Goodbye Snoop Dogg, Hello Snoop Lion [PHOTOS & VIDEOS]
Basically the rap star pulled a P. Diddy and changed his name. He will no longer go by the name Snoop Dogg but Snoop Lion. With a new name comes a new type of sound. But I am almost positive the marijuana references will still remain. What does Snoop Lion sound like? ….
How did Snoop Dogg transform from mere dog to lion?
Well it’s actually quite interesting…
He apparently had a spiritual awakening in Jamaica. According to Examiner.com, “this new name was bestowed upon him by Rastafarian priests on the ex-British colony, now an independent country as part of Commonwealth of Nations.”
Snoop Dogg felt that one priest was rather enlightening saying, “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.”
Well it was fun while it lasted, Snoop Dogg.
