The artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg drops an anti-violence track which features his own daughter Cori B.

Snoop Lion, 's reggae alter ego, drops the new single "No Guns Allowed" from his forthcoming "" album, set to make its debut on April 23. The song was first heard last March 11 when the 41-year-old artist performed it complete with backing singers on 's late-night talk show.

The -produced anti-violence anthem features Canadian rapper who takes over the rapping task on this track from Snoop, who does more singing on this one. His own daughter Cori B. also helps out in the single by singing the backing vocals in the recording. 's drummer Stewart Copeland plays the percussions on the laid-back, electro-reggae tune co-produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, with additional production by Dre Skull.

"No guns allowed in here tonight, we're gonna have a free-for-all, no fight," Snoop leads the singing on the hook, hoping to "spread the message of non-violence and the importance of unity and peace," according to a press statement. Snoop clearly carried over the peace-loving stance he first acquired on a trip in Jamaica, the one that prompted his recent "reincarnation" from gangster rapper to reggae artist.

The song's message of peace is quite timely considering the series of gun-related violence that have been taking place in recent months, once of which even personally affected collaborator Drake. In his own native Toronto, a shooting incident marred a neighborhood party killing two innocent partygoers and injuring several others, including a helpless toddler.
