|Snoop Doggy Dogg singles chronology|
"Doggy Dogg World" is the third and final single from Snoop Doggy Dogg's debut album Doggystyle. It is the first European-only release with an American video TV-play. It features 1970s era classic soul & R&B group The Dramatics, with guest rap verses from Kurupt and Daz Dillinger (Tha Dogg Pound), and chorus singing by background vocalist Nancy Fletcher. It samples Richard "Dimples" Fields' "If It Ain't One Thing, It's Another" from his 1982 album Mr. Look So Good. The song's title is a reference to a common eggcorn of the phrase "Dog-Eat-Dog World."
The music video pays homage to the 1970s Disco Funk era as well as taking place during that time period with several Blaxploitation film stars reprising their iconic film roles as guest appearances. The video also takes place at the now defunct Carolina West Nightclub in Los Angeles, CA.
