Hip-hop great Snoop Dogg finds an unlikely collaborator in "The Office" star Craig Robinson for the "This Is the End" soundtrack "Take Yo Panties Off". The two artists team up for the only original record in the music compilation of the comedy film starring Robinson, among a male-dominated cast.
Snoop brings his hip-hop persona back from temporary hibernation in this new tune, something he put on hold when he dabbled in reggae music in his latest album "Reincarnated". He engages in a short dialogue with Robinson in the intro before dropping his smooth rhymes in the sexy rap verses meshed with Robinson's sensuous vocals.
"What is a king without a queen?/ What is the ding without the ding-aling?" Snoop asks in one of the lines, injecting some humor into the lyrics to match the funny theme of the movie. Robinson then makes the sensual plea to the ladies, telling them to "take 'em off, take 'em off, take 'em off!"
"This Is the End" is a flick about celebrities who get trapped in James Franco's house during the apocalypse. Besides Robinson and Franco, the movie, written and directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, also stars Jonah Hill, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna and Emma Watson. The soundtrack album, which includes songs from KRS-One, Cypress Hill, and Whitney Houston, will come out simultaneously with the movie on June 12.
