RAPPER Snoop Dogg is currently recording a reggae album, according to the entertainment.iafrica.com website.


The website reports that Snoop is working with high-profile producer Diplo, who has worked with big names like Beyoncé, MIA and Usher.


"Snoop Dogg is an icon, man; he’s bigger than the music. What we’re doing is a reggae record," Diplo told MTV recently.


"It’s all reggae and he’s singing and he’s doing an awesome job. And I never knew it, but he had his heart in every song."


Diplo added that he and Snoop have started work on 18 tracks but took a break from recording. They expect to resume some time this month, he said.


"We’re going to get back into the production of it next month, and I’m really proud of that record. It’s the first record I’ve ever executive produced and his crew is amazing," said Diplo.


One of the giants of gangsta rap, Snoop Dogg is best known for hard-hitting projects like The Chronic and Murder She Wrote, both produced by Dr Dre.


He has performed twice in Jamaica, at Sashi in 2000 and at Reggae Sumfest the following year.
