Album Description
Available in:
Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss is the sixth studio album from rapper Snoop Dogg, released in 2002. The album has been certified Platinum by the RIAA and has sold over 1,300,000 copies worldwide.

There were two singles releases that were followed by videos for TV promotion. Although both "From tha Chuuuch to da Palace" and "Beautiful" feature Pharrell, he was only featured in the latter video shoot that took place in Brazil. They were directed by Bucky Chrome and Chris Robinson respectively, and also there are two street videos embedded in Snoop Dogg's Boss Playa - a day in the life of Bigg Snoop Dogg DVD, namely "Boss Playa" and "Pimp Slapp'd", both directed by Pook Brown, and there's also a third one made for the "That's the Shit", and a fourth one that can be seen in the Doggystyle porn DVD ("You Like Doin It Too") however these tracks are from the later unreleased project version of the album.

Thanks to the Brazilian eye-catching carnival-like scenes of the "Beautiful" video, the song became an instant hit and charted in almost every major country all around the world, helping the album to achieve Gold in 6 weeks and Platinum within four months. It reached the 60th spot on the LAUNCH Music Videos Top 100. The album has six announced pre-released versions with different CD covers and several tracks not included in the final list.
