In a viral video that was released today (September 2) rapper Snoop Dogg, who was accompanied by producer Swizz Beatz at an unnamed studio, announced the name of his upcoming album.

“And the album is Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary be on the lookout for it you bitch,” said Snoop towards the end of the video.

Both Swizz and Snoop explained that they recorded a number of tracks for Snoop’s project while in the studio.

“He just laced my boots up for my new record,” Snoop explained. “Motherfucker gave me some gangsta shit, some crib shit, some R&B shit, some Hip Hop shit, hard shit, some mean shit.”

“That’s how we used to do it back in the day. It used to be about the sound so right now we constructing sounds for the album,” Swizz added.

As Snoop Dogg’s debut album Doggystyle remains one of Snoop’s most talked about albums. The album was released on November 23, 1993.

There’s no word on when Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary will be released.

    it was a real gangsta time in 93 when snoops first album droped,no you tube no sites just his tape ..

  • turtleland

    i think it will be like when he worked with pharell, a few bangers but still hit and miss and definitely not classic

  • turtleland

    while Snoop and McG (Swizzy) makes Terminator: Salvation (Doggystyle 2), James Cameron (Dre_ will be busy making Avatar (Detox), snoop shold have took Raekwon's lead if he wants to make an authentic sequel and not just cash in on his legacy

  • jack777pot

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! not swizz cheeze! that guy is a huge gimmick. one out of every fifty beats he makes (steals) is decent. i don't think the guy ever had an original idea. snoop would be better off constructing a whole album with a hot up-and-coming "no name" producer. bad idea snoop. e-mail me for some ORIGINAL tracks.

  • angeldep

    How the fuck are you going to create a sequel to Doggystyle with Swizz Beats as the lead producer? It makes no sense.

  • nixnox

    This is either going to be a great idea, or a complete nightmare....

  • mono

    other great news!!!!! Doggpound: Dogg food 2 early 2011!!!! warren G: Regulate... G Funk era 2 spring 2011!!!

  • Gun de liro

    Man, fuck all these silly sequels. Rae did it successfully and now the flood gates are open. No originality, everyone just copying what the next man is doing. At this stage in your career if you feel you gotta make a sequel to an album that came out almost 20 years ago, just retire b.

    • Karl

      It wasn't Raekwon's idea orignally though. Twista release a new adrenaline rush successfully and i'm sure other rappers have pulled it off. I think Snoop needs another classic on par with the blue carpet treatment, r and g, Top Dogg and Doggystyle

  • fuck

    i love snoop , but this another case when rappers that feel that they are felling off put 2 on a classic album that they've done.

  • Jefrey

    This is gonna be awesome! I heard that he already has a new joint with Justin Bieber and Willy Nelson. Snoop is the GOAT!

  • Bob

    Again a sequel? Rappers are so desperate: do or die 2 hunger for more 2 extinction level event 2 liquid swords 2 war report 2 This is just so marketing shit: like remember doggystyle was so dope so doggystyle 2 will also be dope, i gotta buy it. Snoop you suck just like the rest of them oldtimers

    Snoop and LL...tztztz It's a thin line between love and hate, ya know. I bet they COULD do their best work in terms of skills. But I guess their lifestyle got in their way. Cube as well no matter how hard he pushes I am the west!! Love all of them though. No hard feelings

  • gavdude

    Leave the mic alone Snoop. I love you, but you haven't spit since '93. You're a celebrity now, go and enjoy your fortune.

  • Aymem

    hahahhahah very true!!! Seems like a desperate move!!! Why Do that? Unless...you have no other choice for album sales...He does have a new position @ priority...seems like someone talked him into this 1!!!

  • Snoop Wolf

    Wow a sequel to a classic album...how "unexpected". I would've NEVER seen this coming!

  • Aymen

    Swizz Beats is a joke...average talent. Why do rappers keep going to him? Hes not underground and hes not a real hit-maker! His style doesn't even match at all with Snoop! Work with Khalil or Dre you dumbass!!!

  • jack johnson

    aw hell no, snoop and swizz beats? thats just a disgrace to the name why do that?

  • Tony Yayo Is Gay

    This wack ass nigga did a video in candyland, enuff said

  • Anonymous

    Snoop, just stop. Honestly--stop it, you looking very desperate now.

  • Gods_Son23

    I think Snoop has more good music in him, and he also has a good album in him if he sticks to that hard shit. Half of The Blue Carpet Treatment was very good, and Protocol and I Wanna Rock from his recent album was banging.

  • Bickartoon Glorious Funk

    OOH-WEEE!!!! I'll be muthafuckin waitin' for it... but, Uncle Snoop, just tell me why Swizz Beatz!? i mean, he's great but, i'd like to hear Dre, Warren G, Daz... u kno'!

  • Anonymous

  • Alexander Zubarev

    It's definitely going to be a different album, I can tell you that.

  • T

    yea im glad im not the only one who sees it this way, this needs to be a bangin ass album or its just going to look stupid i doubt it matches the 1st one at all swizz is def gonna make or break this situation cus hes a hit and miss producer he has a bunch of shit i love but he also has a bunch i cant stand! cmon snoop u really need to think this one through so its right!

  • Mr Price

  • Haze SHK

    He should'nt have made it Doggystyle 2, its gonna be that snap and pop shit... Maybe he gonna surprise us?

  • MIKE FROM DETROIT

    ok it better be out before december 25th though

  • ODogg

    Snoop better get Dre and Daz to produce those cuts or else!! Swizz Beats?! GTFOH

  • jesterdxxl

    @problems/problema327... Not real talk I read your comment way to fast son how the fuck did you work out he had 27 years to plan a sequel???

  • Christopher English

    I loved Rae's and CNN's sequel.. but to say Doggystyle 2 and then mention Swizz... blasphemy...

    • BWS-Fish

      but everyone knows that Lloyd Banks -The Hunger For More 2 is gonna be the greatest sequel album ever!! that was me joking by the way

    • twoholla

      I co-sign with you homie...& with Dre's slooooow-work ethic...we'll be lucky to have at least one Dre track (one of his usual mid-tempo, piano- 1-2 stab, boring beat programming) beats on Doggystyle 2...out of all of the producers he could've picked...he selected Swizz...BIG FAIL ALREADY ON THAT ONE!!!

    • kenny ortiz

      yea i feel you. check out my new artist hes dope something like snoop mixed wit big pun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxWjjjDHLnY

  • CB

    Sorry, Snoop ain't shit without Dre producing him.

  • mike

    DRE BETTER BE ON AT LEAST 10 OF THOSE BEATS!!!!!

  • UNKL RUCK

    saw him at rock the bells 2 weeks ago in LA and this nigga shut that shit down! when he performed Murder Was the Case I wanted to cry, cuz all it did was remind of how ill Snoop USED to be. he did every song on Doggystyle and i think he realized that thats wat the fans want, the Doggystyle Snoop! i have a feeling this past rock the bells tour inspired Snoop to go back to that real hip hop shit hence why hes naming it Doggystyle 2

  • problems/problema327

    This is the stupidest shit i have heard in a long while..seriously snoop?u get swizz and his corny beats to take the place of Dre's,daz, and whoever worked on that classic so u can cash in on some sequel? wtf is going on? damn snoop leave that shit alone and if u really wanted to do a sequel to such a classic album you had 27 years to plan with dre a way to do it..instead u get that muppet baby beakman to lace u with some uninspired production..smh...

  • Bauce

    Snoop hasn't made a truly good album in decades it seems. Just the same old "minor hit" then R & B song then album. Its a lot of weight naming it Doggystyle 2. The original is certified classiic

  • 718rob

    Snoop, you made corny for this one. Really, really disappointed in you.

  • RIDDIMONYACASE

    i cant believe he naming the album that?! that's putting alot of pressure on himself...it has to be a classic or else!

  • DZZ

    I am way more excited for LIQUID SWORDS 2! GZA & RZA ARE MONSTERS IN THIS HIP-HOP GAME! I don't know if snoop can pull this off if he remakes his classic....hmmmm will be very very interesting.
