This is a very interesting look into Snoop Lion's inner psyche, but it falls short in that we see more of what he wants to be like than what he is actually like right now. Peeks into the lack of full self-disclosure are snippets of Snoop's reaction when asked about why he feels vulnerable after giving up his guns. It is undoubtedly very difficult to shake off a past like Snoop's, and I admire him for trying to do so, but he apparently has some way to go, as reflected by Bunny Wailer's public renunciation of Snoop as a Rastafarian even before this documentary came out. It would have been much more interesting to have the opposing view of Snoop from the Rastafarian perspective, good and bad, as this superstar is trying to reinvent himself. In the end, it is more of a self-serving wannabe paean than a real documentary. I gave it three stars because it is fascinating to watch Snoop talk about himself and his past and there is at least the appearance of some genuine insight during some very good and entertaining segments.

Many people say this move was a complete marketing gimmick. It was simply not that. There was an intention of expanding his fan base with this perhaps and making some extra cash but it wasn't simply money-driven. The actual documentary was done by Diplo, Vice/Noisey and they did a great job (as usual). A bit expensive but it was worth for a 3 day rental- one of the few movies I rented that I actually watched more than once- I watched this 2 1/2 times! It is very entertaining especially if you like Snoop, mainstream rap, Jamaican reggae/dancehall scene, and seeing people smoke many chalices, blunts, and pipes filled with Cali and Jamaican bud (throughout the entire movie). I can see why some just label it as Snoop doing his regular thing and putting a reggae "twist" on it- it was a bit deeper than that for sure. He connects with the people he interacts with. He goes to many places such as Trench Town, Tivoli Gardens, Blue Mountain Range, and Port Antonio- but it isn't just about him and his experience in Jamaica- he reflects on 2Pac's & Nate Dogg's deaths (the Nate Dogg funeral footage was fantastic) and in particular I enjoyed the whole "No Guns Allowed" buildup story (Snoop getting arrested and his family being detained) and then him and his family in the studio in Jamaica recording the song. The production by Major Lazer was absolutely stunning as far as the beats went. The "Fruit Juice" song with Mr. Vegas with a remixed "Sleng Teng" riddim is one of the best songs and is featured in this as well as "No Guns", "Here Comes the King", "Lighters Up", and "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks". Too bad he had a falling out with Bunny Wailer this year pertaining to this film- I hope they can make amends as Bob Marley's sons and widow had no problem with what Snoop tried to become: "Berhane/Snoop Lion". I would say 3 1/2 solid stars rounded up to 4. Awesome.

I thought this was going to be a reincarnation of Snoop, some kind of change. I'm a big fan of his but this is just another video of him smokin, only he is in Jamaica doing it.

Outstanding story about the legendary rapper from the tough streets of the LBC, Snoop Dogg transforming to Snoop Lion. There's no describing the documentary - you must see it for yourself.

East Side up!

I don't listen to much hip-hop, and I don't think I had heard any of Snoop Lion's music before watching this film. So I am not the target audience for this movie, a documentary covering Snoop's journey to Jamaica to recreate himself. That said, I'd like to think i could appreciate any film which had something worth saying. Not much of that here. I basically learned that Snoop Lion lived a life as a street hustler, had a solid career in hip-hop, and found inner peace in Jamaican Rastafarianism. Well, that and he smokes a lot of marijuana. A whole lot. I mean, a staggering, unbelievable, truly brain-numbing lot. If the thought of seeing ganja puffed on screen gives you the giggles, you might like this film. For the rest of us, there isn't a lot of substance on display. I'm disappointed because Snoop Lion has likability and laid-back charisma, and the bits of his early work we see here shows real talent. I wish we had learned more about Snoop Lion's life and work before his pilgrimage. A straight biography would have been much more interesting then this lazy excursion into pot glamorization.

Snoop goes to Jamaica to express himself in a reggae way. Ok. So he has access to the best studios and The Players in Jamaica. I would have expected to see dreads or Jamaicans in those studios in control of their creative process. Who are the producers? Mostly young white men with a few token light skinned blacks. I dont see what these young white hipsters ( aaargh even the way they say bro sounds wierd) are doing so high up in the Jamaican "scene." Obviously imported to Jamaica so where are their cultural roots?. Except if the party is over and was over a long time ago. At one point,Snoop looked at the current Bunny Wailer with his wise eyes. I wonder what he really thinks of that glitzy,egocentric, has-been. Bunny was the man one time but too much adoration and weed fried his brain evidently.

No. Snoop the Lion wont launch himself as a reggae singer surrounded by corporate monkeys in the best studios. He needs to hang out in private with real heads; I'm sure there are plenty of real dreads chilling and to be found away from the tour he got. And hire his own recording studio with ...um ...other black people and do their own thing than take marketing advice from young white corporate monkeys.He could afford to do it. Dunno, makes me wonder if Snoop's not turning into a has-been himself after seeing this film.
