Snoop Dogg is not the first celebrity to change his name.  Prince went from Prince to a symbol, Puff Daddy has had like 23 names, Chris Monroe changed his name  to C-Moe and now Snoop has become Snoop Lion.

According to the Washington Post, the rapper/actor spent some time in Jamaica, where he was 'born again'.  Is that code for stoned again?  Nonetheless Snoop claims to be sick of hip hop and will soon be releasing a reggae album.  Yeah  Man!
