"Gangsta Luv" is the lead single from Snoop Dogg's tenth studio album, Malice n Wonderland. It was produced by Tricky Stewart and co-produced by The-Dream, who is also featured in the song. It was released digitally on October 6, 2009 as the first official single of Malice n Wonderland after the promo single "Snoop Dogg Millionaire".
The music video (directed by Paul Hunter) premiered on October 21, 2009. DJ Felli Fel makes a cameo appearance in the video. The video was introduced on 106 & Park on October 30, 2009 during a special Halloween episode. The music video shows The-Dream driving a blue Cadillac Low-Rider, and Snoop Dogg sitting in the back. Throughout the video, the appearance of Snoop Dogg, The-Dream and the girls around them change as the car travels through different places. The way the car appears to drive through various locations (including impossible indoor locations such as a women's locker room) is very similar to the opening-credits sequences of the Naked Gun films.
The video ranked at #66 on BET's Notarized: Top 100 Videos of 2009 countdown.
