Snoop Dogg Targets the Ladies on Next LP

Snoop Dogg may have released his last album, ‘Malice n Wonderland,’ just six months ago, but he’s already thinking about the next LP and what direction it will take. Instead of delving into more hardcore topics over thuggish beats, Snoop plans on making more female-friendly tracks for his next album, which will be much less chauvinistic and objectifying than previous efforts.

“I gotta tone it down,’ he told ‘The Sun’ of his eleventh studio album. “I’ve always given my female fans bits and pieces and I feel like I owe them a whole record.”
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus, has notoriously made aggressively sexual records since he dropped his debut, ‘Doggystyle,’ in 1992, calling women “hoes” and “bitches” on songs throughout his career. But more recently, he has been making an effort to create records for the ladies, dedicating the single ‘Gangsta Luv,’ off ‘Malice n Wonderland,’ to women.

His more sensitive lyrics have served him well on the charts, with Katy Perry‘s ‘California Gurls,’ which features the emcee, charting at No. 1 on the Billboard 100. On the track, he raps, “Toes, tanned / Fit and ready/ Turn it up ’cause it’s gettin’ heavy/ Wild, wild West coast/ These are the girls I love the most.”

‘Malice n Wonderland,’ released in December 2009, was greeted with favorable reviews, but was Snoop’s lowest charting album in his career. Debuting at No. 23 with only 59,000 copies sold in its first week, the album featured guest appearances from Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, R. Kelly, Brandy, Jazmine Sullivan and more, and featured production from The Neptunes, Nottz, Danja and Lil’ Jon, among others.
