Although his legal name is Calvin Broadus, Jr., his "Snoop" identity has been the only one known to his fans and detractors for years. "I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion" Mr Broadus Jr told journalists at a news conference in New York.
Apparently it was a conversation with a Rasta priest that caused the conversion of Mr. Lion. There was no mention in the story of any substance he may or may not have smoked, inhaled the vapours of, or ingested. My own understanding of Jamaican conversions is that there's always something green behind them.
From now on he will only compose and record reggae music. No more "Gin & Juice."
Some people here, especially depraved church ladies in Minnesota and Texan Zionists, are worried about a Mohammedan takeover in the US. Seems to me they should turn their attention to the possibility of cultural infiltration by pacifist Rasta devotees of the Ethiopian cult of the great god Jah.
