Snoop Dogg's 11th studio album, Doggumentary Music, is due out in March 2011, so-called because, as he said in a statement, "this is my life and I want to share my music, and my process of making it, with the fans."
(Speaking of sharing music, Snoop Dogg is releasing a new song today in honor of Prince William's bachelor party. The rapper will unveil "Wet" on his site at 4:20 p.m. The second singel from Doggumentary Music is also "an anthem made for Prince William's bachelor party and all bachelor parties around the world to follow.")

With that, a map of Snoop Dogg's Long Beach is apropos: As most every other song Snoop's ever released seems to refer to the "Eastside of the LBC," Snoop Dogg and his crew have elevated Long Beach to every hip-hop fan's consciousness; if you've ever wondered where exactly 21 and Lewis was, or what the borders of the Eastside were, you're in luck--just look at the map below.
