With his new release, Neva Left , not even a full 24- hours old, Snoop Dogg is already speaking about his next project.
Much to the surprise of many , the veteran West Coast has announced that he is
officially working on a gospel album
, a totally different direction than his music has taken in the past .
Throughout Uncle Snoop’s storied career , he has always been one to mix it up and experiment, such as during his reggae – inspired venture, creating music under the moniker Snoop Lion .
During a recent conversation on Beats 1 , Snoop revealed that he has been waiting to create such a project for years now .
“I ’m working on a gospel album,” the Doggfather shared. “It’ s always been on my heart . I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business or doing this or doing that . I just felt like it’ s been on my heart too long . I need to do it now .”
Additionally , Snoop already has some collaborators in mind , including none other than Faith Evans , whom he recently worked with on the track, “ When We Party .”
“Me , Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily ,” he added. “ She feel like she wanna get down with me. All of the people that I know, from Charlie Wilson to Jeffrey Osborne, whoever I want to get down with . I’ m gonna make it all the way right. It ’s gonna feel good .”
