AllMusic Review by

WEST COAST BAD BOYZ 3: POPPIN' COLLARS is a timely collection from some of the West Coast's greatest and most notorious rappers, including Brotha Lynch Hung, Mack 10, and of course Snoop Dogg. It kicks off with the P-Funk stylings of "Pop Lockin' II," while the thinly disguised political commentary of E-40's "Sick" packs a punch.

"The Matrix" uses that groundbreaking movie's storyline as a backdrop to more contemporary gangsta events, while "Poppin Them Collars" is more graphic description of left coast thug life. Brotha Lynch Hung's brooding "Last Night" rounds off this tour de force gangsta summit meeting with a great, menacing, John Carpenter-like synth line that underscores BLH's reputation as one of the more imaginative West Coast gangsta rappers.
