Snoop Dogg is getting ready to release his 13th album, Bush, and fans can stream the album over at iTunes Radio a full week ahead of its release, HotNewHipHop notes. The Pharrell Williams-produced record will feature guest appearances by Stevie Wonder, Gwen Stefani and Kendrick Lamar. So far the rapper has shared "Peaches N Cream," "So Many Pros" and "California Rolls."
Bush is due out May 12 via Columbia Records. Snoop's been hyping the new effort for a while now.
"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 said in September. "It's different - it's completely different than anything we've ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good."
Snoop's new album is a return to rap. His previous LP, Reincarnated, was a reggae record billed under the rapper's alias, Snoop Lion. The album peaked at number 16 on the Billboard 200 chart and received mixed reviews.
"Like Willie Nelson before him, Snoop Dogg finally got so high he made a reggae album," Rolling Stone wrote. "Go ahead, laugh. It really is hilarious to hear him preaching Rastafarian gospel in a fake patois. But here's the thing: For all the easy jokes, Reincarnated is Snoop's most consistently enjoyable record in years."
"It's been awesome just watching him step into manhood and make a decision that he's comfortable with," Snoop said.
