Snoop Lion LP to feature Drake, Rita Ora, and reggae
So, Snoop Lion né Dogg‘s first ever reggae LP, ‘Reincarnated’, has gained a sheet of ‘official info’. It’ll be released on 22 Apr, and will feature earnest reggae artistes like, erm, Chris Brown, Rita Ora, Drake, Busta Rhymes and TI. Oh, and Jamaican musicians Mavado and Popcaan, who do have real dancehall credentials. Oh, and Snoop’s teenage daughter Cori B, who appears on ‘No Guns Allowed’. Make of that what you will.
Snoop makes this of ‘Reincarnation’, and “true reggae music” in general: “We were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects. It’s so much a part of who I am, and this record is all about paying homage and giving respect to those who created and love reggae music, and hopefully introducing it to a whole new audience. I feel truly honoured to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me”.
Yes, respect. Meanwhile Snoop Dogg’s new reggae reality film, ‘Reincarnated’, will be screened in British cinemas as of 22 Mar.
