’s not a terrible video or song, but they both feel lost in today’s climate. Or, more accurately, they’re too stuck in the early ’90s. You can’t blame Snoop for making a throwback like this to the gangsta era he was part of. But that doesn’t mean the end result has to be so unmoving. [2DopeBoyz]
