Snoop Dogg is no more. Well, the “D-O-double G” is no more. Snoop Dogg says he is now Snoop Lion. He visited Jamaica in January and discovered his true inner Rastafarian self. (No, I am NOT kidding!) Snoop explained:
“I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion. I didn’t know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there.”
I’m going to need a moment to wrap my brain around this. Snoop Dogg Lion said he also now wants to make music ”kids and grandparents can listen to.” So he’s releasing a reggae album called ‘Reincarnated’ this fall.
“Rap is not a challenge to me. I’ve won every accolade you can get in rap, they call me ‘Uncle Snoop’ in rap. When you’re an uncle, it’s time to find something new … I want to feel like a kid again.”
If you’ve heard Snoop’s music, then you know this is a HUGE change. I’ll be on the lookout for the first single from ‘Reincarnated’ to drop, that’s for sure!
