Snoop Dogg is pounding his new LP without the help of his friends. The rapper intends to go solo so that his fans can "feel" him. This decision comes upon two factors, fear of bail and Amy Winehouse.
For the former reason, Snoop took it from his experience when guest artist agreed to do everything with him but bail a show for another job responsibility. "You're left one-legged," he said. "Now it's time to show artists. Can you handle the whole weight? Do you got enough to do it on your own? Did you put yourself in a position where people love you for you - or for being associated with people? This record, I'm seriously ego-tripping like, 'I don't want you on my album. Nah, I don't need you.' "
Meanwhile, Snoop is also amazed by Winehouse's effort that took the whole "Back to Black" album by herself. "[When I'm listening], I'm learning who she is," he said about the British singer.
Though taking this project by himself, Snoop trusts Pharrell Williams to back him up in the production. He intends to name this one project "Ego Trippin'".
In other news, Snoop is not granted the permission to enter Australia and has 28 days to stand up against the decision. He was supposed to co-host MTV Australia Video Music Awards this Sunday.
