Riff: Snoop Lion – “So Long”

Apr 22, 2013

Round and round our road keeps turning/No one can stop the time/It’s just another bridge we’re crossing/Keep this message in your souls and minds

from So Long lyrics by Snoop Lion

Snoop’s getting sentimental, and if it were anyone else he’d have to renew his man card stat. But after two decades of debauchery and brushes with the law it all makes sense. Snoop’s entering his twilight and realizes that the fast lifestyle that got him here can only last for so long; [LISTEN].
