Snoop Lion’s new reggae album Reincarnated has been posted online to live stream until the release of the album next week. I have said before I’m not sure how I feel about this reincarnation but I suspect this is one of those albums that will need multiple listens and a fresh, unbiased view. For example, with Lighters Up, while I am feeling the production, I would have loved it more as simply a Mavado and Popcaan track. On the other hand, I’m definitely feeling So Long.
