Muze PNote MURDER WAS THE CASE began as a Snoop Doggy Dog video, and was gradually extended into a feature-length video and soundtrack. Pound for pound (dogg pound, that is), this is a definitive anthology of beats and raps.
Muze PNote Even those cuts not directly produced and mixed under the auspices of Dr. Dre bear his stylistic signature. Most cuts reflect Dr. Dre's love for phat, mello grooves and a sweet, soulful keyboard pad; it's a kind of Compton meets Funkadelic thang, in which the rawest, most fervent raps vie for center stage with serpentine synthesizer counterpoint that shades the lead voice and goads on the speaker with melodic give and take (such as Snoop & Tha Dogg Pound's "Who Got Some Gangsta Shit?" with its dope bass vamp and flute-like synth accompaniment).
Muze PNote Dr. Dre and Ice Cube team up for the gangsta realism of "Natural Born Killaz," setting a hardcore wild west tone for MURDER WAS THE CASE (as summed up by Slip Capone on "The Eulogy"--"It's a cold world/Niggaz got to provide their own heat"), while Nate Dogg delivers a more poignant narrative of family and survival on "One More Day" ("If I live to see tomorrow/Thank you for one more day"). On the ballad and laid-back front, there's a decidedly carnal "Horny" by B-Rezell, a sassy "Woman To Woman" by Jewell, and the head hound hisself, Snoop Doggy Dogg (with Tray Deee) on "21 Jumpstreet."

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.178)
- "...[It] isn't the trailblazer that Dre's THE CHRONIC was last year. But it is rap very nearly as strong. Featuring West Coast stalwarts...and new discoveries..., Dre and Dat Nigga Daz present gangsta- and R&B-infected fare that slams..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/11/94, p.76)
- "...confirms...Dr. Dre as the new king of pop. In addition to the ominous remix of Snoop's title song, Dre reunites with Ice Cube...Dre's G-funk sound may be the hardest in the land, but it's also the most gut-wrenchingly soulful..." - Rating: A

Q (1/95, p.258)
- 3 Stars - Good - "...While most ears will be tuned to the bile'n'beats of `Natural Born Killaz'...the best track here is from Snoop's young protege, Nate Dogg....One of West Coast rap's more imaginative albums."

The Source (1/95, p.85)
- 4 Stars - Slammin' - "...while Jodeci duets with Tha Dogg Pound and an all-star cast to try their hand at the G-Funk sound, Dre begins plotting his next move...heavy-metal bass meets chunky keyboards..."

NME (Magazine)
(12/24/94, p.23)
- Ranked #8 in NME's list of the 10 best compilation albums of 1994.

NME (Magazine)
(10/15/94, p.53)
- 7 - Very Good - "...anyone expecting this to signal Dre's decline is kidding themselves. MURDER WAS THE CASE shows the old dogg has plenty of new tricks..."
