Snoop Dogg fans, start your engines. After teasing his forthcoming Bush for months, the rapper is streaming the album a week earlier than promised, via iTunes Radio.

One thing hasn’t changed though: the album is every bit as funky, smooth, and stoner-ready as Snoop said it’d be. The first song, “California Roll,” features the lyric “get yourself a medical card,” delivered as a come-on.

The album features almost no rapping, dropped in favor of bubbling bass-lines and crooning funk vocals. It sounds like a timeless aggregate of ornate ’70s funk and early 2000s N.E.R.D. Which makes sense: Pharrell played a large part in producing the album, and his lush sonic fingerprints are all over it.
