Snoop Dogg is a pretty respected figure in the Hip-Hop community; some even consider him a "household name". He debuted in 1992 with an album called Doggystyle (back when he was Snoop Doggy Dogg), which some fans consider to be his best work. Not many people know that he released one album before Doggystyle. The cassette-only album, known as Over the Counter, appeared at swapmeets in 1991. It featured 16 tracks on it with one bonus track. Only 6 of the tracks off of this album have resurfaced on the Internet, and the other 11 are unlikely to resurface due to the tape's extreme rarity.

As far as I know, this is fake. If you are familiar with Dr. Dre's work during that time period, it's inconsistent (I say it's his work, considering he most likely produced this). 1.) The low quality doesn't make any sense for someone who had a decent amount of money at the time (though I could be wrong about this one), 2.) The production style is way different for a Dre production, knowing that "Efil4zaggin" was released a year prior, and 3.) The fuzz and lo-fi quality switches from video to video (though that could be just YouTube, but I mean how much hissing there is in the microphone, not how clear it is).

Efil4zaggin was released the same year that this "tape" supposedly came out. I agree with you. This is certainly fake.

The "Over The Counter" leaked tape is a blatant fake for several reasons. To point out a few the cassette tape artwork that leaked just tried to replicate (maybe even actually use) Joe Cool's style, which was Snoop's album artwork maker at Death Row Records, and a few songs from that tape were also jacked from Foesum's "The Lost Tapes" compilation. No physical photo proof of that cassette tape release has ever been given.
