Having been to Jamaica on a few occasions recently and even doing a reggae album, rapper Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop) is now the executive producer of a web series that was inspired by his visits.
The series, Noisey Jamaica: Dancehall, will air for the first time today on YouTube on Noisey's YouTube channel.
Jamaican-born producer of the show, Codine Williams, said the show was her idea but was fuelled by their trip to Jamaica with Snoop to film his Reincarnated documentary, as well as a recent video with Mavado and Popcaan.

"I have always wanted to perform for kids, my grandmother and people around the world who really love me and can't accept the music that I make. This reggae music is a music of love, happiness and struggle, and now I get a chance to perform for kids and grandparents," Snoop Lion said.
