Snoop Dogg Is Now Snoop Lion

While he’s never been a paragon of sanity, Snoop Dogg has at least always been pretty consistent But he’s recently talked to Jah and has now realized that he’s not Snoop Dogg at all.

His name is Snoop Lion (not Lionn), and he is the reincarnation of Bob Marley. This was all pronounced by a Nyabinghi priest on a recent visit to Jamaica, when Snoop’s third eye was opened.

The revelation comes with Snoop announcing that he won’t be rapping about sex and smoking so much anymore, but his new album, Reincarnated, will be full of reggae tunes “for kids and grandkids”.

All of this has left Snoop’s mentor, Dr. Dre, very confused indeed.

"He would see me come to rehearsals with all of my Rastafari, my gear, my hair, my look. He was just peeping me out, and I let him know I was doing a reggae project and working on the album and whatnot, but he didn't really understand it until 'La La La' came out," Snoop told MTV News.

You can listen to ‘La La La’ here—it’s not bad, but I haven’t gotten past cracking up every time he says “dem” yet.
