Snoop Dogg and Dam-Funk announce collaborative album for Stones Throw, <i>7 Days of Funk</i>

Two of the West’s best team up on a new album, 7 Days of Funk.

Released on December 10 through Stones Throw7 Days of Funk marks the first time that Snoop Dogg has recorded an album with just one producer since the Dr. Dre-helmed Doggystyle in 1993. It’s been common knowledge for some time that Snoop and Dam-Funk have been working together, but this marks the first official announcement of their album.

“We’re the babies of the Mothership,” says Snoop in a press release for the record. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”

“Snoop knew what I was thinking without me having to articulate it. That’s how you know when you gel artistically with someone,” Dam-Funk says. “These beats were made for him and he laid down some of the smoothest harmonies and melodies I’ve ever heard. It’s hip-hop, but you can also hear what we grew up on, from Zapp to Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King and Patrice Rushen.”
