Reports are circulating that Snoop Dogg has offered his new buddy a chance to rap a verse, which was then taken seriously.
New buddies, David Beckham and Snoop Dogg are finding each other more interesting. After the soccer star appeared on Snoop's reality show, 'Father Hood', and tied a deal to launch a slipper business with him, he has now agreed to rap on Snoop's new album.
An unnamed source had told The People magazine that Snoop offered Beckham to contribute a verse, which was then taken seriously. "Snoop thought it'd be a laugh and David is going to give it a real go," the source said. "They are huge names so the song's bound to be a hit-even if it's no good."
Should the reports are true, then the Beckham-featuring track will be included in Snoop's ninth studio album, 'Ego Trippin'' which will be released on March 11. However, Snoop previously was quoted as saying that he doesn't want to have any featured guest in this album because he wants to have an 'ego trippin''. He said, "This record, I'm seriously ego-tripping like, 'I don't want you on my album. Nah, I don't need you.' "
The album has spawned a lead single called 'Sensual Seduction' which is also titled 'Sexual Eruption' in the explicit version. The music video for the single had been premiered in November, presenting him in a retro look, complete with his singing girls trio.
