Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, is going to be rapping about peace on his new album.
The rapper used to rap about guns and gang warfare but his recent spiritual awakening means he is going to promote peace instead.
Snoop told MTV News: “Now you see me writing about 'No Guns Allowed' because... it's about being a man and being strong and being powerful enough to try and educate and deter people from doing negative things in life.
“The world needs positivity and music that feels good. Because music is a relief. That's what it does: It relives your pain, it relives anything that you're going through.
“When you go to a club or go in your car and put on your music it's for relief.”
Snoop went on to talk about his new reggae outlook, which led to him rebranding himself as Snoop Lion instead of Snoop Dogg.
He added: “'My early memories of reggae music was always a room full a smoke and the way you dance to it, the way it was seductive and sexy.
“Underneath it all there was a message to it and you could hear the strength and the struggle. Its was a groove that was its own groove.”
