Artist: Snoop Lion —
If there is one thing that Long Beach, California native, Snoop Dogg knows how to do, it's make music that is timeless and bangs. Last February, the Doggfather announced a new documentary that was going to be tied into upcoming studio album entitled Reincarnated. The hype grew louder when he introduced a new stage name and mindset that is refreshing for those tired of incessant violence in Hip-Hop/Rap music. Telling reporters that he was rechristened as "Snoop Lion" by a Rastafarian priest in Jamaica, the film and the movie chronicled the High Times rappers transition to Reggae artist.
His first Reggae single, "La La La," wasn't exactly as smash hit at bashment parties around the globe. But his second single, "Here Comes the King," produced by Major Lazer and featuring Snoop as his most irie is a testament to his ingenuity as an artist. Armed with a reinvigorated sound, a stance against his old ways within the Hip-Hop culture, and a clearly defined persona, Snoop Lion proves that an old dog can surely learn a new trick or two.
