Snoop Dogg releases hip-hop lullaby album for babies
Rapper Snoop Dogg has just released a new hip-hop album: a compilation of his best hits which is aimed at helping babies to sleep peacefully.
According to music site NME, the kiddie album is entitled: ‘Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Snoop Dogg' - and is aimed at introducing infants to Snoop's music.
Watch Snoop make mashed potatoes alongside Martha Stewart:
The 12-track compilation is due to be released on December 6, while a vinyl version was released ahead of that date on this year’s Record Store Day (November 29). You can currently pre-order a CD or MP3 version for just $16.98.
Tracks featured on the album include 'Who Am I (What’s My Name)?', 'Young, Wild & Free', 'Beautiful', 'Gin and Juice', 'Drop It Like It's Hot', 'Snoop’s Upside Ya Head', 'Lay Low', 'Trust Me', 'California Roll', 'Slow Down', 'Sensual Seduction', and 'Doggy Dogg World.'
Meanwhile, the album cover art has also been released on social media. It appears to have been made to resemble a drawing on MS Paint and shows a teddy bear driving a green convertible down a highway towards Long Beach, with an exit to ''Slumber St'' on the right-hand side.
This isn't the first unconventional side-project that the musician has been involved with lately. He recently narrated a YouTube beauty tutorial for beautician and vlogger NikkiTutorials. The video was peppered with many of Snoop's eccentric observations as she applied cosmetics, such as: "smoke it out baby, for me", and "get some cream on that brizz-ush."
Take a look at the hilarious voiceover here:
The vlogger captioned her post: "OMG!!! Today I’m getting some help from a very special guest: SNOOP DOGG!!! In this video, I’m playing with the brand new Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Concealer & Touch-up Stick + Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder, and since they’re called accomplice, Snoop is my partner for the day! Ready for Snoop to Drop It Like It’s Hot? LET’S GO!!! [sic]"
