Folks, did you know that Snoop Dogg is now Snoop Lion?
Now, why would he call himself like that? Well folks, Snoop Dogg wants you to know that he is “turning his back” on rap and is now taking on the world of reggae with a new name, Snoop Lion.
“I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated,” Snoop told reporters at a news conference at Miss Lily’s, a Caribbean restaurant in New York, reports The New York Times.
He added: “I feel I have always been a Rastafari. I just didn’t have my third eye open, but it’s wide open right now.”
However, Snoop said that he hopes his hard-core rap fans will appreciate his creative movement and give songs like “No Guns Allowed” a chance.
“It’s so tragic that people are still doing stupid things with guns,” Snoop said.
“I could have never made a song called ‘No Guns Allowed’ because I’m supposed to be a gangster and we supposed to keep one on us at all times. … But after looking at my life and what it is now and my kids and all the things that go on in life, I feel like it should be no guns allowed.”
Well folks, what do you think of the new Snoop Dogg or should I say Snoop Lion?
