Earlier this month (November 1), Snoop announced he’ll be releasing a new album called ‘Take It From A G’ in December.
The rapper shared the news on Instagram in a video that features a toy low-rider, decked out in purple and gold L.A. Lakers colours, driving around the streets while an untitled song plays in the background.
Snoop’s new album follows the release of last year’s ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, which includes the track ‘Let Bygones Be Bygones’, where he pays tribute to one-time enemy Suge Knight.
The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ star also recently criticised Donald Trump by calling him a “racist” who is “disrespecting every colour”.
Snoop told the US president to earn the public’s votes in the lead up to the 2020 US election, which was ultimately won by Joe Biden – despite various protestations and legal challenges from Trump.
