We’ve been hearing about this album that Snoop Lion has been working on with Major Lazer for months now, and today Reincarnated is finally here. Was it worth the hype? After hearing the full thing, we have to say yes. There are definitely some bangers on this album that real reggae fans need in their life. Standout tracks include “Fruit Juice” featuring Mr. Vegas, “Smoke The Weed” featuring Collie Buddz, and “Remedy” featuring Chris Brown and Busta Rhymes. Oh, and how could I forget “Boulevard” featuring Jahdan Blakkamore? But don’t take my word for it, check the full album preview and then go to iTunes, buy Reincarnated, and support reggae music.

Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg is set to release his highly anticipated new album titled “Reincarnated” on April 23, and which features such big names collaborators as Drake, Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, T.I., Akon, and yes Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora,  and Snoop’s own daughter Cori B. Some have criticized Snoop for his new moniker, others insist that he’s making a mockery of the Rastafari culture and should cease immediately, but Snoop holds firm: “We were searching for true reggae music and the message of peace and hope it reflects, It’s so much a part of who I am, and this record is all about paying homage and giving respect to those who created and love reggae music, and hopefully introducing it to a whole new audience. I feel truly honored to make this album and respect to all who blazed the path for me.” Check the complete breakdown of all 16 tracks on the album (hmm… wonder if there’s any bonus cuts?) along with a glimpse of Snoop speaking on the inspiration for his latest single, “No Guns Allowed.” Video & Tracklist After The Jump…

Snoop Rocks Lionfest at SXSW

Snoop Lion Premieres Reincarnated Then Mashes Up SXSW w Major Lazer & Mavado

Yesterday was a big day for the man called Snoop Lion. First his film Reincarnated had its official U.S. premiere at the Paramount Theater in Austin Texas. (The film opens nationwide today; check SnoopLion.com for show times and locations.) Then later that night he headlined Lionfest at SXSW’s VICEland stage, sharing the bill with Major Lazer—the team that produced his Reincarnated album—and Mavado, who collabos with Snoop on the tune “Lighters Up,” as well as DJ Max Glazer of BKNY’s Federation Sound. After all the debates, the skeptics, and the naysayers had spoken their minds, it all came down to Snoop Lion showing what he could do on stage for the first time ever. And the capacity crowd was definitely showing love to the Lion, who transformed into Snoop Dogg and back again many times through the night. Aside from performing cuts from the Reincarnated album like “La La La,” “Here Comes The King,” “Lighters Up,” and “No Guns Allowed,” Snoop also kicked reggae remixes of classics like “Gin & Juice,” “Drop It Like it’s Hot” and “Young Wild & Free.” He also covered Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” as well as “Funkin’ For Jamaica” as well as bringing out Daz and Kurupt of Tha Dogg Pound for some straight-up Death Row /DPG rap jams. But Lionfest wasn’t limited to reggae or rap— Snoop even did straight-up versions of “Jump Around” by House of Pain and Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock & Roll.” Check the photo gallery above.

Why Is Bunny Wailer Flipping on Snoop?

Why Is Bunny Wailer Flipping on Snoop?

We Thought It Was All Good Between Jah Bunny and Snoop Lion

If you’ve see the Snoop Lion documentary, Reincarnated, you know that Snoop and Bunny Wailer got together and burned a peace pipe at Bunny’s house in Kingston. So it came as some surprise to read today’s TMZ item stating that Snoop was “Rejected” by Jah Bunny, an original member of the Wailing Wailers. Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism” — and has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.” On second thought, maybe it shouldn’t come as such a surprise. Later on in the film, Bunny showed up at a recording studio with a stern face, asking tough questions about Snoop Lion’s intentions and whether he was really true to the whole Rasta thing. Apparently Snoop’s response was good enough to convince Bunny to jump in the vocal booth and record some vocals with Diplo. But it would seem that Bunny has since rethought that decision.

WATCH THIS: Snoop Lion “Reincarnated” Extended Trailer

Check The Brand New Trailer For The Film That Tells How The Dogg Became A Lion

Earlier this week, the Snoop Lion documentary Reincarnated was screened for a small group of media at the Sony headquarters in midtown Manhattan. After seeing the movie in full, an old Wailers lyric came to mind: “Half the story has never been told.” It may seem strange to see a gangsta rap icon from the LBC saying Jah Rastafari and singing over reggae beats. Some have even called it a gimmick. (And when Snoop released his “Hot Pockets” video with showers of pepperoni raining from the sky, it was hard to argue with them—unless there’s an ital version of Hot Pockets on the way.) But despite the apparent contradictions, don’t make up your mind until you see this film, which will hit theaters in 2013. Snoop’s visit to Alpha Boys School in Kingston, freestyling over a live version of “Rockfort Rock,” or his impromptu session with Cutty Corn in a hole-in-the-wall studio near Tivoli Gardens (not to mention his Mind Gardens project) puts this whole Snoop Lion thing in a new light. And as for his baptism as Berhane in a Niyabinghi temple (seen above), well you’ll have to judge for yourself. Who says you can’t teach an old Dogg new tricks? Video After The Jump…
