Snoop Dogg has debuted a trailer for his documentary film "Reincarnated". In the sneak peek, the rapper-turned-reggae artist shares the story behind the making of his new album of the same name and his transformation into Snoop Lion. "F*** Snoop Dogg... All that s*** be out here. Rastafari called me," so he says of his trip to Jamaica which inspires him to become his new Reggae persona.
In the video, Snoop states that he is the reincarnation of Bob Marley as claiming, "I always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated." Explaining that he's already tired of rapping, the 40-year-old artist meets a high priest in Jamaica to get a spiritual enlightenment. "No more. You are the light; you are the lion," so the priest tells him.
In partnership with Snoopadelic Films, VICE Films presents "Reincarnated". The documentary follows Snoop as he embarks on a journey to Jamaica to record an album with Diplo. While there, Snoop, who finds himself embraced by the Jamaican people, is positively impacted by Rastafarian culture and eventually becomes reincarnated as Snoop Lion.
The documentary will premiere during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival in September.
