Words by Jesse Serwer—

Snoop Lion Reincarnated

After nearly a year of hype, Snoop Lion’s reggae reinvention Reincarnated drops in a week. Love the Dogg, but still skeptical about the Lion? Noisey, the online video channel from Vice, is offering a stream of the album you want to love but love to hate on, in the form of a YouTube video intercut with commentary from Snoop.

Miami x Vice: “Fresh Off The Boat” Visits Chef Creole

Chef Creole Fresh off the Boat

On the occasion that vacationers in South Beach head for a meal in “the real Miami,” they generally flock to Calle Ocho in Little Havana, home to long-established, world-famous Cuban restaurants like Versailles. Little Haiti, a few miles north, doesn’t attract many tourists but one place in particular has become a magnet for a unique mixture of local Haitians, Miami seafood aficionados and hip-hop celebrities: Chef Creole.

Row Like a King: Watch Beenie Man’s “Super Model” Video

Beenie Man Super Model video

Yesterday, the self-proclaimed King of the Dancehall released a new video for his tune “Super Model,” and it’s no surprise that the only modesty in King Beenie’s video is the shabby rowboat he has filled with fly, half-naked women. The song is on Dre Skull’s Kling Klang riddim, which has already spawned videos from Popcaan (for “So We Do It”) and Tifa (for “Champion Bubbler.”)

Bunny Wailer and Snoop Lion

Bunny Wailer’s gripes with Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion and his representation of Rastafari culture have become a hot topic recently, even making gossip website TMZ. “Fire will bun fi him,” the site suggested—props on your patois, Harvey—if Snoop doesn’t make things right with Bunny and the Rastafari Millennium Council, which has also aired grievances with Snoop and his Vice-produced Reincarnated documentary—and asked him to stop calling himself “Lion.”

Back in Green: Snoop Dogg’s ‘Reincarnated’ Trailer

Words by Jesse Serwer—

By now, you’ve probably heard a little something about the album, Reincarnated, that Snoop Dogg has been working on in Jamaica (with Diplo/Major Lazer and other collaborators we’re not yet at liberty to name), for which Vice is also filming an accompanying documentary. While we were off on our own 4/20 mission Friday, it seems that the parties involved took the smokers’ holiday as an opportunity to release a little teaser for the project in the form of a “4/20 message” from Snoop. Though the visuals reinforce what we’ve been hearing about Snoop’s immersion into Jamaican culture (and his re-immersion into the plant he not too long ago vowed he quit), the sound of the project remains a mystery—the clip is soundtracked by “Satta Massagana.”
