Snoop Dogg Changes His Name To...

by at . Comments

He introduced himself to the world as Snoop Dogg, sipping on Gin & Juice with Dr. Dre.

Then he became Snoop Lion, an alter ego based in the world of reggae, for the 2013 LP "Reincarnated."

But fans must now say goodbye to both these versions of this beloved rapper, as he's left the Rastafarian universe behind to become… Snoopzilla!

The 41-year-old artist announced this name change this week in promotion for his upcoming album, “7 Days of Funk.”

He says it's homage to funk legend Bootsy Collins, who sometimes went by the nickname of Bootzilla. Whatever, man.

It's all good and hilarious to us, Snoopzilla. Which name do you like best for the star, readers?
