Calvin Broadus may have made millions churning out rap albums and performing under his world famous moniker Snoop Dogg, but apparently, the title is no longer working for him. The forty-year-old announced heís taking the reggae themes occasional to his past music and exploring them in the future via the name Snoop Lion.

Looking for a way to begin producing music to unite multiple generations, Snoop took a trip to Jamaica earlier this year, and while meeting with a Rastafarian priest, he was officially rechristened Snoop Lion. Months of recording with a new emphasis on positivity followed, and now, the musician is ready to show the world his new outlook. You can take at the press conference announcing the name change belowÖ



Itís always tempting to write off name changes and genre swaps as desperate gimmicks, but given Snoopís continued popularity as well as how well heís done with reggae themes in the past, there might really be something to this Lion transition. He told The New York Daily News he may wind up rapping again, but for the time being, itís on the backburner.

Iím down with the Lion, and Iím confident it will work out. What about you? Are you going to embrace Snoopís change of direction, or do you think he should just keep rapping? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll belowÖ
