The rapper said: "I knew nothing until I went to the temple where the priest asked my name and I said, 'Snoop Dogg' and he looked into my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light. You're the Lion '. I always said I was the reincarnation of Bob Marley. "
"I had no intention of going to Jamaica and do a reggae album. Spirit called me, and when the spirit calls, you know it's serious. So I explained what I wanted. Do not wanna be in a Snoop Dogg reggae band. I want to bury me Snoop Dogg and Snoop make the Lion, "said Snoop.
