Snoop has joined forces with Reed’s Ginger Brew and Causes.com to create “The Minds Garden Project” which aims to feed young Jamaicans. The project will provide Jamaican residents with the tools and resources needed to grow their own food – fruits and vegetables.
Work done under the project can already be felt in the Trench Town and Tivoli Gardens area of Kingston, Jamaica.
Snoop, the good Rastafarian, said “When I went to Jamaica we took time to visit these communities in Kingston, and I was deeply affected by the poverty and lack of good food available to the children. No child should go hungry. After all the inspiration Jamaica had provided me, I felt compelled to create a program to give back to the community.”
Snoop Lion, formerly Snoop Dogg, has dropped the official video of La La La in time for Halloween listening. The number has been doing the rounds for months and now finally has an official status. It is a part of Snoop’s upcoming album “Reincarnated”.
The album “Reincarnated” will trace Snoop’s evolution to his new found purpose as signified by the shift to Lion. The artist has embraced Rastafarianism and even considers himself to be a reincarnation of Bob Marley.
Take a look at this Eli Roth directed video and tell us if Snoop still has it in him to spit verses like he used to. On our part, we want this Lion to keep roaring.
According to MC Kurupt, a trip to Jamaica has everything to do with Snoop’s change of name from Dogg to Lion, it’s an upliftment, an elevation and the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg is taking his fans on that ride with him.
Says Kurupt -
“It’s all Snoop,” ”We’re men first and Snoop elevates, and every time he elevates, he gives us an opportunity to be a part of that elevation through his music.” ”He had a very spiritual [and] uplifting [experience] when he went to Jamaica, and he’s expressing it through his music, and you’ve gotta support that,” ”I love Snoop and where he is right now. I think that he’s a lot more calm about himself and things that he does, but it’s all still Snoop.”
On the music front, Kurupt is preparing for a November 7 release of his mixtape Money, Bitches, Power. We all look forward to his new work and also to a lot more classics from the “Gin and Juice” artist who’s now a bonafide reggae rapper with cool dreadlocks.
