Reincarnated (Deluxe Version) by Snoop Lion on Apple Music

16 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Over his career of 20+ years, Snoop Dogg has gone through many changes. He was an instant superstar when he first hit the scene, becoming the face/voice of crossover gangsta rap music, beating a murder case as his debut solo album topped the charts. In the two decades since, he's lived large on Death Row Records, faded away some during the No Limit years, and then blown up bigger than ever, doing the reality-TV thing, coaching youth football, starring in movies, and palling around with other celebrity fixtures like Martha Stewart and Donald Trump. While he's definitely not the menace he was in his youth, he continues to put out new music all the time and is unafraid to collaborate with anybody, from The Pussycat Dolls to Willie Nelson. On Reincarnated, he ditches the rapping altogether, changing his name, enlisting new producers (including Diplo, Major Lazer, and Dre Skull), and dropping a straight-up reggae album. Recorded in Jamaica in conjunction with a documentary film, it features an intriguing guest list (pop stars Miley Cyrus and Drake, plus dancehall favorites Mr. Vegas, Collie Budz, and Mavado). Check out "So Long," "Lighters Up," and "Fruit Juice."

About Snoop Lion

Although Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. was doing more than fine under his hip-hop moniker Snoop Dogg, a 2012 trip to Jamaica convinced the rapper that reggae was his true calling and that he should assume the Rasta name Snoop Lion. Granted to Snoop by a Jamaican high priest, the name was first floated during a summer 2012 press conference introducing the debut Snoop Lion single, "La La La," which was released on the Berhane Sound System label and produced by Major Lazer. The track would land on Snoop Lion's debut reggae album, the appropriately titled Reincarnated, which landed in 2013. ~ David Jeffries
