A new Snoop Dogg documentary called "Reincarnated" traces the rap star's transformation into his new name and style. Snoop Dogg, real name Calvin Broadus, now goes by the moniker of "Snoop Lion," a reggae-inspired name.
According to a Salon.com report on March 14, the new documentary follows Snoop as he goes to Jamaica and gets immersed in the Rastafari culture. After his trip there, Snoop transformed into Snoop Lion, a new reggae artist with a new reggae album, as well as a new political agenda. According to the director of the documentary that agenda involves "Anti-bad things," since Snoop previously celebrated the bad side of life in his rap music.
Also part of Snoop's agenda is to change those marijuana laws around the country, making the drug legal. Snoop said regarding that issue:
"Wake up. It’s the 21st century. Some of these laws and rules we have are 18th century and 19th century and 20th century. People need to understand that some of these laws and rules need to be tweaked to the people of today."
The new Snoop Dogg documentary, "Reincarnated," is rated R and involves pervasive drug use, language and some sexual content. A video trailer can be seen here at YouTube. Snoop Dogg's new album of the same title has an April 23 released date. While it will be considered a reggae album it features several hip hop guest stars including Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, T.I., and Drake.
