Snoop Lion Leaves Reggae Behind

The name Clavin Cordozar Broadus Junior is not popular. The 41-year-old Broadus made his name, or rather, his moniker, Snoop Dogg, by being one of the best rappers of all time.

Not long ago, he turned to reggae and Rastafari, did an album and, most controversially, ditched the name that made him a star. He was now to be called Snoop Lion.

The reggae album, Reincarnated, did not reach the dizzying heights of his rap efforts but it got him noticed in a close-knit group of practitioners who expound the power of the genre for influencing the spirit.

Fast forward a bit, and it seems Snoop has ditched reggae.

Now he's gone back to funk. With the change has come, another name.

Snoop Dog-turned-Lion, is now Snoopzilla.

It is believed the name is a tribute to legendary funk bassist, Bootsy Collins, who's nickname is Bootzilla.

The almost-reggae singer changed his name a year after acquiring the moniker, Snoop Lion, to coincide with the release of his new album, 7 Days of Funk, which he recorded with groove singer Dam-Funk.

Putting Up A Resistance To Snoop Lion

I remember as a young yout when my family would have parties and hang out sessions at our small one bedroom apartment, and the soulful sounds of Beres Hammond and Gregory Isaacs would echo throughout the building, prompting neighbors and friends to come by and turn a small gathering into a straight up party.Those sounds are what defined my childhood in a sense, as our Guyanese cultures and traditions didn’t stay in Guyana, but only grew as we became Americans. I knew “What One Dance Can Do” as I watched my mother and father rhythmically move to “If I Don't Have You” and coincidentally nine months later, my sister was born. It was the sweet reggae sounds that made me feel good; it was soothing and above all else, about love and having fun.
