The artist formely known as Snoop Dogg announced last night that he is no longer a rapper, and will focus on creating reggae music under the name Snoop Lion.
"With no disrespect to other rappers, but they can't f**k with me in rap," he added.
"I've won every accolade you can in rap, they call me 'Uncle Snoop' in rap. When you're an uncle, it's time to find something new ... I want to feel like a kid again."
Can't hate the man for wanting to branch out. He has seen a level of success experimenting with different sounds in recent years, so it only makes sense to attempt something fresh. His upcoming album under the name Snoop Lion will be "Reincarnated." Take a listen to his first single and let the BITM crew know what you think...
