Frank Ocean Co-Signs The ‘Legendary’ Snoop Lion Moniker

By Jocelyn Vena

If you’re wondering how to feel about Snoop Dogg’s new moniker, Snoop Lion, you should look no further than Frank Ocean for some direction. The Odd Future crooner is really into the rapper’s reincarnation, giving it a major thumbs up.

“I’m stoked to hear whatever you’re making,” Ocean told MTV News Tuesday night at the Time 100 Gala, where he was being honored. “And I think the name change is absolutely legendary.” Well, then Frank might want to get stoked about what’s about to go down today, Wednesday (April 24).

Snoop Lion will sit down at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT with MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway on this week’s “RapFix Live,” airing on MTV Jams and RapFix.MTV.com. It marks his first-ever appearance on the show. And, he is set to open up about his voyage from Dogg to Lion during the conversation.

He will also chat about his latest album release, Reincarnated, which features appearances from the likes of Miley Cyrus to Drake.
