Forget the birds and the bees.
When Snoop Lion’s children grow up, he wants to sit them down and chat about the buds and the buzz.
"It's not that I would ever push weed on our kids," the rapper formerly known as Snoop Dogg said in the January issue of GQ, "but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won't get nothing put in their sh-t or overdose or trying some sh-t that ain't clean."
Snoop changed his name to Snoop Lion in July, explaining that he had had a spiritual awakening while he was traveling through Jamaica.
"I didn't want to be Snoop Dogg on a reggae track. I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn't know that until I went to the temple and received the name Snoop Lion from the Nyabinghi priest," he explained at a press conference July 30. "From that moment on, I started to understand why I was there and was able to create something magical in this [Reincarnated] project, something I haven't done before in my career."
