Storyline

Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg teamed up with VICE on a spiritual journey to Jamaica to reflect on his past career, including his failures, loves, regrets and losses. With this journey, Snoop intends to reincarnate himself as a Pop Reggae artist by immersing himself in Rastafari, exploring musical and religious histories deeply rooted in Jamaica. His pilgrimage begins with a jaunt to a mountain-side ganja farm run by Rastas, revealing the underbelly of the Jamaican drug market. Snoop then heads down to the troubled areas of Trenchtown and Tivoli Gardens; revealing a neglected ghetto population and rampant police brutality following the exile of drug lord Chris "Coke" Dudus. Snoop also stops by the famous Alpha Boys School for an impromptu jam session. A school which has seen countless Reggae musicians pass through its youth orchestra. Snoop allows unprecedented access to his inner-workings as he makes his new album with Diplo and Angela Hunte, author of the smash hit song Empire State Of ... Written by VICE Staff

nothing more then a extended music video
8 May 2014 | by ludwig_vonSee all my reviews

The documentary evokes more questions then it answers. Snoop Dogg tells he wants to discover the rastafari life. What was he expecting? What is driving him? What does rastafari mean to him? What has this soul journey brought him? Well, some of the most essential questions remain unsolved. All you see is a man playing the roll of the rapper Snoop Dogg.

The documentary has not more depth then an average music video. Snoop is playing Snoop and that's it. Then there is the music in the "documentary". I got the feeling that Snoop is more of a personality and a singer. The whole musical production seems to be done by Diplo and his crew. Furthermore there seem to be little chemistry between the rapper and his selected producers. The cooperation feels more like pragmatic business relation.

The most fascinating about the documentary is the role of his wife and kids. The multimillionaire gangster rapper still being with his first wife. She is credited as producer and her nickname is "Boss Lady".. Unfortunately her role is limited to a few shots and I can't recall her getting to say some lines. But it gives you glimp of the true person behind Snoop Dogg.

Maybe this "docu" is interesting for the fans. For other people this is very mediocre prolonged video clip not worthy to be entitled as documentary.
