Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg have teamed up once again and stretched their longstanding alliance beyond the studio, as they now plan to release a new drink together.
Over the weekend, the pair unveiled a stylish trailer for their latest product, “Gin & Juice,” showcasing them portraying two gangsters reminiscent of Vincent and Jules from Quentin Tarantino’s beloved 1994 film, Pulp Fiction.
Based on a clip shared by the legendary team’s joint Twitter account, the drink will come in four flavors: Apricot, Citrus, Melon and Passionfruit.
The new beverage is inspired by one of their most iconic songs from early in their careers, “Gin and Juice,” which was released in 1993 as the second single from Snoop’s debut album, Doggystyle, produced by Dr. Dre.
The song peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since been certified platinum by the RIAA. It is widely considered as one of the greatest hip hop songs of all time and has been referenced and sampled by numerous artists.
The duo have also collaborated on several other hits, such as “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang,” “Still D.R.E.,” and “The Next Episode.”
According to HipHopDX1, multiple ‘Gin & Juice’ trademarks were filed last year by a company called Defiant Ones, LLC, which shares its name with the 2017 mini-series about the alliance between Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
The same entity also filed a claim over “Vodka & Juice By Dre and Snoop.” Considering their collaborative social media account is called ByDreAndSnoop, which doesn’t specify any one product, more items by the two might be in the works.
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are also working together on a new album together titled Missionary, which Snoop described as “masterful” and praised Dre for using his voice “like an instrument.”
The release date and details of the new drink and the new album are yet to be announced, but fans can expect nothing but quality and innovation from the two hip hop legends.
