Snoop Dogg continues to surprise us with his various projects from rap to gospel and now he’s venturing into the children’s music genre.
The 48-year-old rapper has tapped into several different genres in the past including gospel, reggae, and funk, but he’s now adding another album to his long list of experimental projects, as he’s put together a record full of lullaby tracks aimed at infants.
According to The Source, the album is titled Lullaby Renditions of Snoop Dogg, and includes soothing instrumental versions of some of his biggest hits, such as “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Gin and Juice,” and “Sensual Seduction.”
The record is being released in partnership with Rockabye Baby! Music, which is known for making lullaby instrumentals of various artists, including Drake, Eminem, and Kanye West.
The album is slated to be released on December 6, but a vinyl version was released last week in order to coincide with November’s Record Store Day, which also fell on Black Friday, Nov. 29, 2019.
Meanwhile, Snoop recently told Billboard he isn’t interested in record sales, because he cares more about making music than making money.
Asked what keeps him “hyped” about making music, Snoop said: “I love the way that good music feels. Even if it ain’t mine, I just love how that s–t feels.
“But when it’s mine it feels even better because I’m able to do it. I’ve made projects before that weren’t good, but they felt good to me. And that’s all I give a f–k about.
“I don’t care about this sold eight million, 100,000, 22,000 or 17. Who cares? If you ain’t doing it for the feeling, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons. You should never be doing it to make money or become famous. That isn’t what this game was built on.
“Anyone who’s ever been successful or a megastar? They love this s— first and foremost, more than anything.”
