Worldwide Exclusive: Stream Snoop’s New Funk Masterpiece

STH2334-2235(45box)

Just when you had gotten used to calling him Snoop Lion, the dee oh double gee has flipped it once again! Snoop Dogg’s latest alias is Snoopzilla, the insatiable funk monster who stars with SoCal producer Dam-Funk in 7 Days of Funk. The new album furthers Snoop’s career-long dedication to the G-Funk and the P-Funk as descended from his spiritual godfather George Clinton and his frequent collaborator Bootsy Collins (who Snoop tributes here with his Snoopy Collins guise). Bootsy himself guest stars on the album, as does Dogg Pound homies Daz and Kurupt and multi-instrumentalist Steve Arrington. In addition, the Rdio edition of 7 Days of Funk will feature an exclusive bonus track “Wingz,” which will continue to be available only on Rdio. Get into the funk and start to stream and share 7 Days of Funk below.
