First came Snoop Doggy Dogg, then Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion, and now Snoopzilla.
Rapper and singer-songwriter (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr.) has changed his name once again!

Less than a year after renaming himself Snoop Lion, the rapper says he changed his moniker to reflect his
new musical direction with funk project 7 Days Of Funk. Snoop has formed a collective with Dâm-Funk and the pair are releasing their debut album on  December 10.

The newly-christened Snoopzilla said of the new band:
"We're the babies of the Mothership. I've had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dâm-Funk is cold. He's keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him."

Snoop has been known to invest himself fully in his transformations, converting to Rastafarianism for his reggae album, 'Reincarnated', under the name Snoop Lion.
The star's new identity pays tribute to legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins, who was known as Bootzilla, and Snoop is said to be a taking well to the new genre.
