    How do you evolve a Snoop Dogg into a Snoop Lion? While this question at first seemed comical, and downright scientifically impossible, when the Rastafarian cauldron was filled with a brew of the strangest ingredient combination imaginable, by the grace of some herb-fueled god, it actually worked.

    So here's how it they did it: Diplo and Major Lazer co-produced the track, which samples Beirut's "Nantes", features guest vocals of Drake, Cori B. and Shante Broadus (Snoop's daughter and wife respectively), and finally, percussion from Stewart Copeland of The Police (no shit).

    I don't know how else to say it, but we really, really like this...



    See Beirut perform the sampled "Nantes" and more live at Music Hall of Williamsburg:
