Apparently Dogs turn into Lions…

This Monday, July 30, 2012 photo shows Snoop Dogg, who now goes by Snoop Lion, posing for a portrait at Miss Lily's in New York. Snoop Dogg says he was “born again” during a visit to Jamaica in February, changed his name to Snoop Lion and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.”  The artist known for gangster rap is releasing a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall.

Snoop is gearing up for his genre change from Hip Hop to Reggae with a name change. The west-coast gangster rapper announced on Monday that his new reggae album Reincarnated (on the nose much?) is set for release in the fall. During his press conference he played five songs from the album including what may be his first single titled, No Guns Allowed; which features Snoop’s daughter. When asked about what his intention was for the change he explained that he was ready to make music that, “kids and grandparents can listen to.”

This is a pretty dramatic change from his past career and apparently I am not the only one who thinks so. There was a documentary film crew following the gin and juice drinking artist throughout his reincarnation. The footage will be made into a documentary set to debut at the Toronto film festival.

I think that he had a better name in D-O-double G…. but i’m a bit old school like that.
