Snoop had this to say of the project:
âWe were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects. Itâs so much a part of who I am, and this record is all about paying homage and giving respect to those who created and love reggae music, and hopefully introducing it to a whole new audience. I feel truly honored to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me."
The album's release is a collaborative effort between Vice Music, Mad Decent, RCA and Berhane Sound System. Mad Decent label head Diplo is serving as executive producer.
