www.uptownmag.com Introducing Snoop Lion diversions 1 18 21 24 28 A documentary that follows Snoop Dogg's recent soul-searching trip to Jamaica makes its debut at TIFF www.alloneword.ca Anthony Augustine bit.ly/reincarnated — Right from his early verses on Dr Dre's legendary album, The Chronic,West CoastMCSnoop Dogg has been a force to be reckoned with in the hip hop world. His laid-back style, stoner slow vibe and instantly recognizable voice has helped him become one of the biggest players in the game. Disenchanted with hip hop, Snoop spent a month in Jamaica finding himself and has come back with a new name (the much-discussed Snoop Lion), a deeper appreciation of Rastafarian culture,an albumfull of reggae- flavoured tracks he cut in the studio with Diplo (Major Lazer), along with a who's who of the island's tight-knit music community, and the belief that he's channelling Bob Marley. Produced in association with Vice Films, Reincarnated, a documentary charting his experi- ence, will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.A book, the aforementioned albumand probably a slew of remixes will follow. Snoop Dogg's Reincarnated bit.ly/degrassi239 — Everybody loves Degrassi. From Hollywood types such as Kevin Smith to hip Americans teens who have made it a cult hit south of the border to Canadians who knewwho Drake was before he turned into a hip hop millionaire, few shows have endured like this Canuck classic. One of the secrets to Degrassi's success has been that it has never shied away from the issues and obstacles young people face. Over 12 seasons, the most recent incarnation of the show has tackled nearly 250 issues that Vulture painstakingly lists. From being humiliated on Twitter to having abusive parents, if it happens to those between the ages of 12 and 18, chances are Degrassi has done a showabout it. The 239 Issues Tackled by Degrassi Over 12 Seasons bit.ly/funk_boat—Voted the No. 1 and No. 2 DJs in the city this year by Uptown readers,Co-op and Hunnicutt are getting ready to throw their 10th annual Funk Boat party.
