Exclaim - 60 Based on rating 6/10
Living in a world where the good of humanity is consistently being challenged, many people have felt a need to either find guidance in a higher spirit, or simply cleanse away the daily woes. For Snoop Dogg, a veteran in the rap game and a man who's lived several lives, seeking God seems to have been his answer.
Serving as his 16th studio album, Bible Of Love has twice as many tracks and 30 featured artists. Rounding up gospel artists (The Clark Sisters, Mary Mary, Marvin Sapp, 3rd Generation), R&B singers (K-Ci, Faith Evans, Mali Music) and the occasional rapper (Jazze Pha, Daz Dillinger), the album focuses on pairing heavily Christian-based vocals with various personal sermons… and the very rare Snoop Dogg verse..
Snoop Dogg's career has felt like the result of an escalation of dares—some of which have paid off surprisingly well. On 2008's Ego Trippin, the veteran G-funker reinvented himself as an Auto-Tuned grown-n'-sexy crooner; on 2013's Reincarnated, he renamed himself Snoop Lion and cut reggae-influenced tracks with producer Diplo. Now, with Bible of Love, he's attempted his biggest gambit yet: an actual, honest-to-goodness gospel album.
