Need some good inspirational music to calm your spirit and get you up on a Sunday morning? Look no further. Snoop Dogg might be blessing us with a gospel album very soon.
The rapper is already out promoting his latest album release Neva Left. In an interview with Dr. Dre‘s “The Pharmacy” program on Beats 1, he threw a curve ball and mentioned that he’s been itching to make a gospel record. “It’s always been on my heart,” he said. “I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business or doing this or doing that. I just felt like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now.”
Snoop already has people in mind to work on the album, including Faith Evans, who recently brought on Snoop for her “When We Party” record.
“Me, Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily,” he said. “She feel like she wanna get down with me. All of the people that I know, from Charlie Wilson to Jeffrey Osborne, whoever I really want to get down with. I’m gonna make it all the way right. It’s gonna feel good.” You can watch his comments below.
Snoop is no stranger to heavenly music. He’s on record singing along to Kirk Franklin‘s “Silver and Gold.” You can check out his vocals below. Maybe a teaser of what’s to come? We’ll stay tuned.
