Snoop Dogg releasing lullaby versions of his greatest hits

Snoop's new album is set for release on December 6.

Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg is releasing lullaby version of all his greatest hits.

The 48-year-old rapper has flexed his creative muscled into several different genres in the past including gospel, reggae, and funk, but he's now adding another album to his long list of experimental projects.

Snoop has put together a record full of lullaby tracks aimed at infants.

The unexpected album is being released in partnership with Rockabye Baby! Music, who are known for making lullaby instrumentals of various artists, including Drake, Eminem, and Kanye West.

The album is set for release on December 6, and a vinyl version was released last week on November's Record Store Day, on Black Friday.

While Snoop’s past image doesn’t scream family entertainment

— particularly songs like 1993’s “Gin & Juice” where he raps about sipping on alcohol while enjoying marijuana

— it seems the hip-hop legend doesn’t think it will hold him back as he enters the children’s music market.

Meanwhile, Snoop recently said he isn't interested in record sales, because he cares more about making music than making money.

Asked what keeps him "hyped" about making music, Snoop said: "I love the way that good music feels. Even if it ain't mine, I just love how that s*** feels.

"But when it's mine it feels even better because I'm able to do it. I've made projects before that weren't good, but they felt good to me. And that's all I give a f*** about.

"I don't care about this sold eight million, 100,000, 22,000 or 17. Who cares? If you ain't doing it for the feeling, you're doing it for the wrong reasons. You should never be doing it to make money or become famous. That isn't what this game was built on.

"Anyone who's ever been successful or a megastar? They love this s**t first and foremost, more than anything."
