After a recent trip to Jamaica, Snoop Dogg was inspired to transform himself into a Lion. And while that might sound ludacris, it's the dog gone truth. Rastafarian priests gave Snoop the new name of Snoop Lion, and apparently the rapper isn't looking back. Says Snoop, "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.'"
The 40-year-old music icon says he's Bob Marley reincarnated, and is now turning his attention from rap to reggae. Lion's debut single, titled "La La La," hit the Internet yesterday.
Hilarious. Love Snoop Dogg Lion!
