Hot! Kurupt Explains Snoop Dogg’s Name Change

Kurupt recently gave an insight into Snoop Dogg’s decision to change his name.

Snoop changed his alias to Snoop Lion, in conjunction with working on his Reggae inspired album,Reincarnated.

Now, one of Snoop Lion’s long-standing friends and rap associates has come forward to explain this reinvention. Kurupt explained the reasoning behind Snoop’s name change recently.

Kurupt spoke to MTV’s Rap Fix Live about the West Coast rap legend’s decision to take on a new persona. He explained that the change of name did not signify a change of personality or identity.

“It’s all Snoop,” said Kurupt. “We’re men first and Snoop elevates, and every time he elevates, he gives us an opportunity to be a part of that elevation through his music.”

Kurupt explained that Snoop’s trip to Jamaica gave him a different outlook on life.

“He had a very spiritual [and] uplifting [experience] when he went to Jamaica, and he’s expressing it through his music, and you’ve gotta support that,” he said.

“I love Snoop and where he is right now. I think that he’s a lot more calm about himself and things that he does, but it’s all still Snoop.”
