Grapple: That must have been some seriously good sh** he was smoking in Jamaica.
HotIgneous Intruder: Snoop Pretentiously Pretentious.
rudemix: Snoop Titmouse.
question_dj: There's a link to the La La La tune he made.It's mediocre for reggae, at best. He probably shouldn't sing, nor should he do it in a patious. It sounds horrible.
MDGeist: Hahaha! Wow rappers really need to get over them selves.
vernonFL: question_dj: There's a link to the La La La tune he made.It's mediocre for reggae, at best. He probably shouldn't sing, nor should he do it in a patious. It sounds horrible.This. Its not his best work. I heard that Diplo produced it though?
H31N0US: So let's review. Snoop Dogg has not put out anything relevant in about 7 years. His manager or PR firm, presumably equipped with marketing degrees & MBA's, know just what to do when a usable product falls out of favor: re brand. NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT TASTE!!! Make up a story about going to the top of the mountain it's great imagery.Only India is passe...Beatles already did it...and won't have a lot of cred with Snoop's core market. Where to? Where to? Ahhhh.... Jamaica mon! De Rastafarian Shaman represent!"Ok Snoop, here's the plan: you're gonna take a vacation to Jamaica. Don't worry, this is brand building so we can write it off. Stay there a couple weeks, go to this Rastafarian temple when you are there. When you get back to the States, read this, and follow with a lot or reggae in your next release" (hands Snoop some nonsense about reincarnation and rebirth as "Snoop Lion".Well, that's my interpretation.
funk_soul_bubby: MDGeist: Hahaha! Wow rappers really need to get over them selves.From the early days of hip-hop one of the absolute key messages has been "I'm better on the mic than you or anyone else." It's an empowerment message. I'm sure it becomes part of the emcee's personality.
Lochsteppe: I admit I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to rap personae...was "Snoop Dogg" supposed to be a variant of Snoopy (the dog) (from Peanuts), or just a random coincidence? Because if he likes one-offs for names, maybe he could rename himself something like Cloward E. Lion.
funk_soul_bubby: MDGeist: Hahaha! Wow rappers really need to get over them selves.But FWIW, Snoop is way wrong. I don't care what awards he's won, there are PLENTY better than him and always have been. So I'm with you on that in this case.
geek_mars: Does this mean he'll be doing the soundtrack for The Lion King III?
LegacyDL: Looks like Puff Daddy/P Diddy/P Daddy/P Dummy/Puffy/P Oodle isn't alone anymore.
STRYPERSWINE: It took this many years to realize that talking on top of fake instruments isn't a challenge?
question_dj: vernonFL:Diplo is known for making obnoxious dance music though, not reggae. So I'm not sure how exactly this is supposed to be "roots" reggae. Someone really should get him in touch with the dudes at Trojan records and hook him up with a real reggae band.
EbolaNYC: I just saw him in Times Square last Thursday, I thought he would be tall, he looks 5'11" tops.
