"WELCOME TO THA HOUSE
THE DOGGUMENTARY DVD
I really didn't think this would be too good of a DVD but I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that this DVD was very informative. I don't know why I doubted it, it was just one of those things where I would see it in the store and was like "nah I'll get it eventually'. Well that "eventually" finally came and I'm glad that I finally got it. The film is pretty well put together and entertaining and easy to follow.
It starts out with a little intro from Snoop Dogg with an appearance from Mac Minista. Then we go into the first of four chapters entitled "SOOPAFLY spittin' real game", in which I found really entertaining and informative but it just made me more up set that years have went by and still no album from him on Dogghouse Records. But it did give insight into how he hooked up with Snoop and them. Right after that we have a home made music video for the track "LIGHT THAT S**T UP" with Snoop, Soopafly, RBX, and Kokane. The video its self is ok but the others seem t out do it as they have more cuts and locations they were filmed at. Right after that we move into Latoiya Williams's chapter "straight from the soul", this like the previous chapter is very entertaining and informative. In fact it might be my favorite chapter because of the song that shows off Latoiya singing live to answer that question [you'll see what I'm talking about if u watch it]. But this chapter talks about her singing background and how she got up with Soopafly who is her writer and producer. Following that we have another video but this one is Snoop by himself on a Jazzy Phae production called "BIG SNOOP DOGG", the song itself is good and the beat is real smooth. The video is better then the first one since there is more cuts and angles and not just shots of people next to a mic. Then we have E-White's chapter "riding through the LBC" which like the others is informative and entertaining, plus it's cool to see him going through Long Beach telling his story. We follow that up with a video from E White and RBX called "DOIN' IT BIG", this one is pretty good kinda on the level of the first one.
Next is Kokane's chapter "Pomona neo-funk", this one is good but not as informative as the previous ones. But it is good so check it out and enjoy the funky sounds of Mr. Kane. This is followed by a video for "DOGGHOUSE AMERICA" which is the best of the home shot music videos in which all performers have multiple cuts not just a few people.
The DVD ends with a behind the scenes look at the making of Latoiya Williams "FALLIN' STAR" music video, and a commercial for the label and its releases. And as a bonus feature we have the actual video for the above mentioned song we got a making of look at. It is a great video and a nice throwback to the old school joints. In all this DVD is a good selection for any fan of these artists or any music fan in general.
