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.
I can’t wait to hear the new album. I think it’s about time for Snoop to retire from the weed smoking, badass, ‘gangsta’ life, but Snoop Lion? I also think that this change is going to last like 5 months before he’s back to talking about strippers on the pole. Amazingly, Snoop has been around for the entire rap life cycle. I would have went with Snoop Owl, not Lion.
