Dr. Dre's Passion For Snoop Dogg's New Album Matches "The Chronic," Smitty Says

Dr. Dre's excitement for Snoop Dogg's upcoming album reportedly matches that of The Chronic, according to producer Smitty. The Grammy Award winner sat down with AllHipHop to discuss the highly-anticipated project. He detailed what the studio sessions have been like with the two legendary artists.

"It's gonna be great music," Smitty said. "That's not even the given. What people won't expect is the level of execution that Snoop is committed to. Snoop's in his bag. I was in Hawaii working with other projects last week. He called me - I'm three hours behind, it has to be 8 in the morning - he's like 'Man, this is Snoop. Little bro, I ain't seen Dre this excited since The Chronic. He's really excited about what we're doing.' I said, 'Nah, you think?' He said, 'Y'all ain't got what we got. Y'all go on trips on yachts with him, record and all that shit,' because that's how we started."

He continued: "He took us on a yacht trip to Croatia. We were recording every day, we had three records for Snoop. When we came back, Snoop said 'Yo, this could be something!' That's what set the plug, that's what started it. That's the last thing Snoop said to me: 'Man, he's really excited.' And Snoop's commitment to execution makes us all humble."

As for Snoop and Dre's chemistry in the studio, he added: "I've seen Snoop come in and not be in the mood to record, and he'll still give it his all. Because a lot of people are intimidated to record with Dre. I've seen some of the biggest names not want to record with him because he's that meticulous. He'll make you do the line over and over a thousand times, then tomorrow say, 'Yeah, I was wrong.' That's him. It takes a certain level of commitment to even rock with him."

Snoop first announced that he'd be dropping an album with Dr. Dre while appearing on Stephen A. Smith's Know Mercy podcast back in October. He hasn't given the project an official release date, but he recently promised it's arrival will come this summer.
