However when we look at Snoop's latest video in support of the album we are still saying Snoop is still missing the reggae mark. The single called "Here comes the King" has a lot of scenes that raises doubt on the issue.
Snoop still singing and chanting in a pseudo Jamaican accent sounding like a bad Hollywood actor trying to catch the Jamaican accent.

Hot 97's Miss Info called this video part comical and part bizarre and we agree. We hope Snoop is not just playing a character. Will he still be Snoop Dogg sometimes and Snoop Lion sometimes..hmmmm.
We hope that the album features some local producers like Don Corleone, Shane Brown or Gussie Clarke who we are sure can give Snoop some good direction.
Diplo and Major Lazer, the producers will add their own twist to the reggae/dancehall flavour, we spoke on Diplo's influence earlier Click on the link below:

We suggest Snoop just drops the accent and buss out a free style on a bad dancehall beat. Snoop has maaad flow and if you have any doubts on the Snooooop Doggg just refresh your mind to this:
