Bunny Wailer Calls Snoop Lion a Rasta Poser
Well, Snoop Lion, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg, has riled up Bunny Wailer, one of the original members of Bob Marley and the Wailers. He says Snoop is just posing as Rasta to make money.
In a report by TMZ, Wailer claims that Snoop is “fraudulent with the use of the Rastafari community’s personalities, and symbolism”, and that he has failed to meet “contractual, moral, and verbal commitments”. He seems to be most upset about the movie “Reincarnated” that documents Snoop’s introduction to the Rasta culture while he was in Jamaica recording his first reggae album.
Bunny Wailer isn’t the only one pissed off, according to the post at TMZ, the Rastafari Millennium Council sent a seven page letter of demand to Snoop on the topic. They claim that the letter makes it clear, that smoking weed, and loving Bob Marley isn’t what defines the Rasta Culture.
