Snoop Dogg continues to surprise us with his various projects from rap to gospel and now heâ€™s venturing into the childrenâ€™s music genre.
The 48-year-old rapper has tapped into several different genres in the past including gospel, reggae, and funk, but heâ€™s now adding another album to his long list of experimental projects, as heâ€™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 â€œDrop It Like Itâ€™s Hot,â€� â€œGin and Juice,â€� and â€œSensual Seduction.â€�
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 Novemberâ€™s Record Store Day, which also fell on Black Friday, Nov. 29, 2019.
Meanwhile, Snoop recently told Billboard he isnâ€™t interested in record sales, because he cares more about making music than making money.
Asked what keeps him â€œhypedâ€� about making music, Snoop said: â€œI love the way that good music feels. Even if it ainâ€™t mine, I just love how that sâ€“t feels.
â€œBut when itâ€™s mine it feels even better because Iâ€™m able to do it. Iâ€™ve made projects before that werenâ€™t good, but they felt good to me. And thatâ€™s all I give a fâ€“k about.
â€œI donâ€™t care about this sold eight million, 100,000, 22,000 or 17. Who cares? If you ainâ€™t doing it for the feeling, youâ€™re doing it for the wrong reasons. You should never be doing it to make money or become famous. That isnâ€™t what this game was built on.
â€œAnyone whoâ€™s ever been successful or a megastar? They love this sâ€” first and foremost, more than anything.â€�
