Diplo is an up-and-coming electronic DJ/producer. Snoop Dogg is a legend in the rap game. Not a likely combo to collaborate on an album. What’s more unlikely though, is the duo dipping into reggae.
They’re not just dipping into the rasta genre, they’re releasing an 18-track album. Diplo seems pretty pumped about the project:
“Snoop Dogg is an icon, man; he’s bigger than the music,” Diplo said. “What we’re doing is a reggae record. It’s like Snoop Dogg and Major Lazer together. It’s all reggae and he’s singing and he’s doing a f—ing awesome job and I never knew it, but he had his heart in every song. … We’re going to get back into the production of it next month, and I’m really proud of that record. It’s the first record I’ve ever executive-produced and his crew is amazing.”
Snoop and Diplo have already worked together with Kid Cudi on the 2010 single, That Tree. Give it a listen below to see if the combo works for you.
