Riff: Snoop Lion – “Get Away”

Apr 22, 2013

Got to get away/Got to get away/To a place I love/To a place I love

from Get Away lyrics by Snoop Lion

After the dog biscuits and reality shows and various cameos, you just sort of stopped questioning Snoop and let him do his own thing. But over this generically crafted reggae fusion joint he sounds out of place and a bit uncertain – an accessory on his own track, which is not where a legend should be.
