Snoop Lion Edits a Wall Street Journal Blog — Seriously

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.‘s spiritual metamorphosis (or clever career rebranding, We Report, You Decide) from canine to cat has been well-documented, as the rap-loving world watched with glee as Snoop Dogg became Snoop Lion in the time it takes to roll a blunt.

But his transformation from musician to Wall Street Journal guest editor is, at least for media gazers like us, all the more amusing.

Write the Speakeasy blog editors:

Today, Snoop is also serving as Speakeasy’s first-ever special guest editor. In that role, he wrote the following essay about his reggae transformation, assigned a story on how sports can help at-risk youth, and will answer reader questions that are sent on Twitter with the hashtag #AskSnoop.

“Everybody searches for this in their own way,” Snoop whatever-animal-you-deem-more-official writes. “Some people never find it. Some people find it through religion or meditation or a relationship or travel. I found it in Jamaica. I finally made it to paradise. Rastafari called me.  And I’m glad I answered. JAH RASTAFARI!”

Jah Rasafari, indeed.
