Snoop Dogg Changed His Name To Snoop Lion, Releasing Reggae Album -- New Song La La La Here!

23 July 2012

Lots of artists have morphed their monikers over the years, and now Snoop Dogg has joined the clan, and changed his name for the release of his latest album!

Reincarnated will be the complete reggae album Snoop will release in coming months, and to accompany this release, he's changed his name to Snoop Lion, as a tribute to Bob Marley!

NME is reporting that the man born Calivn Cordozar Broadus, Jr. has reinvented himself as Snoop Lion for his upcoming album, and has already released his first reggae inspired single titled 'La La La.'

Check out Snoop's last collaboration video with Wiz Khalifa here!

The track is 'executive produced' by Major Lazer, which is made up of Diplo and Switch, and their signature sound is all over this release!

Speaking of the reggae follow-up to last year's Doggumentary Snoop remarked"it's special. It's a real special project to me because it's like the reincarnation and the birth of me becoming who I really am."

"This record gives me an opportunity to the world of the stadium," he said. "Those are the kind of songs that last 40, 50 years."

Check out La La La below. We like the new sound, and we can't think of a better person to release a rasta inspired mellow album!
