"It's not that I wanna be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track," explained Snoop. "I wanna bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion."
It looks like Long Beach rapper Snoop Dogg really has jumped headfirst into Rastafarianism. The rapper held a press conference to try and shed light on his decision--one which most people scoffed at as a weed gimmick.
"I thought I was going to make another gangsta record. I thought I was going to make another pimp album. I thought I was going to do what I do! But this called me and it put all of that to rest. Anytime the spirit calls you, you got to know that it's serious and it's real."
It seems like Snoop Lion really has been reincarnated. What do you think about Snoop's new connection with Jah?
