This past Saturday (November 23) Snoop Dogg’s debut album, Doggystyle turned 20-years old. There were over a baker’s dozen reasons on why it was one of the most influential and riveting entries into Hip-Hop music.

One of the key figures of its creative process actually didn’t deal in any of the musicianship, however. Marion “Suge” Knight served as the album’s executive producer and his duties extended well past what MTV and BET allowed us to see in 1993. To build off Snoop Dogg’s buzz and anticipation for the LP, there had to be plenty of amenities to even get the album off the ground.

In a candid talk with Rolling Stone, the former CEO of Death Row Records spoke openly on his thoughts of Doggystyle and the events leading up to its release. He recounted the time he had nearly 1,000 trucks loaded with memorabilia to roll out during the street campaign fpr example.

The embattled music mogul has been within the law’s grasp several times in 2013 but he never puts his integrity on the line to sugarcoat a situation. For that we are thankful and what was probably started out as a routine interview turned into a revelation of “facts” according to Suge Knight.
