How many veteran emcees with a background in West Coast gangsta rap would be taken seriously if they chose to release a reggae album 20 years into their career? The answer is one: Snoop
The Long Beach native has now unveiled Reincarnated, a brand new RCA-released album, which is wholly inspired by the Rastafari movement and reggae music legends like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff among others.
Included on 16-track LP are previously-released singles "La La La," "Here Comes the King," "Lighters Up," "No Guns Allowed" and "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks." Executive Produced by Diplo, Reincarnated features notable contributions from Akon, Busta Rhymes, Chris Brown, Collie Buddz, Drake, Mavado, Miley Cyrus, Popcaan and Rita Ora, while the bulk of the album's production is handled by Major Lazer, Ariel Rechtshaid and Dre Skull.
