Doggy Style Records owner Snoop Dogg was grinning from ear to ear as he announced plans for his new album. Snoop Dogg, aka Calvin Broadus, will partner with his American Idol namesake, Anoop Dogg, aka Anoop Desai, for his latest piece of work.
“I’m happy to announce mah latest venture-izzle with mah indo homey, Anoop D-O-double-G, fo shizzle.”
The album will be titled “Desis and Doggs not allowed”. Anoop Desai says he got the idea for the name of the album from a popular Bollywood flick.
“When I was young I used to watch a lot of Amitabh Bachchan movies. In one of this movies Amitabh Bachcan bursts into a club where no Indians and dogs are allowed and beats up the villain. This album signifies me bursting into mainstream music.”
The album will be released jointly in India and the US in October, a first of its kind. Snoop Dogg had previously worked on the music album for a Bollywood movie with popular Bollywood star, Akshay Kumar.
A representative for Snoop Dogg says he loves Bollywood and looks forwards to continuing exploring Indian markets. In the music video titled “Chivda and Champagne”, Snoop will don traditional Gujarati clothes to honor Anoop’s traditions.
As for the chemistry between the two.
“He’s cool,” said Anoop, “I like hanging out with Snoop Dogg. “
And what about Snoop’s troubles with the law and penchant for marijuana. Says Snoop about Anoop,
“Naah man, he cool but he aint doin that shit. He scared of his momma.”
