For those of you who missed the memo, Snoop Dogg is now known as Snoop Lion & DJ Snoopadelic. The new Snoops were created as part of his upcoming new album “Reincarnated,” which drops sometime in early 2013. Here’s more about the album & the new names:

On July 31, 2012, Snoop introduced a new stage name, Snoop Lion. He told reporters that he was rechristened Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest in Jamaica.[25] In response to Frank Ocean coming out, Snoop said hip hop was ready to accept a gay rapper.[26] Snoop recorded an original song for the 2012 fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2, titled “Knocc ‘Em Down”; and makes a special appearance as a non-playable character in “The Snoop Dogg Stage” arena.

In September of the same year, Snoop released a compilation of electronic music entitled Loose Joints under the moniker DJ Snoopadelic, stating the influence of George Clinton’s Funkadelic.[29] In an interview with The Fader magazine, Snoop stated “Snoop Lion, Snoop Dogg, DJ Snoopadelic—they only know one thing: make music that’s timeless and bangs.”

In December 2012 Snoop released his second single from Reincarnated, “Here Comes the King”. It was also announced that Snoop worked a deal with RCA Records to release Reincarnated in early 2013. Source
