In GQ’s January issue, Drew Magary tags along with Snoop Lion in West Hollywood to learn more about his recent name change and “spiritual rebirth,” as Snoop himself calls it.

The newly reborn Rasta shaman shares why he’s taken a step back from the raps about guns, girls, and gangs that made him a pivotal figure in hip-hop and is now about expressing his passions for peace, love, and of course, weed… Read the full interview HERE!

Below are several highlights from the interview:

Snoop Lion on whether or not he’ll introduce his kids to weed:

“It’s not that I would ever push weed on our kids,” says Snoop, who has three children, ranging in age from 12 to 18, “but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their shit or overdose or trying some shit that ain’t clean.”

…on his “spiritual rebirth” and changes in his music:

“As you become a man, you start having kids and living. You put the guns away, and your music becomes Hey, I’m with my kid and I’m living now… as opposed to Fuck that—I’ll shoot you on sight. …If I focus on death, it’s going to come closer than what it’s supposed to be. You’ll become it. I’ll say it to my friends: Write songs about being shot at and then the shit happens. And I don’t want to dwell on it long, but I wrote a song called ‘Murder Was the Case,’ and I never had a murder case in my life. But when that song came out, I had a real murder case.”

…on his next upcoming albums:

“I really didn’t want to have too many featured people on my next couple of projects. Because if I’m doing an interview with you and you say, ‘Hey, Snoop, you’re working on your next album. Well, who’s on it?’ That’s always the first question. Who the fuck you think is on it? Me, motherfucker!”
