Snoop has gone Gospel!

Well sorta! The iconic hip hop star is teaming up with RCA Inspiration for a new project titled “Bible of Love.” It is his 16th studio album and the first ever from the award winning rapper. He is releasing it through his new, All The Time label which was developed to provide more opportunities for gospel music artists.

According to the press release, “Bible of Love,” features Snoop and individual performances from a diverse array of acclaimed artists spanning multiple generations. Snoop feels there is a need for people to be unified more now than ever and he and co-executive producer, Lonny Bereal, handpicked some of Snoop’s personal favorites from gospel and R&B including, B. SladeFaith EvansRance AllenThe Clark Sisters and Tye Tribbett (more guest artists to be announced). He has always been inspired by gospel music and created this double disc, 32-track collection to both showcase the genre and bring people together.

Five songs, “Blessing Me Again” (featuring Rance Allen), “Blessed & Highly Favored Remix” (featuring The Clark Sisters), “Words Are Few” (featuring B. Slade), “Saved” (featuring Faith Evans and 3rd Generation), and Bible of Love’s first official single, “You,” which features Tribbett, are available to those who pre-order the album now.

Snoop credits his late grandmother, Dorothy Tate, with introducing him to gospel music and inspiring him to finally release a gospel project. He says, “I am blessed to have so many legendary friends join me on this journey. As the country is in one of its heaviest times and is so divided, I wanted to make an album that spreads love and unity around the world. That’s what I was taught, so that’s all I know. Real love.”
