Despite approaching the 30th anniversary of his debut verse on wax, Snoop Dogg has still shown no signs of slowing down, as the decorated rap legend has announced two new albums slated for release later this year.
The Doggfather revealed his plans for the future in a recent guest spot on Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon, which will begin with the release of his 19th studio album, Algorithms, following its release in April 2021, From Tha Streets to That Suites. While Snoop was sparse on the details surrounding the details of Algorithms, he shares that the album is slated for release in November, with a slew of appearances from some of the game’s biggest artists, as well as new talent on the rise.
Snoop also announced that one of his first major projects in his role as Def Jam Recordings’ new creative and strategic executive consultant will be the creation of a Def Jam children’s album, which is also slated for release this year. The west coast icon also provided insight into his decision to partner with Def Jam and his desire to build on the label’s legendary legacy.
“I was a Def Jam Records fan when I was a kid,” Snoop explains. “And knowing the talent that they have there and the opportunity that was waiting for me, I wanted to go out there and give a lot of opportunities to the artists there to get information, wisdom and advice from my part and then also develop new acts and give opportunities. So Def Jam was the perfect place for me considering how much I love it and how much it means to hip-hop and how much it really needed to. someone like me to change the energy of the building.I’m there for one reason only: to bring the music back and make people feel like they’re supposed to.
In addition to his new musical endeavors, Snoop will also be the voice of Cousin Itt in the upcoming Addams Family 2 film, which hits theaters this Friday.
