Snoop Dogg Producing Gospel Album
Snoop Dogg is producing a “gospel” album? Fo shizzle, my nizzle.
The profane, rapping, pot aficionado is committed to creating and starring in a gospel music album, this according to Instagram. Many of his 19.3 million followers were very excited.
The Instagram photo is a screenshot of a text that Mr. Dogg sent to his mother, an ordained minister named Beverly Broads Green.
In a radio interview, Mr. Dogg iterated his commitment to the project, saying, “It’s always been on my heart, I just never got around to it ’cause I always be doing gangster business or doin’ this or doin’ that.” The studio seemed excited.
Some are reporting that Mr. Dogg’s album will be connected to an upcoming reality show.
A gospel album may be a stretch for the rapper, who typically focuses more on lyrics like this, from his song, Vatos:
Vato you won’t believe what they saw,
I saw these pack a guys and they act real hard… (And what they do?)
They twisted fingers say you know who we are…
He said: I dont give a f#@$ I’m Snoop Doggy Dogg … (Ah huh)
They kept f#$@#% and it went too far,
So Snoopy he went straight to the trunk of his car (And what he get?),
he got his gun and they start running hard,
he started firing and then he just charged…
Run Ni#$, Run N#$@(Plow)
Duck N@#%, Duck N@#% (Plow)
Run Mother#@$r, Run (Plow)
Run Mother@#%, Run (Plow)
I didn’t mean to hit what I hit
Now that’s 3 mother#$@ dead, and I ain’t seen s@#%$.
Some Christians are cautious but optimistic. The publication, Christian Leaders, wrote, “Could it be that this man, who has walked a hard road and has produced some of the most questionable content our culture has seen these last couple decades, is seeking God? I think it’s entirely possible—perhaps even plausible considering he has a mother, active in the faith, who is praying for him and has likely been praying for him from the start.”
It’s possible. But it’s not likely.
Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. — Amos 5:23
