How cool is that! The legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, under the name Snoopzilla, teams us with DāM-FunK in order to create a new duo called 7 Days Of Funk that makes us reminisce about the good ol’ days of boogie and early 80s synth-funk!
According to Dam-Funk the collaboration was more than successful: “Snoop knew what I was thinking without me having to articulate it. That’s how you know when you gel artistically with someone,”…“These beats were made for him and he laid down some of the smoothest harmonies and melodies I’ve ever heard. It’s hip-hop, but you can also hear what we grew up on, from Zapp to Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King and Patrice Rushen.”
The accompanying video for their first single “Faden Away” definitely brings us back that kind of music Dam- Funk describes visually: Jheri curl wigs, a dookie rope gold chain and a grandiose BMW emblem on it too, keytaurs and all the aesthetics that director Hank DeMaio represented so well at this house party.
The album is set for release December 10, 2013 on Stones Throw Records. You can pre-order the 7 Days Of Funk LP via iTunes.
