I kinda saw this coming.
Bunny Wailer an original member of Bob Marley and the Wailers tells TMZ he’s not happy about Snoop Lion’s documentary film “Reincarnated”, which documented Snoop’s immersion in the Rastafarian culture as he recorded his first reggae album in Jamaica last year.
Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism”, and has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.”
The Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council also agrees and sent Snoop a seven page letter demanding that the rapper stop using the “Snoop Lion” name, make an apology, and of course, fork over some cash that he allegedly promised. TMZ reports that a portion of the letter reads, “smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture!”
If Snoop, If the artist born Calvin Broadus doesn’t adhere to these requests, he will be sued.
Snoop Lion has yet to comment.
