The moment Snoop fans have all been waiting for has finally come, the release of his newest album, Coolaid. For weeks, the rap legend has been dropping singles from the album, however, now it’s available for all to enjoy. The original release date was July the 1st, but it made its debut 48 hours ahead of schedule. Mr. D-O-Double-G may have been on a bit of a break from the gangsta rap world, but he’s back and is still spitting fire like the Snoop we all know and love.
Snoop Dogg has returned to the gangsta rap scene with his 14th album Coolaid. The cover features Snoop as the classic dog cartoon that appears to be selling swag, style, lingo, hair, and “G”. Being that it’s a Coolaid stand, it’s safe to assume that the juices are merely ingredients to coolness.
The album provides fans with a flashback to 1993 album Doggstyle, which also features Snoop’s signature dog cartoon. Instead of chasing big-booty women, he is now serving up some colorful drinks just in time for summer.
If you pay close attention, you will recognize Snoop representing the Crips with a hand sign above the city. There’s also the man on the bike sporting a blue bandanna while the other puffs on something that’s more than likely cannabis, Snoop’s favorite plant.
The complete cast
Snoop’s Coolaid is the first rap album he’s done in five years. Over the past couple of years, he’s been experimenting with reggae and R&B. However, Coolaid returns him to the gangsta rap scene that gave the icon his fame. The album’s first single is “Kush Ups”, a bumping track that features cannabis enthusiast Wiz Khalifa. The two are set to embark on their 33-date High Road tour on July 20th in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The album features many other musical talents, besides the smokey Khalifa. The cast of characters include: Too $hort, Swizz Beatz, Jeremih, Trick Trick, E-40, Jazze Pha, Suga Free and October London.
