Snoop Lion’s New Film Reincarnated in Theatres March 15th [News]

California/TorontoSnoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, will be premiering his new documentary REINCARNATED in Canada on March 15th in Toronto at The Bloor Cinema. The film will be showing in other Canadian cities as well, with Vancouver beginning on March 17th and Montreal beginning on March 29th.

Presented by VICE and Snoopadelic Films, Snoop Lion’s REINCARNATED traces the life and career of the hip-hop legend, as he embarks on a “journey of reincarnation of self” that is equal parts career reinvention and spiritual reawakening. The close-up documentary, directed by Andy Capper, seamlessly showcases his journey and controversial transformation from hip-hop star to reggae singer while he was recording his forthcoming album REINCARNATED (April 23rd), executive produced by Major Lazer. An official selection of the critically acclaimed Toronto International Film Festival, the highly anticipated film chronicles Snoop Dogg’s spiritual journey to Snoop Lion that grew from his recent trip to Jamaica – where the Jamaican people and culture positively affected him.

REINCARNATED delves into the legacy of Rastafari music culture as Snoop visits Trench Town, the birthplace of reggae and one-time stomping grounds of luminaries Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and the still living, Bunny Wailer. The film gives viewers unprecedented access as Snoop reflects on his turbulent and rapid rise from Long Beach to International icon to his re-christening as Snoop Lion. REINCARNATED is produced by Suroosh Alvi of VICE Media and Ted Chung of Stampede Management.

Natasha was born and raised in Toronto. She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
