Listen to Dâm-Funk's Collaboration with Snoop Dogg
- Words: Glenn Jackson
It's a day we thought would likely never come to XLR8R, when we'd be compelled to feature none other than West Coast rap mega-icon Snoop Dogg. But the stars have aligned thanks to G-funk stalwart and longtime XLR8R favorite Dâm-Funk's collaboration with the world-famous rapper on "Faden Away," a new tune that is currently available to stream in full. Appearing on the Stones Throw label's SoundCloud page, "Faden Away" features a characteristically slippery and funk-laden beat from Dâm-Funk, on top of which Snoop Dogg unravels a set of quasi-emotional verses and a particularly old-school-sounding chorus. No info on an eventual release of the song or any sort of ongoing project behind the collab has been revealed, so for now, we'll have to simply give "Faden Away" a few spins below, and revel in the fact that Snoop Dogg somehow finally made it to the pages of XLR8R.
