(GEM RADIO)- Thirty years after the triumph of 1993’s Doggystyle, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have reunited for the upcoming album they call Missionary. The Doggfather said the project, which he teased earlier this year, ought to be finished by the end of next month.
During his recent appearance on Stephen A. Smith’s know mercy podcast, Snoop announced “You’re the first one to hear this,” “Me and Dr. Dre have been working on an album for the past two months, and it’ll be done in November.”
The Missionary Album
He continued, “And it’s produced by Dr. Dre. It’s our 30th anniversary of ‘Doggystyle.’ And the name of the album is ‘Missionary’.” When asked to explain the title, Snoop quipped, “The first album was ‘Doggystyle’.”
Some of The Big Names in the album
Back in August, Snoop Dogg first admitted he and Dre were “cooking up a little something.” Since then, Eminem has been recording with the famous trio, and he shared a photo of the group online. He captioned the photo, writing, “Just a few bros.. hangin out.” Later that month, Diddy posted a studio selfie with his “star,” Dr. Dre, on Instagram. Snoop Dogg was also present, the mogul’s crew said, and the talented trio was working on Missionary.
Death Row Records
Snoop Dogg also discussed his latest acquisition of Death Row Records elsewhere in the conversation.
“I was looking to get my masters back from ‘Doggystyle’,” Snoop explained. “During the process, they were – the people that had it – were charging more for the masters than for Death Row. So I had to ask myself, ‘Do I want the masters now, or do I want to go back and get that legacy?’”
He added, “Death Row Records should be the most prolific, dominant, business-minded companies to come out of the West Coast, that comes and stays with you for a lifetime.”
