Snoop Dogg says he’s now officially known as Snoop Lion

The rapper has also said he’s making an entire album with no rap, just reggae.

SNOOP LION-Y LION doesn’t really have the same ring to it as Snoop Doggy Dogg, but apparently the rapper has gone ahead with a name change. reports that Snoop has told journalists in New York that he was given the new name by Rasta priests in Jamaica.

A new film called Reincarnated documents the trip to Jamaica to record an album with Diplo. In the trailer for the film he says he wanted to make a whole album with no rap on it, just reggae.

Snoop has said that he wants to “bury” Snoop Dogg after a High Priest at a Rastafarian temple told him:

No more. You are the light; you are the lion.
