Many of his 22.7 million followers on Twitter were excited by the post, and some demanded the almost legendary 'Detox' album or 'Relapse 2'. Others want a response from Slim Shady to The Game's most recent diss song, 'The Black Slim Shady'.
This picture comes just days after Snoop told Entertainment Tonight, on the red carpet for his new film, Day Shift, that he will be working with Dre again on a future album.
"We're cooking up a little something. I don't wanna talk about it too much, but we're back together again.”
Snoop continued, "It's been 30 years since we worked on a record, and we're doin' something, we're workin' on something."

The three had collaborated on Dr. Dre’s 1999 album, '2001', which served as a sequel to 'The Chronic'.
Snoop provided verses for ‘Bitch N-ggaz’, ‘Fuck You’, ‘Still D.R.E’, and ‘The Next Episode’, while Eminem contributed to "What's The Difference" and ‘Forgot About Dre’.
Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and Eminem also got together earlier this year for the SuperBowl halftime show.
They were joined by Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and special guest 50 Cent. The rappers all performed a series of seminal tracks from their careers in a rap mash-up, but one track that stood out was Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's 1999 collaboration 'Still D.R.E', from Dr. Dre's album '2001.
