As legendary hip hop artist Snoop Dogg traveled to Jamaica, submerging himself in the Rastafarian culture to return as reggae musician Snoop Lion, the Long Beach native brought along a camera crew to document his journey both within and without. Matching the album title of his first foray into Jamaica’s tranquil music genre, Reincarnated was originally envisioned as a short film, however the extensive self-realizing footage of Snoop visiting Rasta temples, remote marijuana plantations, Kingston’s Alpha Boys School band, reggae legend Bunny Wailer and much more quickly transformed into a motion picture that runs over 90 minutes.
