Rapper Snoop Dogg is planning on becoming a gospel star by releasing an album of spiritually lifting songs.
The Gin and Juice hitmaker will review Snoop Dogg Presents the Bible of Love at the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration next month, as he will be joined by gospel singers Tye Tribbett, The Clark Sisters, Faith Evans and Rance Allen to perform new tracks at the Benson Great Hall at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota on February the 1st, according to Billboard.
Snoop Dogg first announced his mission to release a gospel album in May, revealing he had been thinking about experimenting in the genre for a while.
“It’s always been on my heart,” he explained in an interview on Beats 1 Radio’s The Pharmacy.
“I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business and doing this and doing that (sic). But I just feel like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now.”
Snoop reevaluated himself as ‘Snoop Lion’ for a reggae album in 2012. He also embraced his funk roots under the name ‘Snoopzilla’ for a collaboration with artist Dam-Funk in 2013.
