Diplo has stated that he’s acting as executive producer on a new reggae album from Snoop Dogg, describing the rapper’s part in the project as “fucking awesome”.

Speaking to MTV, Diplo said: “Snoop Dogg is an icon, man; he’s bigger than the music. What we’re doing is a reggae record. It’s all reggae and he’s singing and he’s doing a fucking awesome job – he had his heart in every song”.

Snoop, who released his ‘Doggumentary’ LP last year, has previously hinted via Twitter that his next record will represent a “reincarnation” of sorts, saying: “It’s special. It’s a real special project to me because it’s like the birth of me becoming who I really am”.

According to Diplo, recording sessions for the untitled record will recommence in April. Make of all this what you will.
