Snoop Dogg rarely goes more than a few months without releasing new music. In Wednesday's early hours he quietly posted a collaboration with Mike Will Made-It called "Late Nights." The record contains low-key drums, silky electric piano fills, and hazy guitar, the ideal soundtrack for a nocturnal smoke sesh. Mike Will the producer MVP of 2016 so far.
J Dilla Feat. Snoop Dogg & Kokane
Unfortunately, there was no Views from the 6 edition of OVO Sound Radio tonight, as some had suspected. However, another episode of Dre's exclusive-packed show "The Pharmacy" went live on Beats 1 radio, and the Doc didn't disappoint, as he premiered a new track off J Dilla's upcoming posthumous album The Diary. It's fitting that Dre got the exclusive drop on Dilla's "Gangsta Boogie," as the track features two West Coast vets in Snoop Dogg and Kokane.
Ahh Shit Gah Damn!
Kool John Feat. Snoop Dogg & Iamsu!
"Ahh Shit Gah Damn!" That's really all there is to say upon hearing the cross-regional flavor on this one, the latest single from Bay Area elite Kool John. On the new record, he's joined by his fellow HBK Gang-member Iamsu! as well as another legend hailing from several hours to the south, LBC's Snoop Dogg, who's always showed Bay love throughout his storied career.
Fuck Wit Dre Day [Throwback]
Dr. Dre Feat. Snoop Dogg
Today really is Dre Day, so it seems entirely too appropriate to choose Dre. Day's "Fuck Wit Dre Day" (or simply "Dre Day" in its censored form) as our Throwback song of choice. Although the record has nothing at all to do with the doctor's birthday, it was actually a diss record towards former friend/NWA member Eazy-E, with some shots thrown in towards 2 Live Crew's Luke and Ice Cube for good measure.
Smoke DZA Feat. Snoop Dogg
Smoke DZA and Snoop Dogg was bound to happen. There’s just too much weed smoking synergy. Smoke is gearing up to release his 4th studio album He Has Risen on March 4, and this is the first single from the project.
Colonel Loud Feat. Too Short, Snoop Dogg & Ricco Barrino
The popular hit “California” by Colonel Loud didn’t actually feature anyone from California (T.I. and Young Dolph were on the other version). The North Carolina emcee has rectified the situation by recruiting two of the most storied spitters from the sunny state of CA.
N My Life Tyme
Snoop Dogg & Daz Dillinger
Many vets have been trying to stay relevant by working with young producers or adding a little bit of trap to their sound, but for their upcoming album, Cuzznz, Snoop and Daz have simply been exploring the possibilities within the G-funk sound, and the results couldn't be more pleasing.
I'm From Long Beach
When he's not busy ranting on Instagram about his NFL team's massive loss, Snoop's putting in work. The rapper has come through with a dope new single today, repping the city that birthed him, Long Beach. This follows up an entire mixtape dedicated to his native city, Beach City, which dropped the other month.
Daz Dillinger & Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger are coming together for a joint album, Cuzznz. Joint projects are particularly en vogue right now, but there's no questioning the chemistry between these two West Coast OGs. Here's the second new track, "Best Friend," off the upcoming album, following the Dam-Funk-produced "Sho You Right," released at the end of October.
Christina Milian Feat. Snoop Dogg
Christina Milian is all set to drop her EP 4U, her first project since she released So Amazin' in 2006. Remarkably, she is still just 34 years old and still cranking out hits. Two months ago, back when she was still dating Lil Wayne, she released "Do It" feat. Tunechi, and this afternoon she shared "Like Me" feat. Snoop Dogg.
TrapFlix (Snoop Dogg & Dame Dash Diss)
Few could have predicted that Atlanta rapper would ever make a diss track about Snoop Dogg, but here we are. Here's the (alleged) story...
Crip or Die
Snoop Dogg's career has seen many twists and turns, with the rapper adopting a variety of different styles, especially more recently. We've seen him do full length projects that explored both reggae and funk, and his new project Beach City finds him effortlessly blending his many influences.
Snoop Dogg has just dropped off a new project intended to bring some shine to the city he's repped all his life: Long Beach, California. Compton has received its fair share of musical tributes this year, and now it's Long Beach's turn, as Snoop, DJ Drama, and several of the area's promising stars have teamed up to release a new mixtape, Beach City.
Powder On My Clothes
Snoop Dogg Feat. Busta Rhymes & Stresmatic
Rick Rock has been holding it down for the Bay for over a decade, having produced the majority of The Federation's notorious hyphy bangers from the mid-aughts. Recently he provided the production for "Dope Man," Redman's hilarious new single, and this morning he reunited with his old Federation teammate Stresmatic as well as Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes for "Powder On My Clothes," a raucous drug/party track that reeks of the West Coast.
Sho You Right
Snoop Dogg & Daz Dillinger
Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger have a new album out called Cuzznz that seems to be only available via physical CD, according to Daz's Instagram. He did make one track available on the interwebs: "Sho You Right," produced by frequent Snoop collaborator Dam-Funk (see their excellent 2013 project 7 Days of Funk).
No Social Media
Wiz Khalifa Feat. Snoop Dogg
Meek Mill just shared some thoughts about the negative aspects of social media, and now he may have a new anthem with the latest track from Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg. While both rappers have a pretty constant presence on Instagram (and in Wiz's case, Twitter), they're stressing the importance of escaping the world of likes and favorites once in a while.
Room Full Of G's
League Of Starz Feat. Snoop Dogg, The Game, Joey Fatts & Dee
This afternoon, in an hour actually, we'll be premiering a new mixtape from producers League of Starz. The production crew is following up the fan-favorite LOS.FM with LOS.FM 2. Similar to the first project, it's a compilation of various artists all rapping/singing over League of Starz's production-- you're guaranteed to get some heat.
Gucci Mane Feat. Snoop Dogg
Gucci Mane's Trapology is out later this week, but plenty of new material has been rolling in in advance. While it's sometimes hard to keep up with each and every new Gucci release, "Parking Lot" is something special, as it pairs Guwop with Snoop Dogg, and surprisingly, the two are both very aware that they're on the record together, both dropping names to ensure this wasn't a weird post-prison Frankenstein record.
Lil Jon Feat. T-Pain, Problem & Snoop Dogg
Lil Jon returned in a huge way last summer when he supplied the vocals to one of the year's biggest hits (and mantras), "Turn Down For What". Looks like the crunk king might be ready to shit down yet another summer, unleashing his new crew track, "Cutie Pie" today, in which he seamlessly melds pop-rap heroes from different eras into a slippery funk ballad.
Drop It Like It's Hot
Snoop Dogg Feat. Pharell
Snoop Dogg's new studio album, BUSH, dropped this week, and its the first time Snoop has teamed up with Pharrell Williams for an entire project. The creative partnership between the two artists has been proven over many successful singles, including "Beautiful," "From Tha Chuuuch To Da Palace," and "Let's Get Blown," and while everyone has a different favorite, few would argue with "Drop It Like It's Hot" being the quintessential record from the two masterminds.
