Snoop dropped some exciting news while speaking with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on September 27 including details about his new role as Def Jam executive creative and strategic consultant his 19th studio album being on the way.

Titled Algorithm Snoop’s 19th studio album will arrive in November, and features “a lot of big-name acts," Snoop told Fallon. He's also working on a Def Jam kids' album set for release this year too. “I was a fan of Def Jam Records as a kid,” he said. “And knowing the talent that they have over there and the opportunity that was waiting on me, I wanted to go over there and give a lot of opportunity to the artists over there to get some information, some wisdom, and some guidance from me and then also develop some new acts and give some opportunity.”

"Def Jam was the perfect place for me, considering how much I love it and how much it means to hip-hop and how it really needed somebody like me to change the energy of the building," Snoop told Fallon. "I'm over there for one reason: to get the music back poppin' and to make the people feel the way they're supposed to."

At the end of their chat, Fallon also showed a clip of Snoop's role as Cousin Itt in the new animated Addams Family 2 flick -- which you'll just have to see to believe. Watch the full interview above.
