‘From Gangster To Gospel To Redemption’
Snoop Dogg And Kirk Franklin Team Up For ‘From Gangster To Gospel To Redemption’ Web Series
In January, Snoop Dogg fans were shocked when he announced he was going to make a gospel album. The “Bible of Love” when it came out received great reviews and Snoop enlisted gospel as well as R&B artists that we love. According to BET, Patti LaBelle, Tye Tribbett, Fred Hammond and more lent their voices to make this a success.
This album sat at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums for six weeks. Snoop is now moving forward and decided to do a three-part YouTube series titled “From Gangster To Gospel To Redemption,” with Kirk Franklin. In episode one, the two of them talk about faith, family and moments of their past.
Franklin spoke about the first time he ever met Snoop at BET’s Soul Train Awards and received a gem from the rapper. Snoop said, “95 per cent of the gangster rappers were born and raised in a church, and the first style of music that they heard or were introduced to was church music—was gospel music. That’s their upbringing. That’s why you notice when every gangsta rapper wins an award, what’s the first thing they say?”
