Since The Chronic, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have established themselves as hip-hop’s most trusted hitmakers. From The Chronic and Doggystyle to their Emmy-award-winning performance at the Super Bowl in 2023, the chemistry they’ve built for three decades hasn’t diminished within that time. Unfortunately, we haven’t received a ton of music from them recently, safe for “ETA” from Dre’s Grand Theft Auto: The Contract releases. So, when Snoop said that he and Dr. Dre locked into the studio for a new project, fans were understandably excited.

Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre confirmed they were cooking up a new album last year. However, they haven’t delivered much of an update since Snoop announced the album in October. “Me and Dr. Dre have been working on an album for the past two months, and it’ll be done in November,” Snoop told Stephen A. Smith on the Know Mercy podcast. “And it’s produced by Dr. Dre. It’s our 30th anniversary to Doggystyle. And the name of the album is Missionary.”

Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre Are Taking Over The Summer 

Snoop confirmed that his upcoming Dr. Dre-produced album, Missionary would be coming later this year. The Long Beach native hit Instagram with a photo of himself and Dre, describing themselves as the “dynamic duo.” “Music comin summer 23,” he captioned the post. Though they haven't set a release date yet, the two delivered countless summer anthems over the years. Songs like “Gin N Juice” and “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang” continue to ring out nearly three decades after their release, so there’s little doubt they won’t deliver this time around.

Snoop Dogg apparently has a big summer ahead of him. Along with the release of Missionary with Dr. Dre, he and Wiz Khalifa could have a sequel to Mac & Devin Go To High School in the works. The two rappers confirmed the news on Instagram earlier this week, revealing that the title would be High School Reunion. Similar to Missionary, Snoop and Wiz didn't publicly announce a release date. However, we can imagine Snoop Dogg will be incredibly busy in the coming months. We’ll keep you posted on any more updates and read our history of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's relationship here.
