Have you heard? Snoop Dogg is no longer Snoop Dogg. Now he’s Snoop Lion.
Snoop (Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. when he’s at home) announced the name change during a press conference in New York, recounting a sort of spiritual awakening he had while he was in Jamaica to recording with Diplo (or is it Dipstick):
“I want to bury Snoop Dogg (not a bad idea), and become Snoop Lion. I didn’t know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there. […] “I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated. I feel I have always been a Rastafari. I just didn’t have my third eye open, but its wide open right now.”
No doubt the guy was the High Priest of ganja-mon.
Seriously, now that Snoop has been blessed by a Rasta Priest, he should have much more political credibility. And Lions are revered far more than mere doggs. He’s like the King of the urban jungle.
So when Snoop Lion publishes a contemplative instagram concisely stating why he will not be voting for Mitt Romney, we know it is both thoughtful and well constructed.
Here is the Lion’s post. The DNC should consider adding it to their platform:
I have learned some from the above list. I had no idea that a black nigga is cooler than a white nigga. Thanks for heads up, Mr. Lion.
I do however, have to disagree with one point. From the look of both Snoop and Barack, it seems plain to me that neither could beat down anyone. It appears that a stiff wind could blow them over . Maybe that was just the Ganja talking. Inhaled courage.
Other than that, I think is a well thought out and intentioned piece.
After reading this rather compelling list, I think I’m going to change my position and support Barack. Anyone who has sniffed Beyonce has my vote. And whom, in their right mind, would vote for man with no hoes. I mean…come on!
