Ooooh #RedsHotTopix is HOT today: Snoop LION?? RPatz & Kristen Custody Battle?? MTV VMA Noms: Guess who’s leading the Nom’s!?!  NEW VID ALERT : Nicki Minaj!!!!!!!!!!! J.B. ‘ALAYLM’ VID Tease!

 

After a trip to Jamaica in January Rapper Snoop Dogg said he had a ‘spiritual awakening’ and was inspired to become a Rastafarian. Snoop has now changed his name to ‘SNOOP LION’!  I couldn’t help but notice the change @ Coachella 2012! Did you?? More after JUMP!

He told Huffington Post:

“I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion. I didn’t know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there.”

Snoop plans on releasing music his kids can listen to! His new Reggae album ‘Reincarnated’ will be released this fall…
