Snoop Dogg Presents The Big Squeeze is full of other rappers droppin' verses.. His next album? Don't expect many guests. He's going at it alone.
"Me and Pharrell [Williams] went into the studio last night, and we're gonna start on this album called Ego Trippin'…I'mma do the whole record, me by myself. I don't want no guest rappers, no singer, nothing. Just Snoop Dogg. I want you to feel me. When I think of all the greats before me … I bought Rakim's album the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers. I bought one of KRS-One's albums the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers," he told MTV.
"You lose focus after awhile when you're doing an album…'Snoop, you got a new album coming out. Who's on it?' I'll be like, 'I got him on it, him on it, them on it.' When it's time to do the video, they'll do the video with me, but when it's time to do a show with them, 'Oh, I got a show in Germany,' or, 'I got to be in Paris.' You're left one-legged. Now it's time to show artists. Can you handle the whole weight? Do you got enough to do it on your own? Did you put yourself in a position where people love you for you — or for being associated with people? This record, I'm seriously ego-tripping like, 'I don't want you on my album. Nah, I don't need you.' "
He is also planning to record the soundtrack for A Woman's Touch.
"It's going to speak directly to some of these women who speak negatively of me and who don't understand me," he said. "It's going to be a movie and a record. This is something I was thinking about nine months to a year ago, but it just so happens all this hoopla is happening now. This is the perfect time to shoot it into delivery."
