Following recent visits by American R&B superstar, Alicia Keys as well as Senegalese rap superstar, Akon to the island to work on new music, Snoop Dogg has announced that he will be travelling to Jamaica in the near future to record a new single. The announcement was made via Snoop Dogg’s official YouTube channel this past Monday as he honored what would have been the 67th birthday of late Reggae legend, Bob Marley.
