Snoop Dogg has some new music in the pipeline, and the cover art could be an indication of a throwback sound. He shared the album artwork for the album, titled NevaLeft,on his Instagram, writing: “The evolution of the dogg. New album #NevaLeft comin May 19!!”
Neva Left will be Snoop’s 15th studio album, following last year’s Coolaid. Perhaps the hip hop legend’s been stewing over the past recently, because not only is he treating us to new songs, but he’s also shopping around a drama series based on his early days as a rapper.
According to Deadline, Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger are floating the idea of a television series based on their time with Tha Dogg Pound, the rap duo made up of Dillinger and Kurupt. It will follow their early days and come-up on Dre’s iconic record The Chronic, and will take inspiration from Tha Dogg Pound documentary DPG Eulogy.
“Snoop and I are always being asked to assist others with their Death Row projects because we were there from the beginning, until the demise,” Dillinger said. “We saw Dre leave, Pac murdered, and we were forced to run the company when Suge Knight went back to prison. Our perspective is honest and unique. There are countless stories that the world has never heard about those early days.”
