Snoop Dogg Covers Johnny Cash

Posted By on July 14, 2008

    Snoop already has ventured into the country music genre with his "My Medicine" [watch here], now big Snoop Dogg is going to do even more. Billboard is reporting that Snoop recently worked his production team, including Teddy Riley and DJ Quik, to cover Johnny Cash's classic hit "I Walk The Line." The track will be featured on an upcoming album called Johnny Cash Remixed. "If you take your time to listen to it, country music is very similar to rap,” Snoop said of the genre. “Johnny Cash is the one who stood out to me. I love his style, his swag, the songs he made."

    The remixed album will also feature other hip-hop artists and will be produced by Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash. When talking about how his father would feel about the project, John Cash says he "would have loved this remix record. While it stays true to the original recordings, this CD touches on undiscovered ground. This is what my father was about: staying true to tradition while creating groundbreaking new music." The remixed album will be out October 14th.
