Paid Tha Cost To Be Da Bo$$

LP (Item 64836) Priority, 2002 — Condition: Near Mint-
3LP Gatefold

Snoop's back, with guest spots and production by the Neptunes, Premier, Jay Z, Redman, Nate Dogg and others, and it's a real guilty pleasure. Snoop is Snoop, there's nothing fresh at all here, but whether you like the pooch or not, this without a doubt his tightest batch since Doggystyle. It's too damn long – stretched over 3 LPs, there's some definate quality hemorrhaging here and there – but the top tier producers bring their best games, and Snoop sounds like he cares for a change. He even looks alive these days – that house party live version of "From The Chuuuch To Da Palace" Snoop does with a funk band on Doggy Fizzle Televizzle (the equally great LP version you'll find here is produced by the Neptunes) really is fresh, and it burns, too. Other tracks include "Don Doggy", "Stoplight", "Da Bo$$ Would Like To See You", ""I Believe In You", "Lollipop", ""Beautiful", "Paper'd Up", "Bo$$ Playa", "I Miss That Bitch", ""From Long Beach 2 Brick City", and "Batman & Robin." 20 tracks on 3 LPs; a near masterpiece and we didn't even see it coming.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout hole, a lightly stained and wavy corner, and a bit of peeling on front.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
