As Snoop Dogg announced his conversion to Rastafari recently, the rapper unveiled his new name!
“I want to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion,” he said.
The faith was born in Jamaica, where calling someone a dog is deeply insulting.
The priest, a member of the most traditional branch of Rastafari, Nyabingi, rechristened the rapper Snoop Lion. The new documentary “Reincarnated” captures the rapper’s conversion in Jamaica last February.
Unlike dogs, lions hold a place of pride in Rasta theology!
