After a trip to Jamaica in which he became a Rastafarian, rapper Snoop Dogg changed his name to Snoop Lion and began work on a reggae album. Now that he’s proven that he’s not that great at reggae, Snoop Lion is now working on a pure funk album, and for the endeavor, he’s changing his name to Snoopzilla.
Lots of celebrities periodically write kid’s books, but it’s usually about sweet things like naps and kitty cats and princesses. But then there’s Snoop Dogg, who is writing a kid’s book, but he’s writing a book that educates kids about marijuana. Because of course he is.
On the last day of the Coachella music festival in southern California, Snoop Dogg got one more chance to perform alongside Tupac Shakur. But they didn’t have to exhume Tupac’s bones to make the appearance, they just had to use holographic technology. I don’t know, a zombie Tupac would have also been cool.
To coincide with this year’s Coachella festival, Snoop Dogg is releasing Rolling Words: A Smokable Songbook, which will be printed entirely on hemp seed paper, Gawker reports. Naturally, non-toxic ink is used to print Snoop’s “classic” lyrics and signature phrases. The book’s spine is held together with a match-striking surface. Oh, and the pages are perforated.
It’s intellectual and smokable. Pass that shit.
