The Long Beach rapper Snoop Dogg has several iconic traits -- a laid-back and menacing flow, evocatively violent lyrics and a deep affection for cannabis sativa among them. He'll get to keep at least one of those interests in his new incarnation as Snoop Lion, an alias gleaned from a new interest in Rastafarianism and a hard pivot to traditional reggae music. The identity change, which he first announced last week, is suprising but not unprecedented in contemporary hip-hop (Nas recorded a collaborative album of reggae-infused tunes with Damian Marley)

Re "Rapper Gets Probation on Gun Charge," Aug. 22: Why wouldn't a felon singer on gangster rappers' CDs carry an "unmarked" firearm? If caught, all that he would receive is probation and have to pay a few bucks. Given that the audience of this genre is largely young and impressionable, such a light sentence bodes ill for society. This sentence probably isn't much of a deterrent to Nate Dogg, either. Richard Washington Los Angeles

Marijuana allegedly put the drug-sniffing dogs on Snoop Dogg's tail at the Oslo, Norway, airport Thursday, but what was in his wallet ultimately cost him more than that wayward weed. Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, was allegedly carrying about eight grams of pot as he entered the country, according to Norwegian media reports, via the Associated Press. The bigger problem, or at least the more expensive one, came from the amount of allegedly undeclared cash Snoop was hauling with him as he embarked on a seven-stop jaunt through Europe before hitting Canada and the U.S. for shows.  The rapartisten (that's Norwegian for "rap artist" -- are you impressed?

Remember Beau Biden ? The Delaware attorney general suffered a stroke last year at age 41. His stroke was mild, but as Dr. David S. Liebeskind of the UCLA stroke center, pointed out at the time: "Overall, the perception is that only older people have strokes, but we see a lot of people who have strokes at that age, even younger sometimes.

Rapper Nate Dogg avoided a jail sentence Tuesday by pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge that he possessed an unmarked firearm. The 32-year-old singer, whose real name is Nathaniel Dawayne Hale, was placed on probation for three years and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, said his lawyer, Mark Geragos. In exchange for the plea, Superior Court Judge Michael Cowell in Norwalk dismissed a felony charge alleging that Hale was a felon in possession of a firearm.
