Snoop Goes For Dolo On Next Album, Ego Trippin
Snoop Dogg revealed to MTV News he’s started working on his next album, Ego Trippin’, with Pharrell of The Neptunes. But unlike his past couple of albums, this LP will not feature any guest appearances. “"Me and Pharrell went into the studio last night, and we're gonna start on this album called Ego Trippin'," Snoop told MTV News. "I'm [gonna] do the whole record, me by myself. I don't want no guest rappers, no singer, nothing. Just Snoop Dogg. I want you to feel me. When I think of all the greats before me ... I bought Rakim's album the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers. I bought one of KRS-One's albums the other day for the hundredth time, no guest rappers.”
“You lose focus after awhile when you're doing an album," Snoop went on to say in the interview. "This record, I'm seriously ego-tripping like, 'I don't want you on my album. Nah, I don't need you.' Doggystyle was about 95 percent of me. But I wanted Tha Dogg Pound on my album. This record, even if this record don't sell, that might be a blessing. It needs to get back to [letting people know] who you are."
In addition, the Doggfather is working on a soundtrack for a new film, A Woman’s Touch. “It’s going to speak directly to some of these woman who speak negatively of me and who don’t understand me,” Snoop told MTV News. “It’s going to be a movie and a record. This is something I was thinking about nine months to a year ago, but it just so happens all this hoopla is happening now. This is the perfect time to shoot in into delivery.”
