Def Jam Recordings executive creative and strategic consultant Snoop Dogg announced Monday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon his 19th studio album is on the way.
Snoop appeared via Livestream and not only spoke about his upcoming project but the release of a Def Jam kids’ record as well. The album will be called ‘Algorithm,’ and will arrive sometime in November featuring “a lot of big-name acts and some new ones.” The album is the follow-up of his latest release ‘From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites’ which dropped back in April and will be the first time that the rapper has put out two studio albums in one year.
Snoop then continued, discussing business under his executive title at Def Jam announcing the label is releasing a Kids’ album.
“I was a fan of Def Jam Records as a kid,” he said. “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.”
“So Def Jam was the perfect place for me,” he continued. “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.”
