Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre teaming up for new album, ‘Missionary’

Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have announced they are collaborating on a new album called Missionary, their first new music in three decades. Speaking on Stephen A. Smith’s ‘Know Mercy’ podcast, Snoop said: “Me and Dr. Dre have been working on an album for the past two months.”

This November is the 30th anniversary of Snoop’s debut solo album Doggystyle; and Missionary is also expected to be released in November. Snoop’s announcement comes after Eminem shared a picture on social media in the studio with the pair last month, along with the caption: “Just a few bros.. hangin out.”

Elsewhere on the podcast, Snoop spoke about becoming the new owner of Death Row Records: “I was looking to get my masters back from Doggystyle — That was what I was searching for. And during the process, they were — the people that had it — were charging more for the masters than for Death Row. So I had to ask myself, ‘Do I want the masters now, or do I want to go back and get that legacy?’”
