Clearly, it must be the ganja or Uncle Snoop must still be Ego Trippin as reports have shown that the West Coast rapper will be shedding his name in place of Ni**arachi for the upcoming compilation album Bacc To Tha Chuuch Vol, 1.

Serving as the sequel to 2007’s Welcome 2 Tha Chuuch, the upcoming release will be produced entirely by the rapper, excluding one track which was intended for his last album Ego Trippin’. Daz, Kurupt, Ray J., Snoop and others are expected to be on the album.

Aside from the old school barrel of rappers, this release will also serve as a launching pad for new artists as Snoop will place new MCs such as Hustle Boyz, Tha Raw Doggz, the TC’s and singer Chris Starr into the spotlight. This goes to show that even the old school is still willing to usher in some new talent for those that continue to feel that they are only grumpy old men.

The Dogg will also be serving up his own batch as he is set to release his tenth album in the form of Malice in Wonderland. So far, the likes of Dr. Dre and Pharell are set to leave their presence felt on the next solo joint from the Doggfather.

Snoop has recently been leaving his mark in music as he collaborated with Nipsey Hussle for the track “Gangsta’s Life.” With the re-release of Dr. Dre’s debut, now titled The Chronic: Re-Lit & From the Vault, fans will be able to hear vintage Snoop on bonus cuts such as “Poor Young Dave” and “Touchdown.”

Man, it must be good to be Snoop because there is no other artist that could pull such a moniker as Ni**arachi and actually run with it, but maybe that’s what makes the West Coast veteran such a force in the game. Or maybe it’s just the ganja.
