Fans witnessed legendary MC Snoop Dogg undergo a transformation over the past few months, as he embraced and embodied the rasta lifestyle under a new moniker, Snoop Lion. His journey, both personally and musically, is fully encompassed in the gangster rapper’s two-part project Reincarnated, of which the musical portion is due in stores on April 23.

Having already revealed numerous leaks thus far, VICE subsidiary Noisey provides an advance stream of the entire project to whet appetites until it’s available for purchase.

Spearheaded by track’s like “No Guns Allowed,” featuring Drake and his daughter Cori B. and “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” featuring Miley Cirus, Snoop displays his ability to be a chameleon once again with his music. The production core of Diplo & Major Lazer also deserve props for their part in sonically developing the Long Beach native’s newfound reggae/dancehall influenced sound.

The accompanying film for the album, also titled Reincarnated, is available on iTunes, Amazon and other retailers today. Head here for to cop the pre-order. Get an advanced listen of the LP below, and let us know if you’re feeling Snoops new music in the comments.
