Maybe "dead" is too strong a word.
He's in a coma? Like one of those patients on General Hospital who inevitably has a darker and more mysterious twin brother.
Coma is harsh, too.
Let's just say Snoop Dogg is on hiatus.
Or on sabbatical. Or on shore leave.
Put. To. Sleep.
And this was all self-inflicted!!
That's right, America's favorite rapper just took a figurative 14 hour flight to Taiwan for one of those low-cost species-change operations you maybe saw a segment about on Nightline.
And now the dee-oh-double-gee turned into a pussy! A pussycat, really. The FIERCEST kitty in the jungle!
He is Snoop Lion!
Ahh, the circle of life!
The artist formerly known as Snoop Dog is a born-again Rastafarian.
In fact, he just released a reggae album called Reincarnation because he claims to be the reincarnated spirit of Bob Marley!!
Hmm. That could explain a lot.
We LOVE Snoop regardless of his surname!!
Rapper or reggae artist. Gangster or lover. Blunt smoker or… blunt smoker.
Ha! Like that will ever change.
