Born-Again Snoop Makes a Change in Music & Name

Maybe instead of gin and juice, he'll be sticking to Communion wine? From The Grio:

Snoop Dogg says he was “born again” during a visit to Jamaica in January, is changing his name to Snoop Lion and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.”
The artist known for gangster rap is releasing a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall.
The rapper held a news conference in New York on Monday. Later he played five songs for a small crowd, including one called “No Guns Allowed.” It features his daughter.

The album will be followed with a documentary of the same name. It features him making music and will include some personal elements of his life, a producer of the film said. It will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

I'll admit that I'm more interested in checking out the documentary than the album. I'm curious to see if this will be a positive change and how long it will remain in effect...especially if this change doesn't benefit his pockets. Our world is too dictated by money and popular demand. It will be interesting to see just how much Snoop has changed.

Me, too. I'm very curious about the documentary.

I'm a little worried about if he'll be able to maintain this (See Mase).

I'm also worried that his new music will be crappy (See Mase).
