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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
