NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 27, 2005 -- KOCH Records is thrilled to announce a new worldwide, multi-album joint-venture partnership with Snoop Dogg, the multi-talented high-profile, platinum-selling rapper/actor/entrepreneur/football coach/icon!

The first release under this partnership arrives just in time for the holidays. KOCH Records will release Snoop Dogg Presents "Welcome To Tha Chuuch Tha Album" on December 13th, 2005. This album follows on the heels of Snoop's super-successful "Welcome to Da Chuuch" mix-tapes (of which there have been 7 successful volumes to date).

The new album features brand new music from The Dogg Pound Fam, including DPGC (Dogg Pound Gangsta Clique), with additional participation from Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Lady Rage, Daz Dillinger and up-and-comers Tiffany Foxxx, RBX, Soopafly, Half-Dead, Mira-Mira, Mykestro with participation of course from Snoop on many of the albums key jointz.

Power 106/Los Angeles have already jumped on board and have begun spiking one the new album's soon-to-be classics, "Real Soon," from DPGC.

Snoop Dogg released his highly-anticipated solo album "Snoop Dogg R&G: Rhythm & Gangsta The Masterpiece" in November 2004. The first single off the album, "Drop It Like It's Hot," created tremendous buzz on the radio and in the streets, remaining in the Top 5 on the Billboard charts and at #1 on Urban radio for several weeks. "Drop It Like It's Hot," helped position the album to be a huge chart topping success.

Another recent venture for Snoop is the creation of the Snoop Youth Football league, a project that is close to his heart. The SYFL is a youth football league aimed at kids who otherwise couldn't afford to play in other organized youth leagues. In addition to being an icon in hip hop, Snoop is accomplished as an actor, MTV show host, and sneaker designer launching the line, doggy biscuitz by Pony.
