Rapper Snoop Dogg has reportedly changed his name from Snoop Dog, to Snoop Lion. The Examiner reports the gangsta rapper-turned reggae man thinks he is Bob Marley reincarnated telling reporters Tuesday that after a “spiritual awakening,” it was clear he had to adopt a new style.
Lion even has even reportedly been meeting MarleyÂ Kids including Rohan Marley.Â According to sources, Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, Jr., had people lost for words after he mad the big announcement. This man must have been extra extra high.
“Snoop said that after traveling to Jamaica recently as part of a spiritual cleansing, a Rastafarian priest convinced him to take his life in another direction. The radical transformation began with a name change.”
Snoop Lion said this after the meeting in a temple:
“The High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.'”
Yes, Snoop Dogg changed his name to Snoop Lion, and if you don’t know, now you know. However, the former Dogg Father said that with a name-change comes a different style of music. Enter reggae for the newly-cleansed Snoop Lion.
“Rap is not a challenge to me. I had enough of that. It’s not appealing to me no more. I don’t have no challenges. I’m ‘Uncle Snoop’ in rap. When you get to be an uncle, you need to find a new profession so you can start over and be fresh again. I want to be a kid again.”
Snoop’s name change places him in the company of others who have gotten new handles mid-career. Christina Aguilera changed her name to Xtina, Puff Daddy went from Puffy to P. Diddy to Diddy, Garth Brooks changed his name to Chris Gaines and Beyonce morphed into her alter ego, Sasha Fierce, citing the Washington Post.
