Snoop Dogg To Feature Fred Hammond In New Gospel Album
Rap mogul, Snoop Dogg shared a video clip on his Instagram page to preview his gospel project ‘Bible of Love for fans’.
Snoop Dogg who is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California features a famous voice in gospel music, Fred Hammond.
In the preview video clip, Hammond’s signature voice can be heard praising God while Snoop can be seen lip syncing to it.
“He did it for me he’ll do it for you, same God.”
Snoop Dogg whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr.announced that he would create a gospel album earlier in an interview with Beats 1 Radio.
“I’m working on a gospel album. It’s always been on my heart.
I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business and doing this and doing that.
But I just feel like it’s been on my heart too long.”
Last year, the rapper turned Pastor Shirley Caesar‘s 1988 song “Hold My Mule” into a holiday song called “U Name It Holiday Anthem.”
In Snoop’s version of the song, he uses Caesar’s famous line, “I got beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes” as his hook.
The rapper includes spiritual undertones in his rhymes while describing his holiday feast and even making reference to gospel musician and broadcast personality Bobby Jones.
“Up early with Shirley in the kitchen on a mission with hams and yams mac and cheese for the chickens/ Collard greens is finger licking, me with the denim.
Bobby Jones on the television/ Granny say grace for us and aunty making plates for us.
We’re the gift that keeps on giving praise God we keep on living. BC what you want me to say bow your heads for a second take a moment to pray.”
While it seems Snoop is trying to turn over a new leaf musically, he has recently released content that has raised some eyebrows.
The rapper who recently inducted Tupac Shakur in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame appeared in the remixed version of Canadian group BADBADNOTGOOD’s song “Lavender” earlier this year.
In the music video, the rapper could be seen shooting a toy gun at a clown dressed as President Donald Trump.
Instead of bullets, the word “bang” was released from the gun but that didn’t make the president feel any better about the matter.
Trump spoke out about the music video on twitter, throwing a shade at Snoop’s music career.
“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama, Jail time!.”
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also spoke out about Snoop’s appearance in the music video, stating that it could give the wrong people the wrong ideas.
“Snoop shouldn’t have done that.
We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about.
If the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you could have a real problem.”
