Snoop Dogg has announced the title for his newest album, which is a co-production between Snoop’s Doggy Style imprint and The Neptunes’ Star Trak label.
R&G: (Rhythm & Gangsta) The Masterpiece is slated to be released in time for the Thanksgiving holiday and will be distributed by Geffen Records.
In a recent interview, Snoop said the new album would reflect a different, more mature sound.
“I think I’m more melodic, more instrumental, more musical,” Snoop told AllHipHop.com. “[I’m] going back to my background from the church.”
The album is Snoop’s follow up to the platinum selling album Paid Tha Cost To Be Da Bo$$, which produced the #1 single “Beautiful,” also a collaboration between Snoop and The Neptunes.
Snoop is serving as executive producer of the project, which will feature producers he was worked with throughout his career, as well as a collaboration with The Gap Band’s founder, Charlie Wilson.
