Fresh off the announcement of his partnership with GAP, Kanye West found himself in a studio on Friday (June 26) with none other than Dr. Dre – and Snoop Dogg, the latter was on hand to secretly document it all.
Ye and Dre have reportedly been working on the sequel to Ye’s 2019 album Jesus Is King and Snoop can be found in the back of the studio, narrating the recording session. “Kanye West got some hot music. Shhhhh,” Snoop whispers. “Kanye West got some hot shit. Only I can get exclusive footage. Shut up. Kanye West got some hot shit. It’s finna come out. Dr. Dre touched it.”
Snoop’s video falls right in line with Kanye’s tweets shared on Friday (June 26) where he apologized to Dre for spilling a drink on the carpet during the recording session. “IM SORRY DOCTOR DRE I SPILT THESE THREE DROPS OF ORANGE JUICE MIXED WITH UUUUUUM WHILE WE WERE FINISHING OUR FIRST PROJECT,” Yeezy said.

Snoop’s involvement in the project is an interesting one. Back in 2018, the D-O-Double-G routinely found himself dissing West for his affiliation with Donald Trump, saying that the Chicago producer and fashion mogul had been “brainwashed” by Trump and was lacking the support of a strong Black woman in his life after his mother, Dr. Donda West, died in 2007.
The Long Beach legend added fuel to the flame when he suggested that Drake had slept with Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian-West but in October 2018, all heads seemed to cool. Ye was spotted rocking a Snoop Dogg T-shirt and the Doggystyle OG appeared to have forgiven him. “Forgiveness is everything,” Snoop said of the gesture.
With Dre’s involvement for Jesus Is King II, it completes a mission Kanye has set out to achieve since he started producing. “I used to spend all my time trying to make my beats be mixed as good as Dr. Dre, who knew all I had to do was do an album for God and then Dr. Dre would start mixing my beats,” he told a Sunday Service crowd in 2019. “Spend your time on God and he will handle the rest.”
