Snoop Dog Becomes a Lion

Mufasa, Mufasa, Mufasa

 As of today… July 31, 2012 Snoop Dogg is no longer “Snoop Dogg.” He’s done a “Diddy” and has created him a new name! If anyone does something that Puffy or Prince did, your hardness is already in question.

I don’t know if it’s all the weed talking, but apparently Snoop wants you to know that he’s tired of hip-hop and is claiming that he is Bob Marley reincarnated. Weed is a hell of a drug. He claims that he wants to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.” We all know what that means, it's going to suck. But, let's be honest for a moment, when was the last good Snoop album? Doggystyle back in 94 comes to mind. Everything else has been a comedy of errors and the fact that he somehow was able to be called a good rapper in spite of going more and more commercial with each craptastic release is nothing short of amazing. Now, all he does it make made to DVD releases about pimping, and appearing at every Comedy Central Roast.

Snoop also says that he’s spiritually connected to Bob Marley and now claims to be “Bob Marley reincarnated” so now he plans to release a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall. I'm sure it will be a hot steaming pile of dog doo.

“I feel like I’ve always been Rastafarian,” Snoop said of the spiritual Jamaican movement, I'm sure smoking weed and screwing chicks without commitment isn't the only thing to being Rastafarian. If that's the case, the majority of the world would be Rastafarian.

While there, he said, he visited a temple, was renamed Snoop Lion and was also given the Ethiopian name Berhane, meaning “light of the world.”
Snoop Dog Snoop didn’t explain why he was switching from “Dogg” to “Lion,” but it’s likely a reference to the Lion of Judah, a religious symbol popular in Rastafarian and Ethiopian culture. I say, lame attempt at attention because Snoop's music is worse than Soulja Boy's right now, that's an achievement worth a name change.

Snoop goes on to say, “Reggae was calling … it’s a breath of fresh air,” he said. “Rap isn’t challenging; it’s not appealing.” Snoop has answered the call to sing and film a documentary.

Does Mufasa Look Gay?

 I'm truly at a loss for words here...what have I been saying about these "entertainers", and their vainglorious attempts to stay famous? Join a cult is one of the things that they love to do, change their name and talk about "a new direction" in their music. Let me tell you something Snoop, the music industry is saturated with music that kids and grandparents can listen to, it's called pop. If you want to do pop with a reggae beat, then do it. Don't hold a press conference with some lame explanation as to why you are "reincarnated."

Congratulations Snoop Lion, for being totally unoriginal and doing what EVERY other artist has done before you. You are no different than the slew of females that style themselves after Marilyn Monroe or Madonna (who styled herself after Marilyn Monroe).

 The cowardly lion needs to leave the weed alone, better yet leave music all together.
