Date for Snoop Lion's album announced
The man formally known as Snoop Dogg is ready to unleash his new reggae sound. BET reports Snoop Lion has announced his new CD, dubbed "Reincarnated," will be released April 23 and will be a mix of peaceful messages and reggae beats.
"Reincarnated" will follow the release of his documentary of the same name, which is set to come out in select theaters March 15, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The documentary, made by VICE Films and Snoopadelic Films, follows Snoop through his transformation from rapper to reggae Rastafarian.
Even though the film will be hitting cities in mid-March, it has actually been done for quite some time. Fans first got a taste of the documentary when in debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.
BET reports Snoop's new album will release "No Guns Allowed" as the next single, and many tracks on the CD will feature cameos by a slew of talented artists. Entertainers like Drake, Chris Brown, T.I., Rita Ora, Akon and Busta Rhymes all lend their voices for the upcoming LP. Dance-hall musicians including Popcaan and Mavado also make appearances on the CD.
