Tha Last Meal is the fifth studio album by American rapper Snoop Dogg. It was released on December 19, 2000. It was his third and final album released on No Limit Records and his first album on his newly founded label Doggystyle Records in the United States. The album was produced mostly by Master P and Dr. Dre along with Timbaland and Soopafly. The album included the singles "Snoop Dogg (What's My Name Pt. 2)" and "Wrong Idea" featuring Bad Azz. It sold 397,238 copies its first week and has sold over two million copies to date according to SoundScan.
The album was leaked on the internet on December 1, 2000 by Suge Knight who made all tracks downloadable in MP3 from the official site of his and Snoop Dogg's former company Death Row Records, which featured links to tracks from both Tha Last Meal and Dead Man Walkin' albums, asking visitors to "take The Snoop Dogg Challenge" and decide "song for song" which is the better album.
The single "Wrong Idea" was also included in Bad Azz's second album Personal Business released on Doggystyle. The video for the single was also attributed as a Bad Azz track that featured Snoop. Tha Last Meal was the final album from Snoop on No Limit Records.
Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "[His] strongest album since 1993's Doggystyle...Snoop's chronic-marinated flow, all menthol-cool and deadpan droop, sounds as smooth as ever."
Spin - 6 out of 10 - "This Meal finds him riding the Dre cache, trying to convince us he's still 'G'ed-up from the feet up'.... Timbaland stuttering out the obvious singles...but Dre's laconic thumps-by-the-pound anchor most of the album."
Vibe - 3.5 discs out of 5 - "Deeply steeped in P-funkology....these days, Snoop's songs are simply fun to listen to....nothing groundbreaking, just good solid Snoop-rap."
