Snoop Dogg goes reggae: Listen to ‘La La La,’ his first track as Snoop Lion
Snoop Dogg, who used to be Snoop Doggy Dogg if you can remember back far enough, is about to reincarnate as a lion: Pitchfork reports Snoop will release a new record, “Reincarnated,” under the moniker Snoop Lion.
And you know what? We can’t blame the dude. He’s worked like a Dogg for years—it’s about time he kicked back. Seriously—male lions sleep up to 20 hours a day. That’s living. Snoop announced his new Snoop Lion mode over Twitter, of course: “sendin the positive vibes all around!!! jahh!!! rastafari!!!
Below take a listen to “La La La,” the first singe from Snoop Lion, produced by Diplo with an assist from Major Lazer. There’s also already a video, which you can check out below. “Reincarnated” will release later this year on Vice.
