A West and MID West rivalry.. That's what I'd like to see.

i hope they fight through rap songs!!

Oh, why can't we return to the glory days, where people were shooting and killing each other? That was a great time.

No matter who you side with in this, I think we can all agree that the name "Snoop Lion" is gayer than a tangerine wearing ass-less chaps while playing french horn in a bath house.

/And I mean "gay" in the elementary-school perjorative sense, not the real way, NTTAWWT

When did Snoop change his name?
 
2012-08-10 01:24:28 PM  
I see nothing that resembles mocking in the article, subby.

I just listened to a bit of Snoop Lion's "La La La," the first single from the album.

He has absolutely no flow over this type of music. It's as awkward as when KRS-One showed up on Goldie's "Digital."

"It's interesting," 50 told THR. "Of course, there will be some people who connect to it and there will be some people that run from it - I don't know how his little league team's parents will feel about his new persona. But again, it's a persona - these are the choices he's created for himself creatively. And, you know, I think it will work."

Ohhhhhhhhhhh SNAP!

Everytime I see Snoop lion, all I can think about is a gay lion named Tangiers.

Snoop officially announced his new "Lion" moniker at the end of July, explaining that the change spawns from time spent in Jamaica, where claims to have discovered his inner Rastafarian.

People still listen to rap? After 3 decades of listening to black folks (and some WGL white folks) who cannot sing...maybe its time to move on.....
 
2012-08-10 03:05:49 PM  
Isn't Lion one of the highest honors in Rasta? Wouldn't this be like Tom Cruise converting to Christianity and calling himself Saint Cruise or Pope Tom? Isn't the bigger issue that we are letting people pick their own flattering nicknames and just going with it?

I, for one, eagerly await the mightly Snoop-Mane, a dread beard that George Clinton and Hammurabi would envy.
 
2012-08-10 03:56:24 PM  
Why is 50 cent still 50 cent? With all the money he has made, shouldn't he change his name to C note?

Why Lion? I'd have gone with a funnier name, like Snoop Moose, or Snoop Caiman, or Snoop Wobbegong.

Just listened to his new song, and it's not that bad, really. The only thing is, the beat seems to speed up and slow down. Or it's just way to fast for the groove to really flow. If it was slowed just a bit to get the groove right, it'd be so much better.

FTFA (cracked me up):

50 admits that Snoop has the cred to back up his recent change. He has been promoting the marijuana-toking lifestyle since he got into the game.

Maybe he's really a huge Bill Waterson fan and this is just a step towards eventually naming himself Calvin Tiger. Or something....
