When Snoop visited Jamaica to record his album Reincarnated with Diplo, he mentioned that he wanted to make music that he could perform in front of The President. Well last week, it all came true, as he was a guest performer at the Kennedy Center Honors. See behind-the-scenes footage of Snoop’s visit to the White House with his wife and daughter. The album Reincarnated was also recently nominated for a Grammy.
The story of Snoop’s musical and spiritual journey to Jamaica, reaching its culmination during the recording of his most recent album and captured in VICE and Snoopadelic Films documentary Reincarnated. This book is an extension of this powerful moment in the life of a pop culture icon captured by LA photographer Willie T. Includes extended interviews with Bunny Wailer, Louis Farrakhan, Chris Blackwell, Daz Dillinger, Angela Hunte, and conversations between Snoop and VICE—never-before-seen photographs and untold stories from his personal archives from his early days singing in church to his discovery at sixteen by Dr. Dre and his phenomenal life onstage and on tour to his gang involvement, and Snoop’s handwritten notes and nicknames for the characters along the way. It also includes the limited edition vinyl only given to a select few musical insiders before the album’s release.
