Snoop Lion has undergone another transformation, joining a funk band called 7 Days of Funk and changing his name to Snoopzilla.
The rapper changed his name to Snoop Lion earlier in the year as part of his conversion to Rastafarianism, releasing the album Reincarnated under the new moniker.
He has re-christened again, however, for yet another change in genre, forming a collective with Dâm-Funk – his new name paying tribute to legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins who referred to himself as Bootzilla.
7 Days Of Funk will release their debut album on December 10, with Snoopzilla saying of the project: ‘We’re the babies of the Mothership. I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career.
‘Dâm-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.’
