SNOOP DOGG CHANGES HIS NAME AND STYLE OF MUSIC FOR CHILDREN

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr. has changed his name from Snoop Dogg to Lion, and is hoping to give his children music they can enjoy. “Rap isn’t challenging; it’s not appealing,” said the rapper at a news conference in New York City on Monday. “Reggae was calling … it’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve got to give [my kids] something. That’s what you do when you’re wise.”

Snoop also commented on the negative effect that guns have imposed on various communities. “It’s so tragic that people are doing stupid things with guns,” said Snoop Lion.

As such, the musician and his daughter Cori Broadus have collaborated on a song called “No Guns Allowed.”

“No guns allowed in here tonight, we’re going to have a free for all, no fights” are the lyrics to the reggae-infused track.

Snoop is the proud father of three children. Cori, Snoop’s only daughter, works in the entertainment industry as a singer.

    I think he’s having a mid life crisis. He hangs out w/ the younger crowd now too. Time to hang it up Snoop. No offense, but i don’t think the reggae community wants you lol. It takes more than smoking weed

    When they start to change their names, it means that their time is UP! (hands Snoop a certificate)….Thank you for your contribution to the art of hip hop and may you use your knowledge as a resource to up and coming MCs!

    Lion? Reggae? Snoop, just retire.

    It’s funny that NOW these rappers are seeing the influence some of their music has. But before they weren’t hearing it.
    I tell ya, what you listen to on the radio is not just words, it’s spirit
