SNOOP Dogg changes his name

SNOOP Dogg

SNOOP Dogg has officially dropped the Dogg act and upgraded his name to “Snoop Lion”.

The rapper says he underwent a spiritual and artistic rebirth while in Jamaica where he was given the new moniker by Rastafarian priests.

“I didn’t know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, ‘Snoop Dogg.’ And he looked me in my eyes and said, ‘No more. You are the light; you are the lion.’ From that moment on, it’s like I had started to understand why I was there.”

The 40-year-old said as a result of his reincarnation, his new album will be a reggae record as he finds rap no longer “a challenge.”

Oh boy, here we go. I am not high enough to understand this.

Tupac performs at Coachella as a hologram

From Yahoo!: Tupac died in 1996, three years before the first Coachella festival took place, but that didn’t stop him–or at least his bizarrely lifelike 3D image–from joining Dr. Dre onstage during Dre’s much-hyped festival finale this year.

About halfway through Dre’s 70-minute set, what appeared to be an actual shirtless Tupac appeared onstage, greeted the crowd with “What up, Coachella?”–and then traded rhymes with Dre’s co-billed Coachella partner, the flesh-and-blood Snoop Dogg, on “Come With Me,” “Hail Mary,” and “Gangsta Party.” Concertgoers at first seemed confused–the audience momentarily grew abnormally silent–and that confusion only increased when Tupac suddenly vaporized and vanished from the stage as quickly as he had materialized. All eyes were on him, so to speak, and then, POOF–‘Pac was gone.

Watch the haunting video here. Warning: Video has swear words.

The implications of holograms becoming commonplace scares the piss out of me. Will we ever have to say goodbye?
