Come Nov. 19, Snoop Dogg will unveil his nineteenth studio LP Algorithm, which will be his first with Def Jam since joining the company as a senior strategic advisor. As previously reported by REVOLT, the legendary emcee stated his reasoning behind the new role in an announcement video:

“Now, you may wonder why so late in my career would I wanna work for Def Jam Records? Let me tell you, as a young rapper, Def Jam was the holy grail of hip hop. … So, when I got the opportunity, my main focus on Def Jam Records was to go and help the artists and give them love and wisdom and guidance and understanding…”

Today (Nov. 5), Snoop switches back to his artist hat to deliver “Murder Music,” a dark, creeping cut that sees production from Nottz and additional assists Benny The Butcher, Jadakiss, and Busta Rhymes — three of the dopest emcees in the game. As such, Snoop gives his collaborators the floor to deliver some of their hardest bars to date:

“Yeah, some come through the water, some come through the border, some of them get caught, but that’s dependin’ on the porter, old niggas hidin’, young niggas slidin’, I’m bein’ a man just protectin’ and providin’, my only concern is if it cooked right, yy chain yellow way the diamonds set up, it make it look white…”

Back in April, Snoop Dogg From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites, a 10-track effort that saw plenty of contributions from Kokane, Larry June, his Eastsidaz comrades Big Tray Deee and Goldie Loc, Prohoezak, Devin The Dude, and more. That project was also led by top tier singles like “CEO,” “Roaches In My Ashtray,” and the song-turned-G Star Raw advertisement “Say It Witcha Booty.”
