Snoop Dogg’s reggae-inspired alter ego Snoop Lion stepped out of his smooth, laid back signature rap style and headed towards a more sprightly direction with “Get Away” from his Reincarnated
album. “Get Away” begins as any other reggae tune would – slow, but steady with a catchy and happy-go-lucky feel – but the song rapidly picks up energy and speed when Major Lazer
‘s unmistakable production style is introduced. To complement the unique fusion track, Snoop Lion and Major Lazer have created a music video ode to some of the most popular Nintendo games of the late 90’s generation. The cleverly designed 8-bit animations feature Snoop Lion and Major Lazer’s own animated mascot as they playfully duel it out in several Reincarnated
-inspired reworked renditions of recognizable video games.
