Fans will be able to see Snoop Dogg‘s documentary ‘Reincarnated’ in theaters next February. The film chronicles the veteran rhyme-slinger’s spiritual journey to Jamaica and his transformation into the Rastafarian named Snoop Lion.

The documentary has garnered raves reviews at several film festivals, most recently at the Toronto International Film Festival. In addition, Snoop Lion will also drop the accompanying soundtrack in February so fans can understand his journey into the world of reggae music. “If I just drop this music, it leaves room for questioning,” he tells Billboard. “You wouldn’t understand the whole journey or the transformation. When I allow you to see the movie, to go on the journey with me, to see exactly why I’m the lion, why the music changed — [you'll] have a full understanding.”

Snoop Lion, however, insists that his transition into reggae music doesn’t mean that he’s done with rap altogether. For him, it’s just another outlet to express his creative freedom. “I came out in hip-hop, gangsta rapper, West Coast, that is who I am, that is what I will always been [sic] in hip-hop,” he says. “That’s why the transformation into reggae fits the mode better, because to me reggae is about love and peace and unity and struggle.”

When asked if he’s worried that some people might not accept the Doggfather crooning reggae anthems, he shrugs it off. “People respect me, so musically, I can do whatever I like,” he says. “When I took on a song that I had called ‘Sexual Eruption,’” it was a song where there was singing, 90% of the song, and it was one of my biggest records. One thing about me and the people, they appreciate my voice, no matter what it’s doing. If it’s singing, rapping, talking, they appreciate the voice and the time that I put into giving them something creative from me.”
