Fresh off the success of 1992's The Chronic, the world was ready to know the name Snoop Doggy Dogg. The stage was set, having been the featured rapper on more than half the cuts on Dr. Dre's masterpiece, and the performance of this single, 'What's My Name', solidified Snoop's rise to fame. The cut rocketed up the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B/Hip Hop charts right into the Top 10 and when Doggystyle dropped in November of `93 it went right to #1 on the Top 200. In fact, on the strength of this cut, Doggystyle become the first debut album ever to enter the Billboard charts at #1. Traffic Entertainment, in partnership with Death Row Records, now brings you the reissue of the classic song that started it all. The single includes the Radio Edit, the LP Version, the 8 minute Explicit Club Mix and the Club Instrumental.
