Can't Say Goodbye

Album: Ego Trippin' (2008)
  • This features R&B great Charlie Wilson of The Gap Band.
  • Snoop Dogg (from his record label website): "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."
  • This track, along with several others on the album, was produced by Teddy Riley. Snoop Dogg told Artist Direct: "Teddy Riley did his thang on this album. We reconnected when we were both honored at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors, so I wanted him to work on Ego Trippin'. The s--t he's created is on a whole new level."
