Snoop Dogg changes to Snoop Lion=!?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by scorpionldr, Jul 31, 2012.

  1. Anyone hear about this news/care? Why do artists think suddenly changing their name does anything but just make it confusing for the listener?

    Plus, a Lion? Snoop, you look like a lot of things. You don't look like a Lion.
  2. Maybe it's a marketing tie-in with Apple. But should be Snoop Mountain Lion now.

    read it this morning. Laughed. I kind of suspect that Mr. Lion is just trying to be affiliated with marijuana more by getting onto the rastafari train.

    It didn't work for Prince. I don't see it working for Snoop either.

    Apparently the name change is only for the reggae album he's putting out.

  10. Already heard his single. It's 'produced' by Diplo but it's essentially a Ken Boothe song with Snoop and some rasta singing. There's also a Vice documentary about Snoop's conversion to Rastafari
  11. I think they meant to say, "Snoop Dogg is tired of rapping about weed and wants to sing about weed" :p
  12. exactly.

    This is just as corny as the smokeable book. Except now we're going to listen to over a half hour of reggae madness from a guy that wants to try to perfect the art of stutter-ranting rather than looking at the book for two seconds and laughing.
  13. To be a reincarnation of someone, don't you need to have been born after they died? :bag:

  15. as a reggae fan, I'm definitely willing to listen to it.
  16. I like Snoop ... He's in rotation on my playlist ...

    Rastafarian... It was just a matter of time.

    Why dont he just call hisself da "shnizzle" and be done with it.
    didnt work for prince , didnt work for T baggy shorts or whatever he's calling himself these days, what a bunch of maroons. Maybe I'll start calling myself "cheeky the rabbit"........... see me in a future celebrity rag at your local supermarket checkout.
