Snoop Dogg Wants To Cash In The Katy Perry Favor: The MTV News Quote Of The Day

"We're trying to get together and do something on my new album ... so [I'm] definitely in contact with her. She's a sweet girl and I had fun making the record with her. Like I said, I'm looking forward to her being on my record as well."

-Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, discussing his current status with his "California Gurls" collaborator Katy Perry. Snoop was ubiquitous this summer as the guest rapper on the track, which was the debut single on Perry's chart-topping second album Teenage Dream. The rapper would like to get her back on his upcoming album Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary, a throwback to his landmark 1993 debut that featured gangsta rap cornerstones like "Gin and Juice" and "Who Am I (What's My Name)?"

Though Dr. Dre produced the original Doggystyle, the album's sequel will have at least some input from Swizz Beatz. In a recent video message dispatched via Swizz's Twitter account, Snoop talked about working in the studio with the New York producer. "Man, this is big Snoop Dogg coming to you live from the studio somewhere," Snoop said in the clip. "With Swizzle, and he just laced my boots up for my new record. He gave me some gangster sh--, some Crip sh--, some R&B sh--, some hip-hop sh--, some hard sh--, some mean sh--."

No release date has been set yet for Doggystyle 2, though according to the video message there are as many as 18 tracks already in motion. Meanwhile, Perry's album Teenage Dream is on top of the Billboard album chart, and its second single "Teenage Dream" is steadily climbing up the Hot 100.
