NEW YORK, NY -- KOCH Records and Doggy Style Records announce the release of "The Big Squeeze," a new compilation album presented by Snoop Dogg. The album features up-and-coming West Coast acts Westurn Union (Damani, Soopafly, and Bad Lucc), The Warzone, Terrace Martin, Azuré, and will be released on Tuesday April 24th, 2007. Snoop produced 16 of the tracks on the album and is featured on 12 tracks.
Snoop weighs in, "I basically wanted to produce these tracks from up and coming West Coast acts. I see a new West Coast and it's right here -- and it's brought to you by the King of the West Coast."
After 15 years in the game, 9 albums to his credit, 15+ million units sold worldwide, few rappers can match Snoop's track record. His current hit album, "Blue Carpet Treatment," has re-cemented his status as THE premier rap icon of the West. On the heels of a sold-out European tour, Bigg Snoop Dogg continues to bring the heat with "The Big Squeeze."
This latest collection of bangers from his label Doggy Style Records features an all-star roster of the Best-in-the-West, featuring tracks by Snoop, Kurupt, Warzone, Westurn Union, Chuck, Terrace Martin, Azuré, Ray J and more!
