Snoop Dogg fans are well aware that the rapper loves to get high, but for an upcoming project, he’ll only be using his faith to do so. The “Doggystyle” rapper recently announced that he’s working on a gospel album. During an interview with Beats 1 radio, the co-host of Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party said the project is something he’s wanted to do for a while:
“I’m working on a gospel album.”
“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.”
The 45-year-old “D-O-Double G” even expressed that he has a few artists in mind that he’d like to collaborate with on the project:
“Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily.”
“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.”
XXLMag reports this might not be such a foreign idea for the entertainer reporting that he once played gospel music on his tour bus in a video posted to Instagram. Snoop also participated in the Shirley Caesar “U Name It Challenge” that trended last December.
Snoop is no stranger to trying new things once reinventing himself as “Snoop Lion” for his Reincarnated album, and for the most part his innovation has paid off. You can watch Snoop talk about his new project below:
