SNOOP DOGG UNVEILS REINCARNATED PROJECT AND EXPLAINS SNOOP LION

In MAGAZINE, Mixtapes on August 1, 2012 at 8:41 pm

Partners with VICE on Multi-Platform Project that includes New Album, Feature-Length Documentary, Photo Book and Non-Profit Initiative

Riveting documentary accepted to the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival and will premiere on September 7th and 8th, 2012

Los Angeles, CA — Last night, Snoop Dogg unveiled the meaning behind his newest moniker, Snoop Lion, and explained his latest project,REINCARNATED. Set at New York’s famed Jamaican themed record store and restaurant, Miss Lily’s, Sway Calloway (MTV, SiriusXM) hosted the event with Snoop Lion, Diplo, Ted Chung (Snoop Dogg’s Manager, Stampede Management) and Suroosh Alvi (co-founder, VICE Media).

In conjunction with VICE, the youth media brand, the REINCARNATEDproject embodies Snoop’s recent stay on the island of Jamaica. The project includes a reggae album produced by Diplo and the Major Lazer production team, documentary, photo book and a non-profit initiative called Mind Garden.

Initially set as a trip to focus on his music in an isolated environment, the journey quickly morphed into both a musical and a spiritual awakening. “For this project, I had no intention of making a reggae album, but the spirit called me. Anytime the spirit calls you gotta know that it’s serious and real,” recalled Snoop on both the Rastafarian culture and the Jamaican people who embraced him along the journey of being reincarnated into Snoop Lion.

Snoop revealed the story behind his adopted moniker “Snoop Lion” – a title change that garnered massive press attention when announced through his social networks last week. The title was given to him by the revered Nyabinghi upon his arrival to the island. The name is derived from the Lion that appears on the Imperial Ethiopian flag and remains an honored symbol of former Ethiopian Emperor Halie Selassie I and the Rastafarians themselves.

I didn’t want to be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track…I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn’t know that until I went to the temple and received the name Snoop Lion from the Nyabingi priest,” said Snoop. “From that moment on, I started to understand why I was there and was able to create something magical in this [Reincarnated] project…something I haven’t done before in my career.

Snoop recently released his first single “La La La” from hisREINCARNATED reggae album to rave reviews. In celebration of his song and to commemorate 50 years of Jamaican independence on August 6th, Snoop has made 1962 copies of limited edition 7″ vinyls to distribute.

The riveting documentary was also just accepted to the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival and will premiere on September 7th and 8th, 2012. VICE documented Snoop’s very personal journey throughout Jamaica and his time spent with Rastafarian elders. The documentary,REINCARNATED, features never-before-seen images of Jamaica, as Snoop was granted unprecedented access to Rastafarian culture, temples and Jamaican culture.

Watch Official Trailer of REINCARNATED here:

Not only was his time documented on film, but also through awe-inspiring photos of Jamaica’s rich landscapes and beautiful people. The photos were captured by Los Angeles photographer, Willie T, and will be released as a coffee table book through VICE.

While in Jamaica, Snoop was deeply affected by the people of Jamaica and also discussed his role in the development of Mind Garden, a non-profit social initiative focusing on community gardens that will provide essential nourishment to the kids in Kingston, Jamaica. For Mind Garden, Snoop partnered with renowned businessman Jean Paul DeJoria and his JP’s Love, Peace and Happiness Foundation.

K2 World releases long awaited video for online smash “Bigger”.

London based rapper K2 World smashed onto the scene earlier this year with his charisma packed single “Bigger”, now the highly rated rapper presents the blogosphere with the single’s brand new official video.

K2 World, real name Kenneth Adu Danquah, was born on the West coast of Africa in 1986 and was brought to London at a young age, where he later resided and was schooled in East London.

The talented MC, who was formerly known as Killa K, displayed a musical talent from a young age despite his parents being keen to see their son become a professional doctor or lawyer. K2 soon began to find his footing musically, and in 2011 was introduced to Rich Boy Entertainment (via to his good friend Tinchy Styder) who swiftly signed the artist to a deal.

“Bigger” is the latest single from K2 World and sees him deliver his unique and distinctive flow over a vibrant, upbeat production. The single will be available digitally on 10/09/2012.

This was swiftly followed by his debut EP Version, which gained considerable exposure itself, certifying Axel as a definite one to watch in the electronic music world.

Axel now presents ‘Zero’, the fantastic lead single from his New Type EP. The track delves straight into the deep and dark world of British bass music, with funky house beats, exotic melodies and warped bass lines enticingly leading the way to the dance floor.
