Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn't as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned.

Snoop is a fascinating figure who deserves better than this puff piece.

Anything beyond 'Jah' and 'peace and love' is lost in a fog of weed but classic moments such as a perma-stoned Snoop trying to scrump a grapefruit off a tree are unintentionally hilarious.

In its simplest moments ... "Reincarnated" presents an honesty that is its own reward. It shows us an old Dogg with no tricks.

A personal journey for Snoop Dogg as he becomes Snoop Lion. Perhaps I am being overly critical but while it may have been moving for Mr. Lion, the audience… More
