“I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion,” said 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.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there.”
Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, will make music his “kids and grandparents can listen to.” This coming fall he will release “Reincarnated,” a reggae album.
