Two of the West’s best team up on a new album, 7 Days of Funk.
Released on December 10 through Stones Throw, 7 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.”
