Snoop Dogg drops Doggumentary early on MySpace?
The old school yet tech-savvy Snoop Dogg is making news again after deciding to release his much anticipated Doggumentary album on MySpace two days prior to its official release date.
No word yet on why he chose MySpace over other social media platforms which seem more popular nowadays, but Snoop seems to be really making good use of the technology age and the online culture. He has been included in branded virtual goods, video games, social gaming tie-ins and the launching of his previous album, Malice N Wonderland, became a Ustream Reality TV show. He has also been releasing several tracks from the Doggumentary album via his Facebook page and his Twitter page in a series dubbed “Puff Puff Pass Tuesdays”, which seems to have been inspired by Kanye West’s “G.O.O.D. Fridays” series.
Doggumentary is being considered a conceptual follow-up to Snoop’s classic debut album, Doggystyle, released in 1993. It features other top artistes such as R. Kelly, Young Jeezy, The Gorillaz, John Legend, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and many others.
