Garrison Starr Covers Snoop Dogg’s “Gin And Juice”

White-bread covers of gritty urban rap songs are nothing new, but when done right (think Ben Folds’ reworking of Dr. Dre’s “Bitches Ain’t Shit”), they can be elevated into an art form.

Garrison Starr and PJ Pacifico’s poignant take on Snoop Dogg’s immortal “Gin And Juice” is beautifully done. Fo shizzle.

It’s featured on the album Doggystyle Restyled: A Tribute to Snoop Dogg, the latest installment in Engine Room Records’ Guilty By Association series, out December 17.

“I’m thrilled and honored to have been asked to participate in this tribute, and I’m really excited about the way the track came out,” Starr tells us. “I waited until the last minute to record it because I really wasn’t sure what the vibe should be. The only person I could think of who would be fun to work with on this was PJ Pacifico. In his presence, I found the vibe. I hope Snoop loves it and wants to be friends.”
