The lion was an obvious comparison to Snoop, who has adopted the King of the Jungle as the latter half of his stage name in recent years. The lion that Snoop has associated himself with is more specifically the Lion of Judah, a religious symbol popular in Rastafarian culture. And while he rocks the dreadlocks that represent the lion’s mane, Snoop Lion still has a fair bit of Dogg in him. Despite the grim lifestyle he portrays, there’s an innocence to him and his world. His raps are X-rated, yet the kids love him. This can be likened to lions enjoying positive depiction in popular culture as creatures that are strong, but gentle at the same time- despite incidents of attacks on humans. Snoop set the pattern for 20 years of gangsters, guns and misogyny, connoting strength, violence and power. He epitomizes west coast hip hop, as the lion epitomizes the west African animal kingdom. Whether Snoop is barking or roaring, his lazy drawl is iconic and almighty.
