Snoop Will Now Explain His Journey From Dogg to Lion

If you have not been following the ins and outs of Snoop Dogg's burgeoning reggae career, allow us to briefly summarize: Snoop went to Jamaica, made an album, and was rechristened Snoop Lion in honor of his new Rastafarian faith. This is all true. And now he is releasing a documentary, titled Reincarnated, that explains his spiritual awakening and new career goals. The money quote: "Fuck Snoop Dogg. Don't think about none of the shit he rapped about. Hustlin' and making money and drug dealing and shooting. All that shit be outta here." There are also several shots of religious education (and one shot of Diplo looking like Diplo, in case things were getting too heavy). Anyway, meet Snoop Lion, everyone.
