Snoop Lion (or the artist formally known as Snoop Dogg) is facing some flack after Bunny Wailer, an original member of Bob Marley and the Wailers) was upset about the film “Reincarnated”.

The film documents Snoop’s immersion into the Rastafarian culture as he recorded his first reggae album in Jamaica last year.
Speaking to TMZ, Wailer said that Snoop committed “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism,” and that the rapper has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.”
Bunny is not alone on his distaste of Snoop, leaders of the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) fired off a 7-page demand letter to Snoop.
In the documents they claim to have made it clear to Snoop that “smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture!”
The council wants Snoop to stop using the name “Lion” and to pay up the “financial and moral support”. They also want Snoop to issue a public apology.

    I love it. Bunny tends to keep things real, and we should heed his word. I don’t know anything about this ‘cept what I read right hear, I didn’t know Snoop has gone on a Rasta trip, but believe that may have gone there superficially, and therefore believe he deserves a good bitch slap from the Rasta community. Extremely wealthy American, juss lookin’ to keep gettin’high and likes reggae. K. Kinda like a tourist.
    Perhaps he is looking for some spiritual fulfillment aswell.
