Snoop Dogg And Dâm-Funk Forming New Group 7 Days Of Funk


Snoop Dogg continues to expand his horizons musically.

Teaming with Dâm-Funk, they plan on releasing a self-titled collaborative record under the name 7 Days of Funk through Stones Throw on December 10. To give fans a taste, they released their first single today titled “Faden Away.”

“We’re the babies of the Mothership,” Snoop said in a press release. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dâm-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”

“Snoop knew what I was thinking without me having to articulate it. That’s how you know when you gel artistically with someone,” said Dâm-Funk added. “These beats were made for him and he laid down some of the smoothest harmonies and melodies I’ve ever heard. It’s hip-hop, but you can also hear what we grew up on, from Zapp to Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King and Patrice Rushen.”

Snoop will also introduce a new moniker. He will be calling himself Snoopzilla for the project, which pays homage to funk bassist Bootsy Collins. He was widely known as Bootzilla.

Confirmed for the album so far is Daz Dillinger, Kurupt and Steve Arrington.
