One of the biggest acts in the world has undergone a massive transformation. Snoop Dogg underwent a revalation in Jamaica last February while he was recording his up coming reggae album, Reincarnated. The rapper transformed to Rastafarianism and consequently changed his name to Snoop Lion. Snoop Lion has called upon the legendary Diplo to head production on his next album which will further diversify his new musical direction. Read up more on the subject in the article posted HERE and check out his first single, “La La La”, produced my Major Lazer below.
