Reincarnated Rated 18

Determined to grow and evolve as both a human and an artist, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg takes a spiritual pilgrimage to Jamaica, and Vice Magazine filmmaker Andy Capper captures his gradual metamorphosis into Snoop Lion over the course of one profoundly transformational month. For as long as Snoop can remember, he's been rapping, but upon turning 41, the hustler lifestyle begins to take its toll on the man who turned out such hits as "Murder Was the Case," and who saw the lives of too many friends taken by violence. Now, in Trench Town, Snoop seeks the wisdom of the Niyabinghi community elders in finding a new direction, and reflects on the past and future while immersing himself in Rastafari culture. Later, in the wake of a deeply affecting meeting with the legendary Bunny Wailer, Snoop Lion emerges, and a new destiny is revealed.

This intimate documentary portrait directed by Vice Magazine editor Andy Capper follows hip hop legend Snoop Dogg as he undergoes a spiritual odyssey/career reinvention in Jamaica and emerges as the rechristened "Snoop Lion."

"The Doggfather steps away from his rapper past toward reggae and Rastafari in this engaging reflection on a major life and career shift." David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
