Snoop Lion hasn't decided whether to make another reggae album yet and is considering returning to his rap roots or experimenting with a radically new genre
Snoop Lion might return to rap music.
The controversial artist - formerly known as Snoop Dogg - reinvented himself with his latest album 'Reincarnated' after embracing Rastafarian culture and music on a trip to Jamaica, but has hinted he could return to his former vocation.
The laid-back icon told NME magazine: "I don't know if I want to repeat the same process as far as going to Jamaica and making a reggae album.
"I may wanna go to another country and make a reggae album. I may wanna make a rap album. I don't know."
The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' hitmaker could also be contemplating yet another radical overhaul and is open to the idea of travelling to a foreign country to immerse himself in a new sound and image.
He added: "I definitely feel like I'm gonna make more music but I don't know if I'm gonna go to Jamaica, I may wanna go somewhere else. I may wanna venture into another part of the world.
"Some things you let them be what they are. That was a priceless moment. I may wanna do something different next time."
Snoop's upcoming album will feature guest vocals from Drake, Rita Ora and Chris Brown and be accompanied by a fly-on-the-wall documentary chronicling his transformation in Trench Town, the Jamaican area recognised as the birthplace of reggae music.
