“Snoop Dogg” and “Gospel Album” In The Same Sentence: It Happened.
Snoop Dogg, the multi-faceted, multi-platinum recording artist, has released a gospel album.
Yes. Mr. “B****hes Ain’t S*** but H*** and Tricks”. THAT Snoop Doggy Dogg. The one and the same.
It is a seismic shift from his gangsta rap roots like Doggystyle and recent releases such as Make America Crip Again and the 220 EP, the formula that made him a household name. He has recently spent time hanging in Martha Stewart’s kitchen, hosting game shows, starring in a Netflix series about little league football, and smoking lots of weed. As diverse an artist Snoop has proven to be, a gospel album was the last thing I ever expected from him. However, I shouldn’t be surprised. After all, he successfully pulled off the reggae album, Reincarnated, under his “Snoop Lion” persona. He has proven to be bold and creative by trying his hand at different genres.
Bible of Love released on March 16th and, surprisingly, is actually pretty good. Let’s keep it real, though. Snoop was smart enough to bring in other talent to pull this off. Featuring a wide array of guests appearances, including Faith Evans, Fred Hammond, Kim Burrell, Mary Mary, and newcomer October London. He contributes to each song, be it a verse or production. This 32 track, two and a half hour double album has a few gems that will certainly get some air play. Here’s the track list.
