Snoop Lion faced some criticism earlier this week from the legendary Bunny Wailer of Bob Marley and the Wailers (and the Rastafari Millennium Council) for false representation of the Rastafari culture. He also aired out his grievances for Snoop’s Reincarnated documentary, asking him to give a public apology and a name change.
Snoop recently sat down with LargeUp to address his relationship with Bunny. He says “if you ain’t real, then he ain’t gonna be around you.” This means Snoop received the respect of the reggae icon.
Rohan Marley, who is the son of Bob Marley, chimed in to defend Snoop. He tells TMZ that they shouldn’t condemn him for his love of Rastafari. He adds that the Marley Family and Snoop have been cool for quite some time.
“Our father’s name should not even be mentioned in this issue because like a true Rasta, he would have embraced Snoop’s reincarnation and welcomed the positivity.”
He continued, “We have been cool with Snoop before his transformation and he will continue to have our blessings and support.”
