Look out, Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams may have found himself a new partner in Snoop Dogg. Williams (Hugo’s other half in the Neptunes) and Snoop first worked their tandem magic with “Beautiful,” and their latest collaboration, “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” is a top-10 hit.
The bass-heavy club banger is just one of several collaborations on Snoop’s forthcoming album, Snoop Dogg R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece, his debut for Star Trak, the Neptunes’ label. Due November 23, the LP also features appearances from 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake, Nelly, Lil Jon and Trina, among others.
Snoop also pays homage to the old school by enlisting the help of legendary P-Funk bassist Bootsy Collins and Gap Band frontman (and frequent Snoop collaborator) Charlie Wilson, who are featured on two tracks each.
