Released on 3/16, (hint, hint… think John 3:16!) Bible of Love is Snoop Dogg’s 16th album, but first-ever gospel project. The award-winning artist and icon, whose career spans more than 25 years, is making new waves in the music industry. Snoop Dogg’s career was rather quiet for a few years, but he made headlines recently for less than stellar behavior. Now the rapper seems to have turned a corner from his more violent theatrics (see the article on Snoop’s music video featuring shooting President Trump, here: Snoop Shoots Prez In Video). Bible of Love is all about positive vibes, peace, love and harmony. Also, with this new release, Snoop launched All The Time Entertainment, a label to provide more opportunities for gospel music artists. If you’re old school and that record label name sounds familiar to you it should. If you grew up in a black church back in the day then you know the call and response: “God is good, all the time… and all the time, God is good!” According to Snoop, he’s always been inspired by the goodness of God.
Bible of Love Is Not Your Ordinary Album
Bible of Love defies every rule in the music industry, clocking in at an impressive 32 tracks long duration. To pull it off, Snoop collaborated with some of the heaviest hitters in the Gospel industry including Fred Hammond, Tye Tribett, Mary Mary, Rance Allen, The Clark Sisters, Faith Evans, and many more. According to Snoop, he and co-executive producer, Lonny Bereal, handpicked some of Snoop’s personal favorites from gospel and R&B. His goal was to both showcase the genre and bring people together.
