Snoop Dogg Announces Gospel Album ‘Bible of Love’

Posted by Unknown on 11:30 AM

Snoop Dogg goes gospel. The hip-hop icon is readying his first gospel album, Snoop Dogg Presents the Bible of Love, for release this year.

In May, the D-O-Double-G confirmed the calling to release a religious project. “I’m working on a gospel album,” he told Dr. Dre’s Beats 1 show “The Pharmacy.” “It’s always been on my heart. I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business or doing this or doing that. I just felt like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now.”

The album was inspired in part by conversations Snoop had with Faith Evans while recording their Notorious B.I.G. tribute, “When We Party.” “Me, Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily,” he explained. “She feel like she wanna get down with me. All of the people that I know, from Charlie Wilson to Jeffrey Osborne, whoever I want to get down with. I’m gonna make it all the way right. It’s gonna feel good.”

In anticipation of his 16th album, Snoop is set to hit the stage with Faith, Tye Tribbett, The Clark Sisters, and Rance Allen at Super Bowl Gospel Celebration ahead of Super Bowl LII on Feb. 1, where Erica Campbell, Sheila E. and Donnie McClurkin, and Sounds of Blackness will perform. The event will air on BET Feb. 3, just one day before the big game.

Even outside of his gospel album planning, Snoop has maintained a busy schedule. In October, he released Make America Crip Again, and more recently, he announced “Coach Snoop,” an inspirational youth football program coming to Netflix soon. “Music gave me the power to create a football league, but football is taking me to places music could have never taken me to,” he revealed in a statement to press.

Bible of Love follows Snoop’s 2017 album Neva Left, which debuted at No. 54 on the Billboard 200.
