After announcing a new album was in the works earlier this month, Snoop Dogg is back with the official cover art for his 15th studio album, Neva Left, which serves as the follow-up to 2016’s Coolaid. The inimitable Doggfather took to Instagram to share the cover art and also reiterated the project is expected to arrive on May 19.
“The evolution of the dogg,” he wrote. “new album #NevaLeft comin May 19!! preorder now (link in bio).”
Shot by photographer Chi Modu, the cover art repurposes a classic photograph from the unforgettable Doggystyle era and finds the legendary MC posted up in front of a highway sign that appropriately reads “East California 187.” The album is now available for pre-order, and comes with the instant-grat track “Mount Kushmore” featuring Redman, Method Man, and B-Real. Check out the cover art above.

The spotlight is on the West Coast tonight with the Hip Hop world buzzing for whatever Kendrick Lamar has in store, but even though the good kid is carrying the torch, don’t think the legends are slowing down.
He teased the LP a few weeks ago with a preview of new music.
The Doggfather is also working on a Coolaid movie after feeling the album wasn’t given the attention it deserved. It debuted at #40 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling just over 11,000 units upon its release in July.
Snoop continues to push music, releasing the “Super Crip” music video just last month. He’s also working to help other artists, including October London and Jooba Loc, build their platforms as well as serving as a brand ambassador for Tanqueray gin.
