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.

Mark “Little Pacquaio” Barriga Advances With Olympic Win

31 Jul

Light flyweight Mark Anthony Barriga, known as Little Pacquaio, considered Team Philippines’ best chance at a gold medal and Team Philippines’ only boxing representative. Little Pacquaio earned a one-sided victory at these London Olympics against Italy’s Manuel Cappai on Tuesday. Barriga earned his nickname “Little Pacquaio” by training at Pacquaio’s camp. At 5-foot-2, Little Pacquaio will use his punching power and quickness against bigger fighters just like Manny Pacquaio.

Philippines’ young boxing talent usually choose a professional career and not compete at the Olympics, as this is the case for Manny Pacquaio, who turned pro at age 17.  Philippines’ total Olympic medals to date is nine, five won in boxing. It’s nice to know Little Pacquaio chose to compete in the Olympics and is now advancing to the Round of 16.

Let’s go Little Pacquiao!

Apple Launches iTunes in Philippines and Other Asian Countries

26 Jun

Apple just announced the launching of iTunes in 12 Asian countries including Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. iTunes will carry a large option of music from major and independent labels from the Philippines. This will give people in the Philippines opportunity to also download music, apps, books, movies, podcasts, and tv shows.

There will be more opportunity for artists from the Philippines to get their music out to an international audience. I just looked up a few artists from the Philippines such as Kyla, Nina, and Juris Fernandez. I was not able to find these artists before on iTunes but now I can. For artists living abroad, this will also give them more exposure to Filipinos living in the Philippines as well.
