Snoop Dogg's next album - a gospel record

22/05/2017

Snoop Dogg may only have just dropped his 15th studio album, but he's already planning his next move and it may surprise his loyal fans. 

The Californian rap legend newest album Neva Left dropped on May 19, but has revealed for his next one he'll be heading to church, with a gospel record in the works.

The 'Doggfather' sat down for an interview with local radio station where he told listeners the gospel project had "always been on my heart". 

"I just never got around to it because I always be doing 'gangsta' business and doing this and doing that. But I just feel like it's been on my heart too long. I need to do it now."

While there was no release date or name in the works, Snoop already has some people in mind to be featured on the album.

"Me, Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily, because she feels like she wants to get down with me," he revealed. 

"All the people I know from Charlie Wilson to Jeffery Osborne, whoever I want to get down with. We [gonna] make it right."

It isn't the first time Snoop has strayed from his rap roots, releasing a reggae-inspired album Reincarnated in 2013 and changing his stage name to Snoop Lion.
