Are you guys sick of this photo yet?
Snoop D-O-Double G has changed his name...and persona.
At a press conference on Monday, Snoop told reporters that he was rechristened to Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest. He supposedly had a spiritual awakening in Jamaica this past February, which makes sense of the Rastafarian priest christening.
According to the Washington Post:
I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion, he told reporters, according to news.com.au I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where 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.’ From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there.
Snoopy says as a result of his renewal, his new album will be a reggae record as he finds rap no longer a challenge.
The Dogfather supposedly believes he's Bob Marley reincarnated.
Hmm....this explains the plethora of Bob Marley photos on Snoop's instagram.
