Lately, Snoop Dogg has been making the headlines for just about everything other than his music: trolling LeBron James, recapping Game of Thrones with Seth Rogen, and hosting a 4/20 wellness retreat with Wiz Khalifa.
But that’s about to change because, out of the blue, he just returned to his first passion and dropped a new mixtape with The Eastsidaz dubbed That’s My Work 4.
Snoop’s new project combines old and new material and is like a homecoming of sorts, considering his reunion with The Eastsidaz, a group he signed to his Doggystyle Records back in the late ’90s that earned a platinum record with their debut album, Snoop Dogg Presents Tha Eastsidaz.
The group later disbanded in the middle of making their second album, when member Tray Dee was convicted of attempted murder, and presumably some of the older material on That’s My Work 4 is from that time period.
There’s no guests on the mixtape though it is hosted by DJ Drama, best known for his production with T.I. and Lil Wayne.
Grab the mixtape below, which is hopefully an indication that more music from Snoop is on the way — his Lion form, Dogg form or otherwise.
