Snoop Dogg to release Dr. Dre-produced album, ‘Missionary’

Snoop Dogg will celebrate the 30th anniversary of his debut album, “Doggystyle,” with a new album. He is teaming up with producer Dr. Dre for a forthcoming project called “Missionary.”

“Me and Dr. Dre been working on an album for the past two months and it will be done in November,” Snoop said. Heretofore, “Doggstyle” released on Death Row Records in 1993 was Snoop’s only album that Dr. Dre fully produced. It was a smash, achieving certified quadruple platinum status and his biggest-selling album to date. Dre parted ways with Death Row before the release of Snoop’s 1996 sophomore album, “Tha Doggfather.” The collaboration is especially notable as Dre, 57, was instrumental in Snoop's rise to fame. They first collaborated on the title track for the 1992 film Deep Cover, a song that was released via Death Row Records, co-founded by Dre, and put Snoop on the map. After heavily featuring Snoop on his 1992 The Chronic album, Dre also produced Doggystyle. Then, Snoop lent his rap skills to several songs on Dre's 1999 album 2001, and the following year, he featured on "Bitch Please II" produced by Dre from Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP. Snoop and Dre would reunite for Dre’s 1999 solo album, “2001,” on hits songs “Still D.R.E.” and “The Next Episode.” Over the years, Dre produced new songs for Snoop, including the 2000 hit single, “Lay Low.”
