Snoop Dogg Secures Deal to Release Two New Albums
American Song Contest host Snoop Dogg has secured a deal with former Apple executive Larry Jackson as part of Jackson’s new music company gamma. As part of the deal, Snoop is set to release two new albums.
Snoop Dogg Signs Deal with New Company Gamma
Larry Jackson reportedly has $1 billion in capital to start his new company gamma. The company’s first projects reportedly include two upcoming albums from Snoop Dogg, as well as distributing Death Row Records’ music catalog. That includes Snoop’s debut album Doggystyle and projects by Dr. Dre and 2Pac.
Snoop bought Death Row Records last year and subsequently removed its music from streaming services before releasing it on TikTok last month. In addition to music, gamma is also reportedly developing podcasts with the Shade Room, as well as movies with A24.
“It made sense for two Black men to come together to change the face of the industry,” Snoop told Bloomberg of his deal with Jackson. “I didn’t want to partner with a regular company because they respect me and fear me so much, they wouldn’t wanna give me ideas.”

Snoop Is Releasing New Music with Dr. Dre
Last month, Snoop teased on Instagram that he would be releasing new music with Dr. Dre this summer. The rapper previously shared that the pair was working on a new album together called Missionary, marking the 30th anniversary of Doggystyle.
The album, which marked Snoop’s debut in 1993, was produced by Dr. Dre. Snoop had previously appeared on Dre’s 1992 debut album The Chronic. Snoop shared last year that he and Dre were working on the new album, which he said would be done in November 2022.
Snoop is also gearing up to go on tour with Wiz Khalifa, with dates kicking off in July. Other guests on the tour are Too $hort, Warren G, Berner, and DJ Drama. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, March 10.
