*”The church is supposed to be the most welcoming place in the world, so I’m anxious to see how welcoming they’re going to be.”
Yep, believe it or not, our favorite Uncle dropped a gospel album.
“Bible of Love” is Snoop Dogg‘s first gospel project and the first release from All The Time Entertainment, a label the award-winning legend launched to provide more opportunities for gospel artists. EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas meet with the media icon and rapped about the 32 track album, his Granny and haters.
Q: How do you hope the Gospel community will respond to “Bible of Love?”
SD: I don’t care about the criticism because I’m doing this for Spiritual reasons. This is not a money-driven project, this is a spirit driven project. My spirit is in the right place and for those who have something to say their Spirit ain’t right. Because if your spirit is right, the first thing you’re going to do is welcome someone like me – who comes from where I come from and does what I do. They should say, ‘you know what maybe he could reach people that we can’t reach, maybe he’s doing God’s work.’ I thought the Bible said that Jesus was in the streets…
Q: Is this album your testimony?
SD: Kind of but it’s not a complete testimony because I’m constantly tested. It’s just a testimony you’re getting from this portion of my career right now. There are a lot of artists on this album that have been blackballed or bashed just like me. This is the greatest project we could do because it’s a bunch of lost souls trying to find their way back home and the church is supposed to be the most welcoming place in the world, so I’m anxious to see how welcoming they’re going to be.
Q: What would be your Granny’s favorite track on the album?
SD: Probably “When It’s All Over” featuring Patti LaBelle. She [LaBelle] didn’t like the song at first but we told her, ‘we like it the way it is, its special.’
