Newly renamed Snoop Lion is a fan of the royals

Snoop Dogg has revealed that he’s a big fan of the royal princes.

The controversial rapper, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, says he’s proud that Prince William, 30, and Prince Harry, 28, grew up listening to his music.

I wanna shoot a shout-out to my homeboys in London: the princes, Harry and William,’ says Snoop, 41.

You know I raised them on this music of mine. They were groomed on me. How you think the Queen like that?’

Snoop – who recently started performing reggae music under the name Snoop Lion – thinks the princes would have been able to relate to his music.

I’m a part of their revolt,’ the dad-of-three tells The Guardian Weekend.

They were at an age when my music spoke to them.’
