Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told is the third studio album by American rapper Snoop Dogg, released in 1998 on No Limit Records. It is first album following his departure from Death Row Records, as well as his first album to be released under the name Snoop Dogg instead of Snoop Doggy Dogg. The album is a stark departure from the strictly West Coast sound of his previous work, and features a variety of Southern rappers and producers. The album is predominantly produced by members of The Medicine Men and other inhouse No Limit producers, although past collaborators DJ Pooh and Soopafly contribute one song each. 

The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling 520,000 copies in its first week. Its two singles, "Still a G Thang" and "Woof!", also performed well, reaching #14 and #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart respectively. However, the album received moderate to negative reviews from critics, who did not like the changing of Snoop Dogg's sound.
