The Snoop Lion project, which Snoop says has been in the works for a while is music that Snoop hopes to bring a more positive, relaxed vibe to the world. He admits that the transition wasn't easy however and that it baffled Dr. Dre.
"He would see me come to rehearsals with all of my Rastafari, my gear, my hair, my look. He was just peeping me out, and I let him know I was doing a reggae project and working on the album and whatnot, but he didn't really understand it until 'La La La' came out," Snoop told MTV News.
Snoop Lion says he got the Marley family's full blessing to carry on with the reggae project, and now that he's unveiled it to the world, he thinks people will finally get it. Snoop said of Dre. "So he gets it, and I got his support. He just didn't understand it because I didn't explain it to him. I wasn't tryna keep it a secret; it just wasn't time to unveil until now."
