Ghostface Killah’s Lost Tapes will be dropping on October 5th, just a little over a month from now. The tracks are a collection of unreleased songs done over the years. The lead single, “Saigon Velour” consisting of Ghostface along with Snoop Dogg, E-40, and La The Darkman came out just a few weeks ago. This marks the first time Ghostface has ever appeared on a song with Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg’s relationship with the Wu-Tang Clan music wise dates back to 2000 when he appeared on “Conditioner” from The W album. On that track he was accompanied by ODB, GZA, and Inspectah Deck.

The next time Snoop would collaborate with a Wu member was with Method Man from the 2004 album Tical 0: The Prequel. The track was called “We Some Dogs” which also included Redman and produced by Mr. Porter. Member of Eminem’s group D12 and his right hand man. The two would team up again, this time with Erick Sermon on the 2013 song “Let Me Explain” which was tied to Kevin Hart’s concert film of the same title. It served as a reunion for Snoop, Method Man, and Kevin Hart who had worked together on the movie Soul Plane.

Snoop then finally linked up with Wu member Raekwon on “1,2, 1,2” from Raekwon’s 2015 Fly International Luxurious Art. The track was produced by Scoop DeVille who had worked on several Snoop projects prior. Snoop then reunited with Method Man on “Mount Kushmore” along with Redman and B-Real. The track served as a single from Snoop’s 2017 album, Neva Left.

Snoop Dogg has been in the game for close to thirty years at this point. His skill set and versatility have given him the ability to mesh well with hip hop artists from different regions and eras. He is one of the few artists who made an appearance on any of the Wu-Tang group albums outside of their immediate camp. Through the years beyond his appearance on the Wu-Tang W he has forged a strong relationship with the members, especially Method Man.
