Snoop Dogg Changes His Name!

Snoop must be smoking some serious stuff!  The rapper has changed his name from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion!  Guess he’s sick of hip hop. He’s moving on to reggae..

“Reincarnated” Snoop Lion’s new reggae album is the real deal.  As a longtime fan of reggae, Snoop said it was the right time for this transition. During a press conference Monday, Snoop excitedly explained his mission.

“The spirit called me. Any time the spirit calls you, you gotta know it’s serious and real,” he said to a room of gathered press. “I wanna bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion.”

The rap legend hopes to leave his old ways behind.  No more songs like “Murder Was the Case”  instead, Snoop is now moving towards positivity on new songs like “No Guns Allowed” and “La La La.” “I always wanted to make a song that could stand for something,” Snoop said.
