Alright, guys, get ready for some of the strangest music news of all time: Snoop Dogg has officially changed his stage name to…Snoop Lion. But why? The rapper says he was “born again” during a visit to Jamaica in January and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to”. When we heard the news, the first thing that popped into our heads was the fact that in a lot of his songs, he drops his own name, so will he have to change the lyrics to fit his new image? We’re saving Snoop the trouble and swapping out “Dogg” for “Lion” in three of his biggest hits:
“Big Snoop Lion / Can you be my doctor? / Can you fix me up? / Can you wipe me down?”
2. Drop It Like It’s Hot
“I hang out tough, I’m a real Bo$$ / Big Snoop Lion, yeah, he’s so sharp”
1. Who Am I? (What’s My Name?)
“From the depths of the sea, back to the block / Snoop Lion-y Lion, funky as the, the, The D.O.C.”
What do you guys think of Snoop’s name change? Can you change any other of his lyrics for us?
