On "Who Am I (What's My Name)?," Snoop declared who the bleep he is after scoring three hits with Dr. Dre—"Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang," "Fuck wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')" and "Let Me Ride." After this, everyone knew about his "doggystyle." 

The smash topped Billboard's Hot Rap Songs, while peaking at #8 on the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. "What's My Name" is also ranked at #456 on NME's "The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time" list. 

Below are some significant lyrics, per Genius.

🎶 It's like that and as a matter of fact (rat-tat-tat-tat). Cuz I never hesitate to put a nigga on his back. Yeah, so peep out the manuscript. You see that it's a must we drop gangsta shit. What's my motherfuckin name?🎶

Check out the music video below. 

On "Gin and Juice," Snoop details the more laid back side of gangsta life, giving the streets something to groove to in 1994. The smash topped Billboard's Hot Rap Songs, while peaking at #8 on the Hot 100 and #13 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

To no one's surprise, the smash was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 1995 Grammys. The song remains a throwback banger everyone can jam to today. In fact, VH1 has ranked "Gin and Juice" at #8 on its "100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs" list.

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius

🎶 With so much drama in the L-B-C. It's kind of hard bein' Snoop D-O-double-G. But I, somehow, some way. Keep comin' up with funky-ass shit, like, every single day. May I kick a little something for the G's. And make a few ends as I breeze through? Two in the mornin' and the party's still jumpin' ‘Cause my momma ain't home.🎶
