Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion or whatever the hell his name was last month, is changing his name again. The rapper is working on a funk album with Dam-Funk and will now go by Snoopzilla for the project.
The album, 7 Days of Funk, will be out December 10 via Stones Throw Records.
“We’re the babies of the Mothership,” said Snoop Dogg via a press statement. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”
“Snoop knew what I was thinking without me having to articulate it. That’s how you know when you gel artistically with someone,” added Dam-Funk in a press statement. “These beats were made for him and he laid down some of the smoothest harmonies and melodies I’ve ever heard. It’s hip-hop, but you can also hear what we grew up on, from Zapp to Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King and Patrice Rushen.”
