Snoop Lion is Damn Awesome – “Here Comes the King”

Here is a picture of Snoop Dogg:

Here is a picture of Snoop Lion:

See a difference? Looks like the same guy right? Actually not though. Snoop Dogg is the man that provides the gangsta, melodic g-funk style to the world that is the anthem for stoner-tumblrs all around.  Snoop Lion is the new man making that reggae, dub type of sound that is the anthem for stoner-tumblrs all around. Basically same person with a new revitalized outlook on life when he was rechristened Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest in Jamaica. Gonna be honest, I thought he was whack as hell when he decided to change his name and frankly, I thought it sounded stupid as hell. But just started listening to some of his new ish…damn this dude knew what was doing. I never really thought there was a difference in chill music, but you can definitely hear from Dogg to Lion.

Introducing “Here Comes the King”, produced by Major Lazer, off the expected album “Reincarnated” that should come out early 2013. Holy damn. You know those songs that you listen to for about 20 seconds and you just KNOW that it’s going to be awesome? Yup. This track right here. Blending a bit of the chill, slow reggae, with a sliver of dubstep, some female harmonizing, and the rap and you end up getting a super chill, head-bobbing banger. While not quite leaning in any specific direction, the song touches upon all the bases of its beat and doesn’t emphasize on anything specific, making for a well-rounded track. Angela Hunte, featured on the track is perfect for the chorus. The meaning of those lyrics? I’m surprised there isn’t one swear word, but it sounds a lot like everything Snoop is saying is a response to the haters who think his new stuff is whack. I don’t even know what to say about the track really, I’m just so taken aback by how good Snoop Lion is sounding. I thought the name change was stupid but on the real, just think about it. The man, behind all that weed, knows what he’s doing. Going from a pretty damn good rapper, like a top Dogg and taking up a higher calling into a Lion? Snoop Lion beats Snoop Lion. He doesn’t have much out yet, but keep an eye out, the King is coming.

LYRICS:
[Intro : Angela Hunte]
Show no fear, we made it clear
That the warrios are commign and we no play

[Hook : Angela Hunte]
We at war with the army of haters
And when we kill em we just smoke ’em like papers
Somebody get me my crown cuz I’m feeling it now
You might be a lord; but here comes the king x2

[Verse 1: Snoop Lion]
Here I come a steppin inna the dance
Here I come a steppin inna the dance
Posted up the wall here inna mi stance
Posted up the wall here inna mi stance
We never fail, we only shine with brilliance
One king one faith one religion
And if you hear me come and join the revolution
One king one faith one religion
And if you hear me come and join the revolution

We at war with the army of haters
And when we kill em we just smoke em like papers
Somebody get me my crown cuz I’m feeling it now
You might be a lord; but here comes the king
You might be a lord; but here comes the king

[Verse 2: Snoop Lion]
They gonna love me
Call me black chutney
All gold chrome with the diamonds in the back
Lil homies in the front dont know how to act
We comin deep and you never see us smiling
10 million strong and it will rumble when we are riding
Two shots up for my africans
Been around the world and back again
Feel so good gotta let me in
Power to the people let em kiss the ring
Bow – here comes the king

[Hook: Angela Hunte]
We at war with the army of haters
And when we kill em we just smoke em like papers
Somebody get me my crown cuz I’m feeling it now
You might be a lord; but here comes the king
You might be a lord; but here comes the king

[Verse 3: Snoop Lion]
They know me in japan and pakistan
Ganja makes me lord of all the land
Im royalty no need for me to wear a crowm
Born a rebel then I became a man
I heard a voice, he said that I would understand
One king one faith one religion
And if you love me come and join the revolution
One king one faith one religion
And if you love me come and join the revolution

[Hook : Angela Hunte]
We at war with the army of haters
And when we kill em we just smoke em like papers
Somebody get me my crown cuz I’m feeling it now
You might be a lord; but here comes the king x2
