There are no, ifs, ands, or buts about it — Snoop Dogg is a legend and friend to damn near everyone. Whether he’s connecting with Matthew McConaughey for The Beach Bum, teaming up with Martha Stewart to whip up some meals, or holding it down on the mic as he has for years, there’s seemingly no stone that Snoop has left unturned. So much so that it feels as if he’s simply spinning a wheel of things he has yet to do and systematically checking the boxes one by one.

Now, the Doggfather has unveiled some of his upcoming plans, which happen to include another long-overdue collaboration between himself and the legendary Willie Nelson, following up the release of “My Medicine” back in 2009. “We got a song coming out in a couple of weeks,” confirms Snoop, speaking with Ebro Darden of Beats 1. “That’s my big brother, Willie Nelson. The reason we’re gonna make this record is because black and white matters right now. The love we have for each other.”
Given the reputation of each party, expect this one to be an instant anthem for the modern marijuana connoisseur — even if the subject matter might not be bud-related per se. And while that’s certainly cause to be excited, Snoop also expressed interest in holding it down for Timbaland and Swizz Beatz’ Verzuz series, though it’s been a minute since we’ve seen movement on that particular front. “I need to get into a Verzuz battle,” he teases. “The only person I think they would put me up against is LL Cool J, but I’m scared of LL so I don’t want that. I don’t want no part of LL Cool J. Take my name off the ballot, I’m out!”
