Did Snoop Dogg Really Change His Name To Snoop Lion?

Posted on August 1st, 2012 at 7:44 am

He's no Leo, but rumors that rapper Snoop Dogg has changed his name to Snoop Lion are true. The rapper revealed earlier this week that he's doing a little mammal swap with his name.

"I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion," the rapper revealed during a press conference. "Snoop Lion is the elevation of Snoop Dogg."

Snoop says he decided to change his name after going on a spiritual journey to Jamaica. While visiting the Caribbean island, a high priest at a Rastafarian temple told the rapper he was a lion not a dog.

Snoop Lion's journey is documented in a new film titled, Reincarnated. And get this: the rapper is no longer rapping, but instead doing reggae music.

A trailer for the film was released last month. You can check it out below.

      So if the priest would have told him he was a rat would it be snoop rat?  He should ask Prince how that worked for him previously.
