Gangster rapper, Snoop Dogg, has been confirmed as one of the artists to perform at this year’s Stellar Awards in March on the same stage as gospel giants Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Tye Tribbett, and a reunited Mary Mary.
Snoop first hinted at recording a gospel album last year. In a Beats 1 interview he said, “It’s always been on my heart. I just never got around to it because I always be doing ‘gangsta’ business or doing this or doing that. I just felt like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now.”
Now the rapper is set to release his inspirational album, ‘Bible of Love’, on March 16. It features appearances including Faith Evans, Tye Tribbett, Rance Allen and the Clark Sisters.
The first single off the album, ‘Words Are Few’, features B Slade, formerly known as Tonéx.
Having already dropped 5 of the album’s songs on BET’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration in early February where he performed with Evans and Tribbett, Snoop’s next gospel stop is to perform his ‘Bible of Love’ songs at the star-studded Stellar Awards.
He’ll be in good company! Other performers on the night include Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell as the formidable Mary Mary, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Travis Greene, Tye Tribbett, Anthony Brown & group therAPy, Kierra Sheard, KeKe Wyatt, Jonathan McReynolds, Tasha Page-Lockhart, Todd Dulaney, Koryn Hawthorne and Ricky Dillard & New G, as well as others. This year’s host is gospel superstar, Kirk Franklin.
