Snoop Lion

Hip-Hop Rumors: Rastafarians PISSED At Snoop Dogg! Threaten Snoop Lion!

I KNEW this was going to happen! Basically, and honestly, nobody really was rocking with Snoop Lion. Keep it real. People rolled with it, but a LOT of people quietly looked at it as a way for Snoop to get some renewed press. Last year, he dumped the name Snoop Dog as somebody in Jamaica anointed him as SNOOP LION. Then he did a DVD, an album and conversion to the Rastafari religion. But did he? Here is what TMZ is reporting. Folks are threatening Snoop!


Snoop Lion, nee Snoop Dogg, has done the seemingly impossible — pissed off a bunch of ganja smoking Rastafarians — who claim he lied about becoming a Rasta just to make a movie and sell records … and now they’re threatening to sue.
Bunny Wailer — an original member of Bob Marley and the Wailers — tells TMZ he’s heated about the docu-film “Reincarnated” … which documented Snoop’s immersion in the Rasta 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.”

And it’s not just Bunny who feels burned — leaders of something called the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) — fired of a 7-page demand letter to Snoop.

In the docs 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!”

Bottom line … they want Snoop to stop using the name “Lion” … pay up the “financial and moral support” they claim he committed, and issue a public apology.

If Snoop refuses — FIRE WILL BUN FI HIM!! Or in layman’s terms … they’re gonna sue his ass. We called Snoop for comment, and so far no word back.

And now, something to help everyone chill …

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.

    Someone need to give that niggah a protein shake…

    • Casor_Greener

      So let me guess…..Now people are going to say, “The Rastas extorted Snoop” and we are going to get a bunch of YouTube videos of some broke “Gangsta Rastas” threatening to end his career and telling him to “Send them checks!”

      The corniness has to end somewhere…

      • With the complimentary rap video.

      • DollasTX

        nah i was just saying by the looks of that pic up top the niggah need a cheeseburger – smh at rastas extortion – lmao

    • I was the first one to say this about Snoop…..He is fake and phony, one day you are talking about hoes and drugs and the next minute you are stealing someones religion as if you have the knowledge and or discipline to represent such people. Again smoking weed all day and blasting Reggae music is not how you add your self to a religion. Have some Respect

    • Black Exodus

      So you Telling me, Snoop be Lion?

      • DollasTX

        snoop just doing snoop – tryng to stay relevant before he retire to VEGAS lol

  • Blue Skies

    Snoop is taking this rasta lifestyle thing way too far. He was on TMZ speaking in a jamaican accent. Like really? You’re from Compton!..Or whatever.

    • johnblacksad


    • is he really? lol and he a crip thats rocking some red and yello, thats a foul right there HA

      • Celz

        Niccas been off wearin colors like that fam..

    • coast

      Long beach actually. Nothin but A G thang- “I’m realer, than real deal holyfield”-Snoop Lion is far from real. I swear rap is starting to parrallel wrestling more than ever. e.g. Changing monikers, scripted beefs, fake ass actors, etc

      • Guest

        shut yo mouth. what u know about dogg pound. ugly nigga

      • When snoop changed from snooper duper to snoop doggy dogg and became a gang sign throwing braids having gangster he was fake then. After that he became a suit wearing fake mafia bioss with the dogg father gimmick. Then he went to the whole pimp thing on don Juan’s dick. He been like that for over 20 years.

      • thuglifefukdapolice

        fool snoop is real he changed his life and changed his name it was only right snoop is his real hood name so get your facts str8 snoop is 40 something with lots of kids so shut the f up this is the same snoop who was on trial for murder screamin murda was the case so shut the f up

    • True…

  • only group trying to accept a dude that gets a damn french manicure is the LGBT community… maybe he should change his name to Snoop Fierce…

  • Darren Myt Collins


  • Synista

    Snoop better take his ass back to Compton,either that or hire full time shotta security.
    And “fire will burn him ” don’t mean no lawsuit in layman’s terms …

    • It means them hot shells will.

    • Guest

      aw shit..r u for real? u MUST be watching too many movies bro. tryin too hard to give credence..stay with the curry goat homie. we got that carrot juice here in pasadena too.

      • Synista

        Go suck yuh granny!

  • Numbuh Four

    Snoop’s been slowly falling off for like the last decade…As big a fan as I WAS…he needs to just drop one last rap album as Snoop Dogg and let his damn career end with some dignity. You too Bow Wow….

    • hahahaha bow wow lol dont need no more lil bow wow albums that fo sho

    • Super_Hero

      no more albums. It won’t sell. He will never have the buzz he had coming in the game. He should play the background and sign artist and do a features here and there.

  • AnnaLee

    While some may not agree with Snoop Dogg. The real issue here is that Bunny Wailer is a disgruntled Wailer trying his best to stay relevant. Rasta is about peace and Love not about money. Snoop has brought back a renewed interest into reggae. Maybe Bunny Wailer should take a page out of Snoop’s book and reinvent himself

    • Sean Taylor

      Its not about money but Snoop is making it about money and pimping Rastas. And Bunny doesnt need Snoop to make him relevant hes been relevant when snoop was shitting in pampers.

      • AnnaLee

        Yeah he was relevant while Snoop was shitting in pampers, but relevant because of Bob Marley. Last time I checked Rastafarism was a religion not a mockery of its practices. Bunny Failure must practice what he preach

      • Weedras

        in defense of Bunny he did have a relatively solid solo career so you can’t attribute it all to Bob. furthermore Bob didn’t write all the Wailers music Bunny was there from day one along with Peter Tosh so if there isn’t no Bunny without Bob, there ain’t no Bob without Bunny and Tosh…

      • Guest

        pimping rastas? damn u disrespectful yo. anything u say after that is simply orange.

      • Yes, and not only is Snoop a dam fraud but he has no clue about Rastafarian’s. Bunny Wailer is a legend, perhaps Hip-Hop is so used to opening it’s doors to any idiot who want to call themselves a rapper, but Rasta’s don’t play that and they are not just going to open there doors to any fool with a blunt in there hand.

    • Banksy

      “Snoop has brought back a renewed interest into reggae.”

      Maybe to you but Reggae was doing fine way before Snoop changed his name and Bunny Wailer is a member of possibly the most iconic Reggae band in history, which means as long as people remember Bob Marley, The Wailers will always be relevant.

  • shoulda just made his own fake religion to smoke to on some church of the subgenius shit! In other news Metal Gear Rising a month away dope ads I am hype.

    • johnblacksad

      what’s a metal gear rising? video game? i ain’t touch one since Double Dragon II on my nintendo 8-bit… yeah, that old

      • Choppa


      • Dayum!

        Modern Warfare 3, or Black Ops 2, the ‘chet is dope!

        Ask your butler!

      • johnblacksad

        LMAO… these games scare me, i’m more like a Mariokart type of brotha

      • Celz

        I used to smash on then bytches that had the ball n chains..

  • Let just Snoop have some fun. I think there is no
    better ambassador for peace and unity than
    Snoop D O double G. He is just him and does
    what he wanna do.
    Bunny Wailer is just one of those old black Nazi
    Rasta mofos. I think Snoop is badly needed to
    show those guys their way back to the roots.

    • ramon06

      @Asher if anyone needs to be shown their way back their roots its you shucking and jiving, lack of education, pants on the ground, can’t speak proper English black american men who revel in creating babies you don’t support, poping gats, and live in perpetual ignorance.

      • EL_BARK

        I normally dont jump in e beef. But asher although we have a differernce views. Is far from the above description…….

      • ramon06

        @EL_Bark..This response is not meant too characterize Asher himself but his statement regarding Snoop Dog showing Bunny Wailer the “way back to the roots” is a joke…When did crip walking, gat toting, weed smoking, gin & juice drinking, and ebonics speaking become our roots? Am I missing something?

      • Celz

        When did Asher say that was the roots? You just brought a whole unrelated subject into the convo.. You are the only one speaking of gangsta culture.. I think you meant to say Snoop can’t take them back to their roots because he has promoted a gangsta image for so long..

      • Co-Sign El Bark…

        Asher is so far from your description, the ‘chet is actually funny!

    • I just wanted to kick a positive comment.
      Anybody who takes Snoop serious for a
      gangster is just lost. He’s been off the
      streets for a long time.
      I just think a project like Snoop Lion is
      just great. Snoop is reinventing himself.
      So why not? Maybe he himself became
      tired or rapping about selling drugs and
      lowriders. Also why not not having a
      rapper from LBC speaking patois?
      no need to be too closed minded.
      When Snoop started he was using
      a southern accent. Nobody cared if
      it’s real or not. It sounded cool.

      If Snoop feels to be Snoop Lion he
      should do whatever he wants. Half of
      all reggae artists are not from Jamaica
      either. They might be 3rd generation
      Jamaicans from UK.

      Just enjoy.

      Peace out to El bark and Edogz

      Ramon, no bad feelings allright.
      I’m also judging people wrong many times.
      nobody’s perfect.

      • Kelvin Marshall

        They let Shaggy make platinum records without questioning his authenticity so this whole subject is mute……

  • Mitchell Patterson

    smh… Snoop is NOT from Compton. I guess in 10-15 years your kids will think he’s from Jamaica LOL

    • Sir_Salty_Mcginty

      Yep. He is from LBC!!

    Snoop Lion?? gtfoh. More Like Snoop Lyin’. This was obviously a money making move by Snoop. He just wanted to reinvent himself, and in turn, pimped an entire Culture to do it. That was a fashizzle mistake-izzle, my nizzal.

    • danny4572

      if he wanted to make a money move he would just have made an album full of songs like “sweat”… u cant honestly believe that this was a money making move?

  • Weedras

    i understand the uproar but WTF are they seeking compensation?

  • greeneyedbandit

    I wish Snoop nothin but the best….fan for life~
