The one and only ‘Snoop Dogg’ now requests the moniker Snoop Lion since he underwent a transformation after being in Jamaica recording his soon-to-be-released reggae album in February. The transformation Snoop underwent was not only to his name, but it also led to his becoming Rastafarian, switching his genre from rap to reggae, and hoping o make music that might give “a chance to perform for kids and grandkids.” Snoop Lion has hired producer Diplo for his new album, brought on a trio of hit songwriters, and even had a fill crew document his transformation from a Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion.
