Snoop Lion Performs “No Guns Allowed” With A Ridiculous Microphone On ‘Conan’: Watch

Snoop Sings

Let’s say you just woke up from a 15-year coma. Or a 10-year coma. Hell, even a five-year coma. And you saw Snoop Dogg performing a song about gun control with a choir led by his daughter on a basic cable show hosted by Conan O’Brien. That would be jarring! But even if you’ve been following Snoop’s transformation into the reggae entity Snoop Lion this whole time, it’s still pretty jarring! Like, this is real. The man formerly known as Snoop Dogg sang (yes, sang) ”No Guns Allowed” on Conan Monday night (March 12). And it didn’t go so well.

Look, we respect Snoop for taking a risk with this new direction. But maybe there’s a reason the Doggfather was doing fine in the industry for a couple decades without releasing an album featuring fake patois singing? The Reincarnated version of this track features Drake, which surely helps out a little, and we like the song’s message. We dig the set design, too! But even that absurdly huge bling microphone (which reads “Snoop Dogg” — Lion or Dogg, which is it, man?!) couldn’t distract from this reggae-bomination.

    Well if you watched the entire show you would of known from the interview that the microphone was a few years old and Snoop only brought it out because Conan was interested in it. He probably used it during the performance because he had it on him and just a why not thing.

    I miss the Snoop who would, as a matter of fact, (rat-tat-tat-tat), would never hesitate to put a nigga on his back.

  3. I think you’re missin the point brother. The guy is a rap lyrical genius and he’s conquered the rap game. He is stepping out of his element and reinventing himself. I give him props, not because he’s entering a genre that has a low fan base, but because i believe he’s genuine in what he sings about. Especially in this era where we are becoming more and more skeptical of our government; we need a snoop lion to preach peace and make a damn good track out of it.

    I’m a fan of Snoop’s transformation. Can’t wait to see what he does. Currently digging “Lighters Up.” http://smarturl.it/LighersUp.
