Snoop Dogg planning to release Def Jam kids album—Plus Star-Studded solo.
Snoop Dogg Confirms Two New Albums: One For Adults And One For Kids
During a recent interview on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (Sept. 27), Snoop discussed his new role as Def Jam executive creative and strategic consultant.
The first of the new albums which will be Snoop’s 19th studio album, following April’s From Tha Streets to Tha Suites—It's called Algorithms.
It’s set to arrive in November, and it’s “featuring a lot of big-name acts,” Snoop told Fallon. This will mark the first time Snoop has released two studio albums in the same calendar year.
Snoop also highlighted that he’s working on a kids album.
“I was a fan of Def Jam Records as a kid, and knowing the talent that they have over there and the opportunity that was waiting on me, I wanted to go over there and give a lot of opportunity to the artists over there to get some information, some wisdom and some guidance from me and then also develop some new acts and give some opportunity,” he told Fallon.
“So Def Jam was the perfect place for me, considering how much I love it and how much it means to hip-hop and how it really needed somebody like me to change the energy of the building. I’m over there for one reason: to get the music back poppin’ and to make the people feel the way they’re supposed to.”
