Today must be a slow news day, because the headline on Yahoo! News right now is Snoop Dogg changing his name to Snoop Lion. I wonder if Apple will sue him for stealing their thunder. OS X Mountain Lion, a new operating system, was released last week. I am sure the two are totally unrelated, but still. Snoop is actually saying he was “born again” on a recent trip to Jamaica. The trip must have been pretty great, because not only did he change his name but he is also working on a new album. The album, aptly titled “Reincarnated”, is due out this fall. Maybe this is a new beginning for one of the most iconic rappers of our generation. Sources say that the album will be followed with a documentary of the same name. It will feature Snoop making music and will include some personal elements of his life. The film will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
The more I think about this… where did the name “Lion” even come from? Are there lions in Jamaica? I am curious to hear what his new material sounds like after this obviously life-changing and epic adventure to Jamaica. I wonder if he will stop smoking weed. Anyway, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Snoop Lion. Hear him roar!
