Snoop Dogg Gets "Rhythm"

November release set for rapper's next album

July 6, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Snoop Dogg will release his seventh studio set, R&G: (Rhythm and Gangsta) The Masterpiece, on November 16th.

R&G is the follow-up to Snoop's 2002 album, Paid tha Cost to Be tha Boss. Since then, the rapper has busied himself with touring, acting (he appeared in the comedy Soul Plane earlier this year) and coaching, as he launched Snoop Dogg's Youth Football Camp ("Learn how to pimp game on the football field," a statement promised) in June.

The new set also finds Snoop pairing his Doggy Style label with the Neptunes' Star Trak. The Neptunes are among the album's producers, and the record will also include an appearance by the Gap Band's Charlie Wilson.

Snoop will likely showcase some of his new rhymes this summer on Linkin Park's Projekt Revolution Tour. The thirty-two-date outing will also include performances by Korn, M.O.P., Ghostface, Less Than Jake and the Used.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
