During Reggae Month (Feb.) West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg was in Jamaica working on a full Reggae album. It’s now confirmed that Diplo of Major Lazer is producing the LP
The producer who have worked with Beyonce, M.I.A and Vybz Kartel told MTV News:
“Snoop Dogg is an icon, he’s bigger than the music. What we’re doing is a reggae record.
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.”
The album Reincarnated is due out later this year and will have 18 tracks. Diplo (whose behind Usher’s “Climax”) said he and Snoop are going back into the studio next month
“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”.
I hope then come back to Jamaica to record. Snoop Dogg spent a week in the birthplace of Reggae in February, recording material for the album and filming footage for his upcoming documentary. He also recorded three new tracks with popular dancehall star Popcaan.
