I think he’s been sipping on that gin and juice…
Snoop Dogg, a pioneer in the rap game, especially west coast rap, has officially changed his name to Snoop Lion after a trip to Jamaica. His plans are to make music that kids and grandparents can listen to as well, and when I say music, I mean reggae…here is the official word from the Associated Press via Yahoo:
NEW YORK (AP) — Snoop Dogg says he was “born again” during a visit to Jamaica in January, is changing his name to Snoop Lion and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.”
The artist known for gangster rap is releasing a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall.
The West Coast rapper held a news conference in New York on Monday. Later he played five songs for a small crowd, including one called “No Guns Allowed.” It features his daughter.
The album will be followed with a documentary of the same name. It features him making music and will include some personal elements of his life, a producer of the film said. It will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
