Snoop dropped the bombshell during a recent appearance on Stephen A. Smith’s Know Mercy podcast, where he revealed the project is called Missionary and is due to be finished in November, although it’s unclear how soon it will be released.

Next month will mark 29 years since Snoop and Dre joined forces on the former’s first album Doggystyle, which extended the winning partnership they formed on 1992’s The Chronic — to record-breaking sales.

“I’ma tell you this, you’re the first one to hear this: me and Dr. Dre have been working on an album for the past two months,” Snoop said at the 34:30 mark.

“And it’ll be done in November. It’s produced by Dr. Dre, it’s our 30th anniversary to Doggystyle. And the name of the album is Missionary.”

When Smith asked: “Why that name?” Snoop replied: “The first album was Doggystyle,” prompting a roar of laughter from the sports personality. “That is beautiful. I love it, man,” Smith commented.

Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have dropped numerous teasers about new music plans in recent months. In August, the legendary duo were spotted in the studio with Eminem, who posted a photo of their session on Twitter with the caption: “just a few bros..hangin out.”

Weeks later, more photos of Snoop and Dre’s studio reunion surfaced, showing the longtime collaborators sharing a laugh while seemingly getting down to serious business. Diddy also swung by the session and revealed Dre coached him through a vocal take, calling it a “dream come true.”

“[Dre and I] are cooking up a little something,” Snoop told ET at the premiere of his Day Shift movie in August. “I don’t wanna talk about it too much, but we’re back together again. It’s been 30 years since we worked on a record, and we’re doin’ something, we’re workin’ on something.”

Eminem, 50 Cent & Dr. Dre Reunite On ‘Curtain Call 2’ Collab ‘Is This Love (’09)’

Eminem, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre have reunited on an unearthed song called “Is This Love (’09),” from Slim Shady’s newly-released compilation album Curtain Call 2.

As the title suggests, the track was originally recorded in 2009 — the same year Eminem made his post-Encore comeback with Relapse — and finds the close-knit trio connecting for a playful song about romantic and sexual infatuation.

“Girl, I’m diggin’ your whole MO/Give me a go, you’re throwin’ innuendo/Keep sendin’ me smoke signals/Everything’s movin’, spinning in slow M-O-T-I-O-N,” Em raps over bouncy production from Dr. Dre, Mark Batson and Trevor Lawrence Jr.

50 Cent, meanwhile, channels his inner Slim Shady with a rapid-fire, acronym-riddled verse full of shock value. Judging by at least one lyric, 50 recorded his rhymes much later than ’09.

“I kill a bitch with a potato peeler for the skrilla/I’m finna skin a sinner, dick robbed like Bruce Jenner,” he spits, referencing Caitlyn Jenner’s 2015 gender transition.

“Is This Love (’09)” is one of three new songs on Curtain Call 2 alongside “From the D 2 the LBC” featuring Snoop Dogg and the CeeLo Green-assisted “The King and I,” which also appears on the Elvis soundtrack.

Curtain Call 2‘s primary purpose, though, is serving as a highlight reel of Eminem’s decorated catalog since the release of his first greatest hits album, Curtain Call: The Hits, in 2005.

Dr Dre in the hospital

Dr. Dre says he’s ‘doing great’ after being hospitalized in ICU for apparent brain aneurysm

Dr. Dre is recovering from a possible brain aneurysm.

In an Instagram message posted on Tuesday night, the hip-hop icon said he’s “doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team.” Dre, born Andre Young, thanked “the great medical professionals” at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he’s currently hospitalized.

According to TMZ, the music mogul was rushed by ambulance to the ICU on Monday after suffering a brain aneurysm. The news was confirmed on Twitter by Los Angeles Times reporter Richard Winton.

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to a representative for Dre, but did not immediately receive a response.

The 55-year-old Dre — considered an architect of the West Coast rap scene with his work with the legendary group N.W.A., as a solo artist, as co-founder of the infamous Death Row Records and as producer of work by the likes of Tupac Shakur, Eminem and Snoop Dogg — is stable and lucid, according to TMZ, while fellow rapper L.L. Cool J offered a positive prognosis on Twitter.

However, doctors apparently don’t know what caused the bleeding and are running tests, per TMZ. A brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain and the severity can vary, according to Mayo Clinic.

Well wishes for the music legend have poured in on social media.

Ice Cube, Dre’s longtime friend and former running mate in N.W.A., asked for “love and prayers.” Cube’s son, actor O’Shea Jackson Jr., tweeted, “Me and my family are with you.” He also seemed optimistic about the entrepreneur’s condition.

Snoop Dogg shared a video from one of his many performances with Dre, writing, “Get well… we need [you]…”

Missy Elliott, G-Eazy, LeBron James and more stars also reacted.

Dre, who in addition to his considerable music credits was the co-founder of headphone company Beats (since acquired by Apple in a $3 billion deal), is in the middle of a contentious divorce with estranged wife Nicole Young.

Earlier on Tuesday, TMZ reported that Young filed legal documents proving the rapper has plenty of funds — specifically, $262 million in Apple stock and cash — in order to pay her to “maintain the status quo” of her lifestyle. She is seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $5 million for attorneys fees. Young is also asking the judge to reject their prenuptial agreement she signed in 1996. There is a hearing set for Wednesday on the issues, but given Dre’s health, it will likely be postponed.
