Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion to Snoopzilla 

Snoop Dogg's first major name change occurred back in 1998 when he left Death Row and joined No Limit Records and eliminated the "Doggy" from his moniker. In 2012, Snoop was in Jamaica working on a new reggae album and documentary when he says a Rastafarian priest christened him as Snoop Lion. He used the alias for his 2013 release, Reincarnated. Then, last December, The DPG leader switched it up again to Snoopzilla when he and Dam Funk released their collaborative project 7 Days Of Funk.
