Do I ever have a good one for you guys. Just wait until you hear this. You all know Snoop Dog, right? Remember Snoop Doggy Dog? The gaunt rapper with the long hair? If not don’t worry, I think there’s another person out there who doesn’t either, so don’t feel bad.
Anyways, Snoop Dog recently visited Jamaica and while he was partaking of the Jamaican way of life and enjoying some ganja or chronic or collie or whatever they call it these days, he started hallucinating. Yep, I kid you not. He started having weird hallucinations. Trust me, I heard it straight from the horse’s mouth.
In Snoop’s vision, he saw the late great Bob Marley and please tell me you have heard of Brother Bob, please. Bob had a long chat with Snoop and apparently even sang one his popular songs, ‘Zion Lion’ to the Dog. After he came to his senses, Snoop felt as though Marley was sending him some sort of message in his vision so he went in seek of the local Rastafarian priest. Or was it a priestess? He asked the priestess if she would like to star in some DVD reality show he was producing. Wait! I got my facts confused. It was indeed a priest that he went to see, not a priestess. He told his story to the priest and was told that he had to convert to Rastafarianism. This involved a name change and the release of a Reggae CD. He had to vow to smoke marijuana daily for meditational purposes. He reluctantly agreed to this after some arm twisting.
So our hero changed his name to, yeah you guessed it, Snoop Lion! Snoop Lion. Sure has a cute ring to it, doesn’t it? No it doesn’t. As if Snoop Dog wasn’t bad enough…it sounds dumb. But anyways, our Dog was transformed into a Lion all because of a vision he had of Bob Marley. Trust me on this one.
Yeah mon, de Lion irie!
