Snoop Dogg is now Snoop Lion

SNOOP Dogg wants you to know that he's tired of hip-hop, is Bob Marley reincarnated and is embracing reggae instead of the culture of guns he once rapped about.

Also, he's got a new name: Snoop Lion.

The artist said at a news conference in New York that he was "born again" during a visit to Jamaica in February and is ready to make music that his "kids and grandparents can listen to".

The former gangster rapper is releasing a reggae album called Reincarnated. He said that in Jamaica, he connected with Bob Marley's spirit and is now "Bob Marley reincarnated".

Bob Marley's son Rohan attended the conference and gave Snoop his blessing.
