Snoop Lion's "La La La"

I got a kick out of Snoop, er, Lion's new video "La La La" from his new album Reincarnated. To me, the beginning with the kids shows me that he has a sense of humor about how ridiculous it all is. Also, the song is produced by the most excellent Major Lazer.

    It’s worth it to see the outraged comments on YouTube.

    Of course Major Lazer didn’t have a whole lot of work to do, as that fine riddim was laid down decades ago in Ken Boothe’s “Artibella”

    He changes names like some people change their facebook avatars.

    Hrm……

    I’m glad. I want snoop to do more Jamaican music. Reggae, Dub, even toss into the Kingston dancehall scene. His shizzle was getting crusty.

     Snoop is way to late to the party. Kids from the burbs in California have been producing better reggae than this for years.

    Too much commercialization of Jah.

    good for him, exploring and creating. sorely miss the time bending, just behind and ahead of the beat deal, he does so well though

    A genuine question here– is there any reason why he suddenly shifts into acting like he didn’t grow up speaking English? Seems weird and insulting to hear him suddenly start talking like he’s from some island.

      Consider for a moment, were you insulted when Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, or UB40 did it? or when the Kinks did Calypso?  Its a musical genre and performers communicate with it. Modest Menzinsky didn’t pretend to grow up in Italy for singing as Pagliacci.

    wow.  that was really boring!

  12. Itsumishi says:

    As a fan of both Snoop Dogg and Major Lazer, I can safely say the OKness of this video doesn’t make up for the absolute blandness of that crappy crappy song.

  13. Marjo Aho says:

    I’m actually impressed that Snoop “reincarnated” by co-operatig with someone as awesome as Jovi Rockwell, rather than pretending to be some sort of oldskool top-dogg. The infusion of humor is also super positive.
