Rapper Snoop Dogg Is Now Snoop Lion!
The 40-year-old, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr, is embracing reggae instead of the culture of guns he once rapped about. He also says that he was born again after a recent visit to Jamaica. The musician is in the process to release a reggae album called Reincarnated later this year.
Snoop didn’t explain why he was changing from Dogg to Lion, but it’s likely a reference to the Lion of Judah, a religious symbol popular in Rastafarian and Ethiopian culture.
