Snoop Dogg Leaves Geffen/Interscope Records

Snoop Dogg leaves Interscope Jimmy Iovine dr dre
Snoop Dogg has confirmed that he will no longer record with Interscope, his label home for over 10 years.

The split comes nearly one year after the release of Snoop's ninth studio album, Ego Trippin'.

Lead by the crossover, 80s inspired ballad "Sexual Eruption," the LP debuted at #3 on Billboard's Top 200, but fell short of gold certification.

While the West Coast veteran declined to give specific details on the reason for the sudden split, Snoop verified there will not be any final albums with Interscope.

"We are pushing the envelope on getting everything finalized," Snoop told AllHipHop.com. "But I will not be releasing anymore projects under Interscope/Geffen."

In his first tenure with Interscope under Death Row Records, Snoop released his classic, 4X platinum debut Doggystyle (1993), the platinum Murder Was the Case soundtrack (1994), and the double platinum sophomore solo Tha Doggfather (1996).

After moving to Master P's No Limit Records for 3 albums from 1998-2000, and briefly to Capitol/EMI in 2002, Snoop returned to Interscope via the Geffen imprint with 2004's well-received, platinum album R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece, 2006's The Blue Carpet Treatment (gold), and finally 2008's Ego Trippin'.

To date, Snoop Dogg is estimated to have sold over 15 million records worldwide during his tenure with Interscope.

At press time, Snoop has declined on divulge his next possible label home.
