Album: Bible of Love (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Snoop going to church as he hooks up with gospel music singer and pastor Tye Tribbett. The gospel star's collaboration with Snoop came as a shock to many of his fans, given the rapper's many references to drugs and hedonistic pleasures in his music. However Tribbett told ABC Radio he doesn't worry about hip-hop lyrics defiling him. He explained: "The Bible says that nothing from without can defile a man. Only from within. So, doesn't matter what music you listen to. If those lyrics connect with something in you, that's the bigger problem. It's in you."

    Tribbett added: "It's not even about the song, it's about dealing with what's in me before I heard the lyrics. So once I started managing my own spirit and being the governor of my life, then things had less effect on me."
