If anyone knows Snoop’s early records with Dr. Dre, you’ll know the two were heavily influenced by the sounds of funk, which was evident in the heavy bass lines of his first hits (i.e “Whats My Name?”).
Well now, Snoop’s love of funk music manifested recently as he unleashed his funk alter ego Snoopzilla as lead singer in his new funk band 7 Days Of Funk, the brainchild of Snoop and Pasadena funk musician Dam-Funk. The group performed their new single “Faden Away” as well as another cut “Do My Thang” from their December 10th group-titled album “7 Days of Funk.”
"We're the babies of the Mothership. I've had funk influences in my music my whole career," Snoop stated in the past about the effort. "Dam-Funk is cold. He's keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him."
Snoop released his reggae album “Reincarnation” under his rastafarian moniker Snoop Lion earlier this year.
