50 Cent Supports Snoop Dogg's Transition To Reggae
Fif says he thinks Snoop Lion's transition to reggae will work.
In preparation for his upcoming reggae album, Reincarnated, Snoop Dogg has decided to go through the full transformation of becoming a reggae artist, even changing his name to Snoop Lion.
During and interview with The Hollywood Reporter, 50 Cent gave his take on Snoop's transition from gangster rap to reggae.
"It's interesting," 50 said. "Of course, there will be some people who connect to it and there will be some people that run from it—I don't know how his little league team's parents will feel about his new persona. But again, it's a persona—these are the choices he's created for himself creatively. And, you know, I think it will work."
50 noted that Snoops approach will work for him because regardless of what persona he takes on, his theme will still be about the use of and/or selling of weed.
"In the very beginning, that was his consistent theme," Fif said. "He had the weed, and everything else was there. [But] for hip-hop culture, it will work, because there's enough of that going on; Wiz Khalifa, his entire theme is that. I've consistently seen artists sell 500,000 copies with that as a theme: Redman, Method Man, Styles P."
Snoop Lion's Reincarnated project is supposed to drop later this year.
