The Dogg days are not over. Snoop Lion returns to being Snoop Dogg on “Let the Bass Go,” his family-friendly contribution to DreamWorks’ animated comedy Turbo. The father of three also voices a “slick-talking, slow-walking” snail named Smoove Move in the film.
“It’s something upbeat that everyone in the house can enjoy,” Snoop told Rolling Stone. “I’m on my old-school rap style there: we took sounds from the ’80s like an 808 bass to give it that ‘Planet Rock’ and ‘Going Back to Cali’ feel. It was about paying homage, while at the same time taking the movie to the next level.”
Turbo arrives in theaters on July 17 starring Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Peña, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Samuel L. Jackson.
