Snoop Dogg's deep into a couple of his music projects, most notably the long-awaited debut from 213. Snoop said the trio's album, tentatively titled "The Hard Way", will be released December 16, although a spokesperson for the label said it was pushed back to 2004. The first single, according to Snoop, is called "Find A Way".
"We're trying to get the video together for it right now. We're going to put a movie together for it also. We just trying to make sure it all comes together fly 'cause this is a dream project for me. We got a record right now that's blowing up all over the world, called 'Fly,' off the mixtape Welcome to Chuuch Vol. 2. Just trying to give the people a little something. I do records for the streets all the time." Snoop said.
213 are working with the Neptunes and frequent collaborators Battlecat, Jelly Roll and Hi-Tek, but no guest rappers.
"We felt like this was our first record that the whole world was able to hear from us, so we wanted to make it more or less be about us," Snoop said.
After the 213 album, Snoop Dogg hopes to drop his next solo project, "Snoopafly", in June.
"I already got a lot of songs done that's gonna be on that album. I just know it's going to be a great record. I'm lookin' forward to working with my main man Puff Daddy. I'm going to let Puff do some things. Hopefully Dr. Dre can do a few things. Neptunes, you know, the usuals, Doghouse Production. I just want to make a quality record and show people I still got it." Snoop said.
Also, today "True Crime: Streets of L.A." (PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube) will be released featuring Snoop as an unlockable character who fights crime while cruising around town in a custom convertible with hydraulics. The soundtrack will drop a week later on November 11.
