Snoop Dogg has been relevant for the last four decades. That sort of longevity is amazing, especially in hip-hop. One of my favorite SOTB artists in Matt Nye collaborated with Snoop on “Playa Escalator,” a smooth West Coast vibe of a song. Lyrically, Nye and Snoop spit that chill fire both artists have come to be known for. Overall, the track is one that encapsulates the vibes of late summer. Things are winding down, but there’s still a bit of party to get out before the seasons change.
Nye’s lyrics are the highlight in a song that has a lot of highlights. That’s saying a lot, since it’s a collab with Snoop that sounds like a mix between legendary West Coast rap sounds and boombap. If you’re curious, the track is below. Check it out and support dope music in all its forms. You never know who’ll pop up on SOTB.
