Snoop Dogg Announces New Album 'Neva Left' Coming In May

By Carver Low

A few days ago, Snoop Dogg hopped on Instagram to show off some new music. He captioned the post “Neva left new Snoop Dogg coming soon the album.” Leave it to Snoop to make the most innocuous album announcement of all time. Now Snoop is down in Austin for South By Southwest, and he decided to share the month of the album’s release.

Despite being a seasoned 45 years old, nothing seems to be slowing the Long Beach emcee down. He released Coolaid last year, and is apparently going to release Neva Left less than a year after that album. He also released a collaborative album with his Dogg Pound brother Daz Dillinger that was slept on by way too many people.

Based on the snippet in Snoop’s first video, this will be a great album. Listen below, are y’all ready for another Snoop album? (Read More)

Travis Scott Announces New Label 'Cactus Jack Records'

By Trevor Smith

Travis Scott just shared his Birds Eye View tour dates, but that isn't the only announcement the Houston rapper has planned for today. In a new interview with Numero, Travis has revealed that he's launching a brand new label called Cactus Jack Records.

"I’m not doing it to have financial control over my music," he says of the idea behind the new label. "I want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities. I want to do for them what happened to me, but better. By better I mean no bullshit. No lying to the artists about album release dates or the budgets of videos and albums."

Travis has been signed to EPIC since 2012. It's unclear if Cactus Jack will be an imprint under the label.

The interview also features a quote about Travis' first encounter with Kanye West, who has become a regular collaborator of his.

"Kanye, he’s my buddy," said Travis. "When I got the chance to meet him I was so nervous. He listened to my music and thought it was cool. Two weeks later he sent me an email and I found myself on the way to Paris to take part in his Yeezus album.”

Scott also made sure to praise some artists outside of the genre of rap, expressing his fandom fro Black Sabbath, Calvin Harris, James Blake, and Tame Impala. In general, he's making an effort not to limit himself to being a "rapper."

"What the fuck is a rapper?" he says. "I dunno. A country singer, it doesn’t mean anything anymore. No one is a country singer unless he wants to get stuck in one single genre. Me, I sing, I rap, I do beats, I sometimes make videos. Labels piss me off. "
