“Calvin Broadus” is about to keep it all-the-way-funky on his next release.

The Long Beach native — previously known as “Snoop Dogg” and “Snoop Lion” — has changed his name once again.

This time, he wants to be known as “Snoopzilla.”

He’s teamed up with Dam-Funk to form the group, “7 Days of Funk.” They will release a self-titled album on Dec. 10, via Stones Throw Records.

The project pays homage to bass guitar playing legend, Bootsy Collins, who made a name for himself as a member of “Parliament-Funkadelic,” as well as “Bootsy’s Rubber Band.”
