About this product
- DescriptionThe story of Sop's musical and spiritual journey to Jamaica, reaching its culmination during the recording of his most recent album and captured in VICE and Sopadelic Films documentary Reincarnated. Immediately following the death of longtime friend and collaborator Nate Dogg, Sop headed to Jamaica to regroup and record his twelfth album. There, he experienced a radical transformation from hip-hop god and legendary leader of the West Coast gang rivalry to Rastafarian spokesperson Sop Lion, embracing n-violence and reggae. This book is an extension of this powerful moment in the life of a pop culture icon captured on film by VICE Global Editor Andy Capper. Includes extended interviews with Bunny Wailer, Louis Farrakhan, Chris Blackwell, Daz Dillinger, Angela Hunte, and conversations between Sop and VICE-never-before-seen photographs and untold stories from his personal archives from his early days singing in church to his discovery at sixteen by Dr. Dre and his phemenal life onstage and on tour to his gang involvement, behind-the-scenes stills from 'insider' LA photographer Willie T., the best of Sop from the inimitable VICE archives, and Sop's handwritten tes and nicknames for the characters along the way. It also includes the limited edition vinyl only given to a select few musical insiders before the album's release.
