Snoop Lion has put out a music video for his track Ashtrays And Heartbreak, which features Miley Cyrus, and is lifted from Snoop’s reggae album Reincarnated. The clip contains scenes of struggle, survival and, of course, Snoop blowing smoke about the place.
Diplo, who co-produced the track and album, also makes a cameo.
Snoop recently described Cyrus as “one of the greatest musicians of all time”. The comment came during last month’s MTV Movie Awards, where Snoop gushed over Miley while talking about their collaboration”
“She was one of the greatest musicians and personalities of all time… She loves what I do and I really love what she do, and for us to come together is very bold and courageous … We’re both going through transformation, we both love making music and doing what we do and speaking from our hearts, and it’s just a great collaboration.”
However, not everyone is loving Snoop’s new direction. Despite appearing in the album related documentary for Reincarnated, Bunny Wailer, of Bob Marley And The Wailers, claimed that Snoop is exploiting Rastafarian culture.
Here’s what Snoop had to say about that:
“In the Nineties, he could have never tried that because I’d have slapped the dog shit out of his old ass. How dare you? After all I’ve done for you? How dare you? You wasn’t the shit in the Wailers. You was just one of them: Bob, Peter Tosh, then you. They dead mean more than you do alive.”
