We told you about Snoop’s reincarnation into Snoop Lion in the last few days. Still, if you were worried that you won’t be hearing the legendary rapper’s greatest hits on the island, you were wrong. A statement posted on the official Hungarian Sziget site (Google translated version here) comes to clear things up for all of us.

Well, it would seem that things go much further than just a new reggae album. Snoop Dogg has decided to go all the way, and was christened Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest when going to Jamaica.
