Snoop has your back throughout the game to make sure you hit it big, including helping you invest in real estate and make money outside of the rap game.The game was created by Snoop's Digital Dogg gaming and animation imprint, and has a Grand Theft Auto art-vibe.

"Speedboats, baby, in Nikki Beach/Waves in my ears, smokin' weed (Wait, wait)," he rhymes. "Whippin' through the sand in a Jeep (Wait, wait)/All because of what I did on beats, baby/Life's sweet, baby, iced out, baby/You just go get ready, we go out, baby/Long time lookin' for the bounce, yeah/OZ had the bounce, yeah."

"Ayy, shawty with the long text, I don't talk, ayy/Shawty with the long legs, she don't walk, ayy/Last year I kept it on the tucked, ayy 2020, I came to fuck it up, yeah," he rhymes. Khaled confirmed in an IG post that "Greece" and "Popstar" will appear on his new album, which will serve as the follow-up to his 2019 release, Father of Asahd. That album, which features the Grammy-winning single "Higher" featuring Nipsey Hussle and John Legend, reached platinum status in May.Drake, on the other hand, revealed his new album is coming out this summer and gave some details on the project. "So, last album, I went high volume. It did two sides, 20-something songs, which is a lot of songs. This album, I'll probably make it a more realistic offering, something more concise," Drizzy said.
