The sublime effect of this pairing is more transcendent without context, but if you REALLY want to know where this picture came from, it was from some event sponsoring a Star Wars-themed Adidas shoe.

All rock fans have now are the Black Keys. And the countless other rock bands that are overlooked by the Top 40 but still produce great music, of course.

If P. Diddy can change his name and Willie Nelson can release a reggae album, why can't Snoop Dogg do both? The 40-year-old rapper formally announced today that he would be changing his name to Snoop Lion and abandoning rap to focus on reggae.

At a recent press conference, the newly-christened Snoop Lion described his life-changing visit to a Rastafarian temple while in Jamaica recording for his new album:

"I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' And he looked me in my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light; you are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there."



Snoop Dogg Lion is currently working on a reggae album titled "Reincarnated," which will be released alongside a documentary of the same name that will cover Snoop's recent career shift.

Vinyl junkies and nerdy hip-hop heads are no doubt salivating at this awesome R2D2-styled turntable. It looks like a heavily modded Technics 1200, so it's not too out of the question to find one on Craigslist to build a C3PO counterpart.
