Snoop Dogg Releases Album "Tha Doggfather"

Tha Doggfather is Snoop Doggy Dogg's follow up to his debut album Doggystyle, released by Death Row Records in 1996.

The album was re-released July 11, 2005.

Although the album debuted at number one in the week of November 12, 1996 with over 478,971 copies sold, it failed to match the commercial success of Doggystyle due to the lack of involvement of Dr.Dre. Still worth to note that it was released only one week after another Death Row release, the first posthumous album by slain Tupac Shakur, the The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, which also debuted at number one.
