Snoop Dogg Is Shedding All The Strange Nicknames For His New Album

Snoop promises an all-new sound on his next album.

When Snoop Dogg isn't busy hosting awards shows, he's back in the studio working on yet another solo project. For his latest album, he teamed up with Pharrell and he's promising something completely fresh.

"It's a great record me and Pharrell did from top to bottom. It feels good and I'm happy to be back in the studio working with one of my favorite producers and homeboys," Snoop told MTV News on the BET Hip Hop Awards carpet. "It's different -- it's completely different than anything we've ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good."

He confirmed that he won't be taking on any new monikers this time around (remember Snoop Lion?) instead he'll just be focused on the music.

Features on the new project will include Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson, and of course, "Snoop Dogg -- he'll be on my album. Just Snoop Dogg with two Gs, baby."
