Snoop Dogg releases a new song and video for “Kush Ups” featuring Wiz Khalifa, off of his upcoming album, COOLAID. Aside from “Kush Ups” and Snoop’s performance of “Fireworks” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week, the only thing we know to expect from COOLAID is a classic Snoop Dogg hip-hop feel since this is his first rap album in five years. The album is set to release in July, via Doggy Style Records, and just by the first couple songs we can tell it’s going to be a hit.
The two stoner gods get together on “Kush Ups” for a classic Golden Era-type beat and feel that will have everyone nodding their heads. Every time Snoop and Wiz collab on a song, it’s always a hit and after hearing “Kush Ups”, this time is definitely no different.
Not only do the two stoners make bangin’ music together, they also know how to make the best weed with their exclusive cannabis lines, Leafs By Snoop and Khalifa Kush.

The legendary west coast dog-father returns with his first true blue straight Hip Hop album in many years with the upcoming “CoolAid” album dropping in July through his very own Doggy Style Records distributed by Ca$h Machine/SPV across the UK and Europe (The German based label that gave us The Game’s “Documentary 2/2.5” albums).
The first single features Snoop’s ‘nephew’ and “puff, puff, pass” compadre, Wiz Khalifa, and is also a great prelude to their upcoming US “The High Road Summer 2016 Tour” together. The single was produced by KJ Conteh and contains a sample of “I Wanna Rock” by Luther Campbell aka Luke and the Dan Folger-directed video for “Kush Ups” premiered via Merry Jane, who are also promoting the Snoop/Wiz tour.
