Snoop Dogg Says He’s Been Working on New Album With Dr. Dre For 8 Months

Snoop Dogg always has 10 irons in the fire. But on Friday morning’s (Jan. 26) Good Morning America the Doggfather broke some news about the one iron his fans care about the most. “I can let the rabbit out the hat. I’ve been working on a record with Dr. Dre for the past 8 months. We’re about ready to drop a single in a couple weeks, so that’s what I’ve been cooking up,” Snoop told GMA‘s Michael Strahan while promoting his new Prime Video movie, The Underdoggs.

At press time there was no additional information on the unnamed project or timetable for release and a spokesperson for Snoop could not be reached for comment.

Back in Oct. 2022, Snoop said he was almost done with a Dre-produced sequel to his 1993 Dre-produced solo debut album, Doggystyle, with a release planned to celebrate that collection’s 30th anniversary. At the time, Snoop said he and Dre had been in the studio for two months and that they expected to be finished with the sessions for the LP he said would be called Missionary before the end of the year.

In keeping with his reputation as the world’s most productive stoner, Snoop told Strahan that he loves being busy, especially when it comes to a project like Underdoggs, which was inspired by his work with his Snoop Youth Football League.

“I’m mastering the craft of who I am, and to be the best who I am, is to do the things that make me feel good. And the main two things is fun, right? F-U-N and F-U-N-D-S, if it makes funds and it’s fun, I’m in,” Snoop said. “I started off as a underdog. That’s the best dog to ever be, because you’re the one they don’t pay attention to. So you gotta figure out how to master you, to where you become the greatest you that you can be.” 

As for the film, Snoop said working with the kids in the league — whose most famous alumni include Houston Texans QB C.J. Stroud, winner of the 2024 offensive rookie of the year — has made him remember what a huge role the sport played in his youth. “I spent my money on brand new equipment, bought fields that we rented, referees, rule books, everything, we did it all the right way,” Snoop told Strahan. “Football was the best thing that ever happened to me as a kid. It taught me how to have discipline and have respect. So I wanted to give some of that back that was given to me.”
