Snoop drops the Dogg, aims for reggae style

Snoop Dogg in 2012

(From Reuters) Rapper Snoop Dogg insists, for now, he is dropping the ‘Dogg’ to take on a new moniker, Snoop Lion.

Snoop became one of the world’s most recognizable names in rap music after his 1993 debut album “Doggystyle” helped forge the rise of gangsta rap. But the California singer and actor with the tough image of guns, drugs and “pimping” out women now claims he is now embracing reggae music, peace and love.

His transformation, he told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival about a new documentary chronicling the change, should not be too surprising: “I was always saying to myself I was Bob Marley reincarnated.”

His new nonfiction film, made by his own company, is called just that, “Reincarnated.” Like many music documentaries in recent years, it serves partly as a promotional piece for his upcoming reggae album of the same name, showing how each song was recorded, including with reggae master Bunny Wailer.

His new name, the film shows, was not chosen by him but rather handed down by Rastafarian priests in Jamaica.

“They just crowned me ‘The Lion’ because it is associated with Rastafarians and associated with reggae music and they felt like the Dogg was no longer needed,” he said. (read the full story)
