Apparently Snoop Dogg is changing his name to Snoop Lion. This guy never cease to surprise. Snopp Lion will be releasing a reggae album “Reincarnated” later this year. During the press release he explained why the change of name. He explained that he has always been a Rastafarian. During the interview he also said that the spirits spoke to him and that’s why he traveled to Jamaica.
Well there a new name was given to him and there by transformed from Snopp Dogg to Snopp Lion. During his stay in Jamaica he made a documentary, in this documentary the viewer’s follow Snopp Lions journey to Jamaica to record his album.
There is something very comic, carefree and laidback about this guy. That’s why this whole thing just seems like a gimmick. He has been into all kind of business besides from hip-hop that he is mainly known for, he has tried country music, the adult film industry and not to mention the The Snopp deville Cadillac (pimped Cadillac’s Snopp Doggy style). It will be interesting to see how long and how far he will go with new choice of career. It wouldn’t surprise me if he had a new revelation and started singing gospel, the question is what would the new choice of name be this time around be? He had Snopp Doggy, Snopp Dogg and now Snopp Lion, the next could be a challenge!
