Ego Trippin' is the ninth studio album by Long Beach, California-based rapper Snoop Dogg. The album is scheduled to be released March 11, 2008. The album was originally scripted to featured no guests and showcase Snoop Dogg only, hence the title "Ego Trippin'". However, Snoop Dogg proved this concept untrue as he has scheduled tracks with the likes of Charlie Wilson, among others.
Snoop Dogg originally confirmed that Pharrell, Nelly and Charlie Wilson would appear on a track entitled, "Feet Don't Fail Me Now," and that he also would like to work with Bono, Madonna and Mick Jagger as well. However, "Feet Don't Fail Me Now" and none of the collaborations would make the final album cut except Charlie Wilson' features.
Collaborations with DJ Quik, Raphael Saadiq, Teddy Riley and Too $hort are also scheduled for the album. Snoop Dogg also spoke on working with Whitey Ford for a country song called "Johnny Cash". However, the track's title was changed to "My Medicine" with Whitey Ford playing guitar. Another track with Charlie Wilson and The Gap Band called "Can't Say Goodbye", was also confirmed for the album. Snoop Dogg reminisced on the track stating, "This song makes me want to cry every time I hear it. It is a reflection of my life and how I have grown as not only an artist but also a man - it is about me staying true to where I came from while having to accept where I am in my life today, it's deep."
