Snoop Dogg has unveiled two new songs, “Top Down” and “Love Around the World,” on The Return of Doggy Style Records, a 30-track SoundCloud compilation from the rapper’s recently revived label.
“Love Around the World” opens the mixtape and finds the MC cruising over a beat of sultry synths and ominous pianos, weaving luxurious lines like “I’m smooth like suede with a touch of velour / On the rocks, Ciroc, glass and I pour / Snoop Dogg is the shit, now get your ass on the floor.”
“Top Down,” meanwhile, boasts a retro soul vibe with dusty snares, a charming vocal loop and a delicate, extended hook from October. Snoop again sounds effortless and carefree over the sparse beat, cheekily boasting, “Got a car full of gas, but no place to go.”
The Return of Doggy Style Records features a slew of artists and marks the first release since the rapper relaunched his long defunct Doggy Style Records earlier this month. Not long after, Snoop announced plans to release new music — potentially a whole album — in July. He’s also set to head out on tour with Wiz Khalifa starting July 20th in West Palm Beach, Florida.
