Snoop Dogg Announces New Album ‘Algorithms’

Snoop Dogg Featured

Big Snoop Dogg has a lot going on but he will always make time for music. The Doggfather was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that he will be dropping two new albums.

The first of the new albums from Snoop Dogg will be Algorithms, the follow-up to this past April’s From Tha Streets to That Suites.

If that’s not enough, Snoop Dogg will also make a Def Jam kids’ album.

“I was a fan of Def Jam Records as a kid, and knowing the talent that they have over there and the opportunity that was waiting on me, I wanted to go over there and give a lot of opportunity to the artists over there to get some information, some wisdom and some guidance from me and then also develop some new acts and give some opportunity,” Snoop said. “So Def Jam was the perfect place for me, considering how much I love it and how much it means to hip-hop and how it really needed somebody like me to change the energy of the building. I’m over there for one reason: to get the music back poppin’ and to make the people feel the way they’re supposed to.”

In June, Snoop Dogg’s list of jobs grew again as he will now work with Def Jam Recordings as the executive creative and strategic consultant. The Doggfather’s new role “will allow him to strategically work across the label’s executive team and artist roster,” Variety reports.

Snoop will be based in LA for the position and report to Universal Music Group Chairman & CEO Lucian Grainge and Def Jam interim Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Harleston.

In a statement, Grainge said: “We’re thrilled that the one and only Snoop Dogg is bringing his deep industry experience, strong relationships, boundless creativity and infectious energy to Def Jam.”

The Fugees have reunited and are set to tour the nation to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album, The Score. Speaking with Billboard, Pras Michel called the reunion what “the culture really needed.”

Pras would also reveal how the team would get back on the same page for their performances.

“We let the music and our vibe and energy just naturally come out,” Pras said. “Then we heard the band doing their thing, putting it together and vibing. And it just started to feel like those old moments that made us so happy. Making music and just making people smile, so that made us smile too. It just made us feel good.”

He added, “One thing I would say about us is that everything has to feel organic. It’s not about anything but that. Because if it ain’t feel right for even one of us, I don’t think we would’ve been able to pull it off.”

Presented by Diaspora Calling and produced by Live Nation, the 12-city international tour kicked off with an intimate pop-up show in New York City.

Giving a taste of what’s to come, Fugees appeared at the Roof at Pier 17 in New York City for a partnered performance with Global Citizen Live. The trio took the stage in front of a crowd of over 3,000 but took the stage after three and a half hours of waiting for the audience.

During their time on stage, Fuugees performed seven songs. Opening with “The Score,” the trio would go on to perform “How Many Mics,” “Zealots,” “Fu-Gee-La,” “Killing Me Softly,” “Ready or Not,” and “No Woman, No Cry.”

“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history,” said Ms. Lauryn Hill. “I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention. I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary, and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite, perform the music we loved, and set an example of reconciliation for the world.”

Fugees will hit the United Center in Chicago on November 2 before hitting Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, Paris, London, and more, before finishing the tour in Africa, with the final shows taking place in Nigeria and Ghana. Full tour details are available below.

Ja Rule is the Internet’s unanimous winner of the latest VERZUZ battle. Appearing on Drink Champs, Ja revealed that he and his opponent Fat Joe purposely avoided performing any songs that included R. Kelly. A good call seeing that R. Kelly was found guilty on all charges in New York.

Speaking with N.O.R.E., Ja Rule spoke on the conversation with Fat Joe and revealed it was a “tough” call, but knew that songs with the disgraced singer had to be thrown out.

“R. Kelly’s a flawed man, he’s going through his problems,” Ja said. “He’s flawed. Nobody’s perfect and, you know, what he’s done is what he’s done and he has to account. But the art, do we throw it away? It’s such a touchy subject, and for me it’s a touchier subject.”

On Monday (Sept. 27), R. Kelly was been found guilty of being the orchestrator of a scheme to recruit women and underage girls for sex. The New York Times reports R. Kelly was found guilty on each count named in his racketeering and sex trafficking trial.

R. Kelly faced nine counts. One count of racketeering, with 14 underlying acts that included sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, and sex trafficking charges, and also eight additional counts of violations of the Mann Act, a sex trafficking law.

The ‘Trick and Trina Morning Show’ Pulled From Miami Radio

It’s a wrap for the Trick and Trina Morning Show in Miami. According to The Jasmine Brand, the popular morning show on Miami’s 99JAMZ has been axed.

The show premiered in 2020 and continued the duo’s respective runs as faces of the Miami Hip-Hop scene. A direct reason for the show’s removal has not be given.

“With the radio show, I am giving you a mix of Trina the MC and entertainer, as well as Katrina the businesswoman and the personality speaking to some of your favorite stars,” Trina told the Miami New Times of the show. “I have become the interviewer at the forefront of our show. Infuse this with Trick Daddy’s raw personality, and the listeners will hear a different side of our chemistry.”

In June, Trina sparked controversy on the show with her remarks about the protestors, calling them “animals.” She would go on to apologize.

“I just want to say I apologize sincerely to everybody I offended by what I said,” Trina said. “I spoke passionately about people destroying our community here in Miami, Florida, Dade County, Liberty City, the inner cities. I’m not trying to take away anything from anyone or anybody that was abused from the police. And I can see where that was insensitive.”

Even with the apology, a petition circulating asking for Trina to be removed from radio and amassed 15,000 signatures.

Trick Daddy was not short on controversy. During a June Clubhouse conversation, Trick Daddy sounded off on how he feels about JAY-Z and Beyonce. “Beyoncé don’t write music and barely can sing her motherfuckin’ self,” Trick opened. “Beyoncé can’t sang!”

“I’mma give an unpopular opinion right now: Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to New York. That’s why they together. Jay-Z ain’t never won the greatest rapper alive. Whoever put him on a level like that?”

In July, Trick Daddy was caught on camera engaging in an altercation with a woman outside of a Miami nightclub.
