Snoop Dogg becomes Snoop Lion

From rapper to Rasta.

Snooplion-detail_full_for_exchange

It’s not uncommon for musicians to make transitions professionally. In fact, it’s probably what sets good musicians apart from mediocre ones.

But every now and then the transformation musically spills over into their personal lives too (the Beatles in India, Cat Stevens is now Yusuf Islam, Mos Def is not Yasiin Bey) and that’s happened with rap icon Snoop Dogg.

Snoop (aka Calvin Broadus) has been in the rap game since the majority of us can remember / were alive. This guy was discovered by Dre when he was just a teenager and has been consistently at the top of the hip hop charts – or at least at the top of its attention charts – ever since.

Now Snoop has decided that he is Bob Marley reincarnated*. “I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated. I feel I have always been a Rastafarian. I just didn't have my third eye open, but it's wide open right now.”

In a new documentary, Snoop travels to Jamaica to embrace Rastafarian life and record a reggae record as his new alias, Snoop Lion. Apparently Snoop has left behind his hip hop roots. We cannot wait to hear/see the outcome.


*Nobody seems to have questioned the fact that Marley died after Snoop was born.
