Snoop Dog Planning ‘R&G’ Album

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

“[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.
