Didn’t Snoop Dogg just change his name to Snoop Lion? Nevertheless, you may now call him Snoopzilla. Apparently this all has to do with his new album 7 Days of Funk as the Snoopmeister has just dropped a new single from it called “Faden Away.”
Rolling Stone says the name change “was inspired by Parliament-Funkadelic bass maestro Bootsy Collins, who sometimes used the nickname Bootzilla.”
“We’re the babies of the Mothership,” Snoopzilla said in a statement. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”
Then again maybe Snoop’s just going through the same phase Sean Combs, Puff Daddy, Diddy, and P. Diddy did.
