Snoop Dogg Reinvents Himself as Snoop Lion

31 Jul

West Coast Rap legend Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg now has a new name. Snoop’s new name is Snoop Lion. During a recent visit to a Rastafarian temple in Jamaica, “the high priest” said to Snoop, ““He looked me in my eyes and said, ‘no more. You are… the lion.” This is not the first time Snoop changed his name, he was originally Snoop Doggy Dogg, dropping “Doggy” years later.

Snoop will be releasing an album called “Reincarnated”, produced by Diplo. When Snoop was in Jamaica, Snoop felt the spirit of Bob Marley and said he was, “Bob Marley reincarnated.” It’s been a long evolution for Snoop since releasing his first solo album, “Doggystyle” in 1993.  It will be interesting to see what kind of reggae music Snoop Lion and Diplo comes out with.
