Hidden Gem: Garrison Starr feat. PJ Pacifico “Gin And Juice”

Ah yes, Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice, one of hip hop’s finest anthems. Sing it you know it:

“Rollin down the street, smokin endo, sippin on gin and juice / Laid back with my mind on my money and my money on my mind.” Yes Guy!

As iconic as a Beastie Boys New York City reference. Which makes this cover all that more special. It’s bold, unique and genuinely sweet with all kinds of heart. It’s a legitimate celebration of how absurd rap can be and yet it’s a party and everybody’s invited. Rap knows how to have a good time, rock sometimes gets serious. We’re young, good looking with tons of disposable income, yo!

This Gin and Juice cover is just one track on Engine Room Recordings Doggystyle Restyled – A Tribute To A Snoop Dogg. It’s not a surprise to discover this outstanding project crystallized over drinks one night. It’s how the best ideas are typically formed.

So enjoy this, laid back…of course…
