Snoop’s new identity, maturity works for first reggae album

It’s not just a name change, but there’s a new take on life for Snoop Lion, who switched his stage name from Snoop Dogg after a trip to Jamaica where he embraced Rastafarian culture.

And the new project works.

Snoop’s first reggae album, “Reincarnated,” includes some fine production by Major Lazer (aka Diplo), with guest appearances from Miley Cyrus, Akon, Rita Ora and Angela Hunte, who co-wrote the Jay-Z hit “Empire State of Mind.”

The rapper is still the marijuana-smoking, ultra-smooth Snoop we’ve all come to know and love. But he’s also more focused on love and happiness, not the gangsta raps he spewed in the past.

He sings against gun violence on “No Guns Allowed,” which features rapper Drake and vocals from his daughter Cori B. The track is special because it shows how Snoop has matured as a musician — and bringing on his 13-year-old daughter only drives home the point. He tackles global warming on “Tired of Running” with Akon, and preaches unity on “Lighters Up,” featuring Mavado and Popcaan.

The gem of the album, though, is the dancehall track featuring Cyrus. “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” is an easygoing track.

While there are misses — like “Get Away” and “Fruit Juice” — most of Snoop’s twelfth album is an entertaining piece of work.

Snoop shoots first video in JA as he unites Mavado and Popcaan

mavado-snoop-lion-popcaan1Recently reincarnated American musician, Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) continues to showcase his infatuation for Jamaican culture by shooting his first music video in the island. He is also using it as an opportunity to bridge two of music’s camps together.

Snoop Lion arrived in the island last weekend to shoot his second Reggae video since shifting his moniker earlier this year. The video, for his single Lighters Up, features appearances from prominent ‘Gaza’ artiste, Popcaan and popular ‘Gully’ singjay, Mavado. The trio shot the Andy Capper directed video in Portland.

In an interview on TVJ’s Entertainment Report aired Friday, Snoop Dogg admitted that he used Lighters Up as an opportunity to bring together two of the biggest names from the ‘Gaza’ and ‘Gully’ camps, known for their animosity towards each other in recent years.

Snoop Dogg debuts alter-ego, drops first Reggae single

Months after internationally acclaimed rap legend, Snoop Dogg filmed a documentary in Jamaica, the prominent artiste has created an alter ego symbolic of the island’s culture and its most popular genre.

In February, Snoop Dogg visited Jamaica as he shot footage for a documentary focusing on the Rastafari Movement as well as the island’s culture. Additionally, the rap icon reportedly recorded a single at Geejam Studios in Portland for his upcoming album, Reincarnated.

Obviously fond of Jamaican folklore and Reggae music, Snoop Dogg recently created a new moniker, Snoop Lion and has recorded his debut single under the new alter-ego dubbed, La La La. Produced by Major Lazer, La La La showcases an authentic Reggae sound as Snoop attempts to speak Jamaican patois. Meanwhile, popular Reggae singer, Jovi Rockwell features on the track as she provides background vocals.

So far, the reception to Snoop Dogg’s change of style has been positive as fans and even Bob Marley’s son, Rohan Marley offered words of encouragement via Twitter (@snoop_lion) to the prominent entertainer.

This past March, Major Lazer’s Diplo hinted during an interview with MTV.com that he and Snoop Dogg will be working on a Reggae album together.

“What we’re doing is a reggae record. It’s like Snoop Dogg and Major Lazer together. It’s all reggae and he’s singing and he’s doing an awesome job and I never knew it, but he had his heart in every song,” he said.

“We’re going to get back into the production of it next month, and I’m really proud of that record. It’s the first record I’ve ever executive-produced and his crew is amazing.”

Major Lazer has significant experience dabbling in Jamaican music, working with highly regarded Dancehall/Reggae acts such as Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal and Mr. Lexx.

Meanwhile, Snoop Lion will give his first live performance during Caribana 2012 next week Friday in Toronto, Canada.

Known for his electronic dub musical styling and as one-half of world renowned production team Major Lazer, Thomas Wesley Pentz aka Diplo lends his eclectic ear and considerable talents as a Reggae selector to Riddimentary.

Choosing anthems such as “Night Nurse” by Gregory Isaacs, “Police In Helicopter” by John Holt, “Telephone Love” by J.C. Lodge and “Anarexol” by Eek-A-Mouse, Riddimentary sees Diplo not only selecting through the Greensleeves catalog but also placing his imprint on its legacy.
