Lately, Snoop Dogg has experimented with a Reggae album (Reincarnated) and one where he's mostly crooning (Bush). Now, it's time to go back to the S-N-double O-P we loved from the jump.
Just Blaze will be featured extensively on Snoop's next album and spoke to Billboard about it.
"For me personally, I love all the experimental things that he's done the past few years, like the Bush album [with Pharrell in 2015], the album with Wiz [2011's Mac & Devin Go to High School soundtrack], the Snoop Lion stuff [2013's Reincarnated], But my personal favorite albums from Snoop, besides Doggystyle, obviously, are albums like [2002's] Paid Da Cost to Be Da Boss, Rhythm & Gangsta [from 2004], where he kind of goes back to that Snoop personality that we all first fell in love with. And I was very excited to find out that that’s the direction he’s taking with this album. And just coincidentally, some of the stuff that I’ve been working on lately just kind of felt like an updated version of that old Death Row sound, kind of an updated G-Funk. I just started working on these tracks and they had a lot of those similar elements, just felt like newer versions of that feeling."Can Snoop Dogg recapture the magic of his younger days and deliver another album that ranks high in his already classic-filled discography?
