"Reincarnated" traces Snoop Dogg's transformation from rapper to reggae artist Snoop Lion
One would think that, given his self-professed fondness for weed, Snoop Dogg would come back as a bong in his next life. But as it turns out, the "Doggystyle" rapper has found a new existence as a reggae performer named Snoop Lion, and now fans are getting a glimpse of the transformation in the trailer for his upcoming documentary "Reincarnated."
The film, directed by Andy Capper and a, uh, joint venture between VICE Films and Snoopadelic Films, chronicles Snoop's pilgrimage to Trench Town area of Jamaica as he leaves the rap game behind to embark on a new life as a Rastafarian and a new career as a reggae artist. (The resulting album, perhaps not coincidentally, is also titled "Reincarnated.")
The film will receive a six-city release on March 15. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the documentary and share your thoughts in the comments section: Is Snoop serious about this new chapter in his life, or is he just Jah-shing around?
