Doggystyle is the debut studio album by American rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg, released in 1993 on Death Row Records. The album was recorded shortly after the release of Dr. Dre's landmark 1992 debut album The Chronic, to which Snoop Dogg contributed significantly. The style that Snoop Dogg had utilised on Dr. Dre's album was continued on Doggystyle, and he was praised for his lyrical realism and distinctive vocal flow.

Despite some initial mixed criticism of the album upon its release, Doggystyle has earned recognition from many music critics as one of the most significant albums of the 1990s, as well as one of the most important hip hop albums ever released. Much like The Chronic, the distinctive sounds of Doggystyle helped introduce the hip hop subgenre G-funk to a mainstream audience, bring forward West Coast hip hop as a dominant force in the early 1990s.

Doggystyle debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and sold 802,858 copies in its first week alone, which was the record for a debuting artist and the fasting-selling album ever until Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP in 2000. Doggystyle is included in The Source's 100 Best Albums list, and serves as Snoop Dogg's highest-selling album.
