Snoop Dogg Previews Ego Trippin’ For Friends !

bet-awards-2003-21-pharrell-snoop.jpgApparently those 2 Neptunes tracksFeet Don’t Fail Me Now & Sets Up” will be on the album according to Snoop. New LP features work of DJ Quik, Teddy Riley, The Neptunes, Raphael Saadiq and Shaheem Reid.

Snoop has more famous friends than a dog has fleas, and everybody’s welcome to join him. They just might serve as a muse to one of his rhymes. “Me and Leonardo DiCaprio,” he raps on a song called “Hollywood Nights.” “He keep a bad ho. I keep a bad ho.” Pharrell Williams and Too Short also contribute to the LP. This time around, not only did Snoop get people like Shawty Red to write his song lyrics, he brought in a team of aspiring MCs to pen his rap lyrics too. “I’m into giving people chances,” he explained. “They wrote what they thought Snoop Dogg should be saying. It turned out wonderful.”

snoop-dogg.jpgLong Beach, California, rapper turned the album in to his record label Friday and still couldn’t get enough of it that night. He gave it one more spin as his friends DJ Quik and Teddy Riley arrived. We’re known as QDT (DJ Quick, Snoop Dogg & Teddy Riley) Compton’s finest, if you ask me. We’ve always played for the same team, we just never wore the same uniform. Before I was making records, I was buying Riley’s records, I was inspired by the whole movement that he had with the New Jack Swing and the R&B records from Al B. Sure, and Keith Sweat.

snoop-dogg-ii.jpgQDT want to work together the way Timbaland and Justin Timberlake make albums together and have gone to write, produce and cameo on records for other artists. Riley was given the task of coming up with Ego Trippin’s second single, a follow-up to the monster track “Sensual Seduction.” We redid Morris Day and the Time’s “Cool”. People are gonna trip when they hear how I’m singing on there. Teddy had me sing the whole thing by myself. Elsewhere, on what will probably be another single, tentatively titled “I’m Alright,” the vocal duties are shifted to Raphael Saadiq. ”
