Snoop Dogg teased the album last June
In June of last year, Snoop Dogg posted an image of a conversation between himself and his mother to tease the upcoming album.
“I’m working on a gospel album moms and it sounds amazing,” he told his mother in the conversation. “Thank u for showing me how to live and to spread the word. Love u more today than I did yesterday.”
“Praise the Lord,” his mom responded. “You are very welcome. The more you share with others the more you will reap more benefits. The more the Lord will enlarge your territory and bless you indeed. I am so grateful to the Lord for you and how God is moving you in the direction to bless His people through the word of God.”
He also previewed a few tracks from the album that same day.
