Snoop Dogg got hold of some top grade marijuana in Jamaica and soon after… changed his name to Snoop Lion.

Hip-hop rapper Snoop Dogg yesterday announced he’s changing his name — to Snoop Lion — after having a “born-again’’ experience with a Rastafarian priest.

“I didn’t want to be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track . . . I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn’t know that until I went to the temple and received the name . . . from the . . . priest,” said the rapper also formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dog and nicknamed the “Doggfather.’’

The 40-year-old, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, Jr., believes that he is Bob Marley reincarnated and is embracing reggae instead of the culture of guns he once rapped about.

This man is reportedly rolling over in his grave:

Snoop told reporters that he will be the greatest reggae star that ever lived and intends to surpass Bob Marley as a reggae star.  “I am Jah,” said Snoop Lion.

Snoop Lion wants to make music that his grandkids can listen to.  He thinks hip-hop and rap are for heathens.

Jamaica officials said that Snoop may have just smoked a bad batch of weed and that in a few months he’ll drop the lion and get back to the dogg.

“He’s really high right now,” said one Jamaican necklace salesman.  “He’ll come down by 2013 and be rapping again.   We told him not to use the vaporizer.”

Jimmy Cliff and Ziggy Marley had the same reaction when told of Snoop Dogg’s name change.  “Who’s Snoop Dogg?”

Snoop Lion’s first album will be entitled “The Lion, The Bitch and the Jahrobe.”

  1. Honestly, this website is a joke. Stupid posts about Ziggy Marley not knowing who Snoop is. After his brothers have done songs with him? Silly jokes. Say something about Snoop thinking he's Bob MArley, while Bob died when he was 9. Get facts.

  2. Snoop Lion is the real deal! He has seen Jah's light, please do not hate the transformation for the good. It's all about the music. Check out OG Kush-A-Holics on website cdbaby.com My Life, My Right We all make our own choices. Peace and Blessings for all!
