I know that you might not believe it, but it’s true because this is not a click bait stuff, and you need to read it to the end for you to get all the full details of what went under the radar that made Uncle Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion as he’s fondly called by fans turn Gospel singer.
Legendary American Hip-Hop artist, Singer, and Songwriter, Snoop Dogg has finally found his love for music away from the ungodly genre of music called secular music into the Christendom called Gospel music.
Snoop Dogg who’s regarded as one of the greatest rapper of the last three decades further shared some of the tracks from his upcoming debut gospel album at the BET’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration where he was one of the headlining acts. Speaking on the project, Snoop Dogg says he was inspired in part by conversations he had with Faith Evans while recording their Notorious B.I.G. tribute, “When We Party.”
“Me, Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily,” he explained. “She feels like she wanna get down with me. All of the people that I know, from Charlie Wilson to Jeffrey Osborne, whoever I want to get down with. I’m gonna make it all the way right. It’s gonna feel good,” he added.
The 5 songs from his upcoming album titled: Bible of Love featured other top gospel acts like Tye Tribbett, the Clark Sisters, Faith Evans, Rance Allen and his mom, Beverly Tate who is an evangelist and has been supporting him in the dream to release a gospel album.
Speaking in an interview with The Associated Press about his experience performing gospel music he said, “I am never nervous to perform onstage, but I was nervous onstage to perform at that — this is gospel, this is Church. These people, boy they would shoot you down if your game ain’t together. They would throw the Bible at you. ‘I can’t believe he got up there and did…’
I said, ‘Hold on now. Let me get my thing together.’ I shook that nervousness, though.
Donnie McClurkin came over to me when I finished performing, and he looked me into my eyes and said, ‘If you weren’t rapping, brother, you’d be preaching.’
