Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion

ABOUT SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION
Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion is multi-platinum artist and entertainment icon. With over 20 years in the industry, Snoop’s ability to stay at the forefront of popular culture and new technology through hit records, brand partnerships, innovative digital strategies, philanthropy and more has resulted in unwavering relevance.
Most recently, Snoop has been making headlines with his upcoming REINCARNATED project and announcement of his new moniker, Snoop Lion - which has been the most controversial journey of a modern day icon. His spiritual awakening as Snoop Lion grew from his recent trip to Jamaica - where the Jamaican people and culture positively affected him. Snoop spent a significant amount of time in Jamaica recording his upcoming REINCARNATED album, which was also documented with a film of the same name. An official selection of the critically acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival, the highly anticipated VICE Films/Snoopadelic Films release, REINCARNATED, chronicles his illustrious career dating back to his beginnings and leading up to hisspiritual awakening as Snoop Lion.
REINCARNATED is a multifaceted project, which includes a reggae-influenced album executive produced by Diplo and Major Lazer, releasing in conjunction with Berhane Sound System, Mad Decent, VICE Music and RCA Records; a feature-length film; a photo book; and a self-sustainable gardening initiative named Mind Gardens. The REINCARNATED film hit theaters nationwide in Spring 2013 and is now available on iTunes, Amazon and in Best Buy retailers. The REINCARNATED album was released on April 23, 2013.

Hip-Hop group Zion I continue to forge new ground musically on their latest LP Shadowboxing, a beat-heavy hip-hop album decidedly grittier than past projects. Always pushing the literal—and figurative—needle forward, the duo, consisting of emcee Zumbi and producer Amp Live, have once again created something experimental and heartfelt. Shadowboxing features guests such as Bassnectar, Grouch and Eligh, Collie Buddz and Goapele.

A move from the live instrumentation of their last record, Shadowboxing enlists a range of producers such as Traxamillion, Timeline, DexBeats, Minnesota, who bring an unconventional, eclectic flavor to the album. With its futuristic beat, "Float," produced by Santa Cruz up-and-comer Minnesota, is reminiscent of Zion I's earlier work, Mind Over Matter. On "Bounce," Bassnectar masters the manipulating of frequencies and crushing basslines. "I just did my thing with the image of a huge crowd going ham in my mind while I penned the verse," explains Zumbi of recording the track.

Thematically, Shadowboxing is signature Zion I: "This is an album about metaphorical kicks and throws at oneself," explains Zumbi, "looking inward at the shadow self, and seeking awareness in the darkness of one's own psyche."

To support the album, Zion I will hit 30 cities from Brooklyn to Boulder and Atlanta to Orlando with Santa Cruz Dubstep DJ Minnesota for the "2012 Shadowboxing Tour."

Since 1999, Zion I has released seven critically acclaimed LPs, including Mind Over Matter (1998), Deep Water Slang (2000), True & Livin' (2003), Break of Dawn (2004), The Take Over (2009), and Atomic Clock (2010). They also have two highly acclaimed albums under the name [Zion I and The Grouch with long time collaborator The Grouch, Hereos in the City of Dope and Hereos in the Healing of the Nation. Voted best Bay Area hip-hop group by the SF Weekly numerous times, Zion I have been featured in media outlets from XXL, The Source, Vibe, YRB, 944, Prefixmag.com, Popmatters, 7+7, SF Chronicle, and SF Bay Guardian.
