After a trip to Jamaica, Snoop Dogg returned as Snoop Lion, a reformed reggae singer/dancehall rapper who had seen the Rastafarian light. Violence was now something to fight against, and while Biblical, vegetarian, and other bits of Ital living can be found on Snoop's first reggae album, Reincarnated, utilizing Diplo as his co-captain seems like an odd choice if you want to go the full Peter Tosh. Here, the kinetic electro producer is co-credited under his Major Lazer moniker, and while Snoop follows Burning Spear (his soft singing voice poetically damning violence and hoping for a better tomorrow throughout the album) and Diplo chases the cutting edge of cool (the choices of dancehall vocalists Mr. Vegas, Collie Buddz, and Popcaan are just as wicked as his getting Dre Skull and 6Blocc behind the boards) this album is blunted by pop, pop-rap, pop-reggae, and pop-politics, all at their most bland. Weed references are repurposed as sweet nothings on "The Good Good," a lazy, lazy lover written by Dianne Warren who comes off as hitmaker-for-hire here, but that isn't the oddest choice, as Miley Cyrus guests on "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks," a sweet but ineffective number trying to adapt the "pour one out" tribute song for Snoop's new no-on-booze, yes-on-weed lifestyle. His charm and sincerity carry these merely good and midtempo numbers on an album that's got plenty of them, and while Reincarnated is no home run, it's no great embarrassment, either, and certainly comes alive during party numbers like "Here Comes the King" (hot-stepping meets dub-stepping with a winding bassline), "Lighters Up" (Snoop meets dancehall greats Mavado and Popcaan over the tastiest of beats), and "Fruit Juice" (it's like Kool Keith doing a tropical smoothie commercial with Mr. Vegas in tow). A little backstory goes a long way when it comes to this one, so fans who have seen the Reincarnated documentary and relate to the rapper's rebirth can go up one letter grade. Otherwise, Reincarnated the album is all heart and heart-in-the-right-place, threatening to mash up the system without ever even harshing the mellow. [Reincarnated was also released with four bonus tracks.]
This is what all iTunes reviews are like.
The album isn't even out yet, but I'm giving it 5 stars because I enjoy the idea of Snoop Dogg. Helpful huh? I guess who cares as long as iTunes is makin $$$$.
Can't get into it
I miss 90's Snoop! "What's my Name?" Snoop... Lion? SMH
Leadership into the Future!
For those old enough to know the history of Snoop (Deathrow/No Limit/Bad Boy) then you know what a "phoenix from the ashes" is about in this level of artist development. As a young boy growing up in the Filthy South & now a Man raising boys - I understand a divine will of growing into the positions GOD has placed us into - our Leaders, Artist, Politicians, Sports Stars, Preachers are no exception. Snoop has gone from the concrete jungle to the top of Mt. Zion in this life - More artist and leaders should always remember the power they have to influence the present and future, thus use it wisely to shine their light bright for those seeking positive in a world dominated by mixed messages of fear, hopelessness, violence and false man made royalty! GOD bless you Snoop and may you be the first of other artist to continue to grow and leave a legacy from beginning to never ending... - Pre-Ordered -
