The first album spawned by Snoop Dogg’s Doggy Style Records partnership venture with MCA is about to hit. Welcome to Tha House Volume 1, featuring Bigg Snoop Dogg, Soopafly, LaToiya Williams, Mr. Kane and E-White (collectively known as the Doggy Style All-stars), will be released on July 30, according to a source close to the project.

The first official single will be Williams’ R&B tune “Fallen Star.” That video is set to start filming May 1 in Los Angeles. “Locs at Night,” by Mr. Kane, and the camp posse cut

“Doh’Doh’,” produced by Hi-Tek, will also be released to mixtape and mix show DJs in the next few weeks. Around the same time the album drops, a documentary will be released – also titled “Welcome to Tha House” – on VHS and DVD.

On the solo tip, Snoop is working on his next LP, Bigg Snoop Dogg Has Paid Tha Cost to Be Tha Boss, which is set to drop in late September. Hi-Tek, Just Blaze, Fredwreck, Battle Cat, the Neptunes, DJ Scratch and new Dogg House in-house producer Quazedelic have all supplied beats.

As he’s doing with the label compilation, Snoop is also going to put out a film to accompany his album. He’s starring in “Boss’n Up” as a hustler from Long Beach, California, named Corde, who moves to Miami. While in the M.I.A, Corde learns the ins and outs of pimping and builds a dynasty with the help of hordes of ladies of the evening.

Interestingly enough, Snoop’s fans will have a chance to own his real-life big pimpin’ mobile, the Snoop Deville. He’s going to be giving the vehicle away as part of a contest that promotes his album.

Snoop’s other acts, Tha Eastsidaz and Doggy’s Angels, whose albums are put out by TVT Records, are both in the lab working on LPs as well.
