    Default Snoop Dogg evolves into Snoop Lion, claims he is Bob Marley reincarnated

    Rastafarian priests gave Snoop Dogg the new identity Snoop Lion during his spiritual awakening, as the music icon records first reggae album.



    Snoop went to Jamaica a Dogg but returned a Lion after a religious and artistic awakening.

    Rastafarian priests bestowed the new moniker Snoop Lion upon the music icon when he visited Jamaica in search of "a new path."

    "I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' And he looked me in my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light; you are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there," he explained at a press conference.

    Born Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., Lion has always felt a special connection with Jamaica's most celebrated music legend, according to news.com.au. "I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated," Lion said. "I feel I have always been a Rastafari. I just didn't have my third eye open, but it's wide open right now."

    This spiritual development has revived Lion's artistic energy. After years in the music industry, rap started to stale for the 40-year-old music icon. Ever since he appeared on the scene with "Doggystyle" in the early 1990s, Snoop has been a prominent player in west coast hip-hop. But Lion welcomes musical change and growth.

    "I've been on the top ever since I've been in it," he explained. "I got rap songs that will never die. And that ain't with no disrespect but I'm tired of rap."

    While in the studio, he distanced himself from his musical past by referring to Snoop Dogg in the third person. "F*** Snoop Dogg. Don't think about none of the s*** he rapped about: hustling and making money and drug-dealing and shooting. All that s***'ll be out of here," he said to his collaborators in the studio.

    With reggae, Lion has the chance to create music that all ages can enjoy - from children to his grandparents, who might not have been able to enjoy his harder-edged rap catalogue.

    "I'm a wise man in the music industry," he said. "Not that I'll never do rap again because I'm always gonna do what I love, but right now I'm Snoop Lion and I'm having fun with this reggae movement so hopefully you guys will enjoy it as well."

    Vice Films - in association with Snoopadelic Films - will release a documentary about the artist's transformation from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 7.

    Snoop Lion's first single is "La La La."

    LMFAO.

    Just because you SMOKE Bob Marleys, doesn't MAKE you Bob Marley.

    Ummmm....

    Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr (Snoop Dogg) born on 10/20/71

    Bob Marley Died on 5/11/81

    Did Bob's soul just decide to 'occupy' him recently?

    I don't know alot about the concept od reincarnation, but I think the original person has to be dead before the second is born.

    ...or am I wrong there?

    At least he realizes how stupid rap is/has become.

    wow guys, a lot of unnecessary hate on this thread.

    i am a hip-hop fan, but was never much into the west-coast stuff. so i "like" Snoop, he's good... but nowhere near a favorite or a Top 10 in my mind.

    and this seems pretty odd, changing his name, etc.... and yea i'm sure he's high as shit. so on the one hand, i'm rolling my eyes with you.

    but calling him an idiot and a piece of shit and sort-of man? wtf is that?

    i also dig on reggae, and while i applaud his goal of putting out more positive messages and music for all ages... i doubt this album will be all that great.

    but why is he an idiot piece of shit? because you dont like rap? because he smokes weed? so what.

    I want my music stars of the world to be mentally stable, balanced individuals because they are more comforting when they wear cardigans and do crosswords.

    And they make nice tunes that you can tap your foot to and, if lucky, you can whistle along on a bright and breezy spring morning, as you skip happily on your way.

    What on earth is with all this silliness?

    Heavens above. What a funny fellow he is.

    Why's everyone trying to harsh his buzz? The man wants to be Snoop Lion, let him be.

    If I had Snoop's cash, I'd kick my heals up on the porch rail, spark up a big fat doobie and change my identity too. Some people just have the life.
