Snoop is getting ready to release his 17th album I Wanna Thank Me and last week he shared the album’s title track Countdown, which is a Swizz Beatz collaboration.

On Wednesday, Snoop released Let Bygones Be Bygones which has the intro of: “Me and Suge cool as a motherf*cka. I’m cool with Suge, I’m cool with Master P, Dr. Dre; I’m cool with everybody.”

The new track mostly reflects on his time with Death Row Records and his relationship with Suge Knight. Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. was only 22-years-old when he released Doggystyle in 1993, his first album under the Death Row label. The D-O-Double-G would leave Death Row under bad terms and sign with Master P’s No Limit Records, where Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told was released on August 4, 1998.

“This man changed my life,” Snoop says of Suge. “Sh*t. We made history together, I’m talking about real history. Yeah, he did some bullshit, I’m admitting that.”

The Doggfather continues to honor the rap boss in his new track. “Suge Knight, a real ni**a, man / Think about all the great shit that you did / Let bygones be bygones,” Snoop raps. “Death Row Records will go down in history, ni**a / We did that.”

Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight Jr. is currently serving a 28-year sentence for a fatal hit-and-run from 2015 that killed Terry Carter.

Snoop credits himself for getting Suge to sign Tupac Shakur. “I was at the motherf*ckin’ top when I hit my ni**a up and said, ‘You need to grab ‘Pac,’” Snoop raps in the DJ Battlecat-produced record. Tupac signed onto Death Row Records in 1995 after Knight posted Shakur’s $1.4 million bail for Pac’s first-degree sexual abuse conviction in 1993.

Snoop said Let Bygones Be Bygones is the song off his new album that he’s most excited to play live. “That’s a real musical song, very musical, where I’ll probably have a proper band up there playing the musical pieces and give it an array of sound that normally you don’t see in a hip-hop show,” the legendary rapper said.

I Wanna Thank Me is expected to be released before the end of summer.
