Bob Marley & The Wailers Member Criticizes Snoop Lion Joining The Rastafari Movement

Bunny Wailer of Bob Marley & the Wailers fame lambasts Snoop Lion's recent religious conversion.

Last year, Snoop Dogg shocked listeners when he announced his joining the Rastafari movement and changed his name to Snoop Lion. Now, in a recent report from TMZ, it appears that members of the community are outraged by his highly-publicized religious conversion.

Bunny Wailer, Rasta practitioner and original member of Bob Marley & the Wailers, recently criticized the rapper. After viewing the documentary Reincarnated, which documents Snoop's conversion, Wailer said that Snoop was abusing the tenants of his religion for commercial gain.

"[His conversion is] outright fraudulent use of [the] Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism. [Snoop has failed to meet the] contractual, moral and verbal commitments [of the Rastafarian religion]," Wailer said.

Bunny Wailer isn't the only member of the Rastafari community outraged by Snoop's new-found adherence to the religion. The Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council recently released a seven-page statement about his conversion, saying that, "smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture!" 

The Council is threatening to sue Snoop Dogg is he does not cease to use the name "Snoop Lion," make a public apology and pay fees to the group for financial and moral support.

  • IIG

    People get it right: Bunny Wailer isn't asking for a dime. He's just saying Snoop is a fraud, something that we all know. That other group threatening to sue are some fuck niggas after a check. Bunny Wailer is a legend, and is just speaking his mind about the blatant disrespect of his culture and his brothers by Snoop. Don't get it twisted.

  • YO

    Does this mean he aint a crip no more? Rasta Crip?

  • way ya say

    Jah Rastafari, fire burn that, Snoop is no real rasta man, you cant just wake up one day an say you are a rasta, fire burn that,

  • IMHO

    1) They got a point Snoop misrepresenting the culture 2) The "Rasta Council" have NO ownership of the "Rastafari religion" so they can bitch/sue all they want. No Judge is playing that shit... 3) "Rastafari religion" - like all "Religion" is fucking bullshit!! Peace

  • Anonymous

    Well, i hate this conversion too, but this criticize is just bullshit . Why does he have to change the name. They claim that snoop is doing this only for the money, but right now the Wailers are the moneychasers

  • Anonymous

    Y'all see if the Rastafari Movement was popular in 1993 Snoop would join in lmao this nigga basically follows whatever's trending at the moment

  • ME

    He aint a real Rasta unless he stinks! Word up

  • allyallstupid

    looks like the poor Wailers are desperate for cash...Snoop has plenty of cheese and im sure he doesn't need to convert to a rasta to pay the bills, i actually think he made more if he stayed in hip hop. broke a$$ Jamaicans tryin to sue foh lol

  • anonymous

    this dudes just puttin on a show to get some $$$

  • dj nemesis

    let the man live, hes on a spiratual journey, you dont join the Jewish religion an get a bar mitsfah the day you join, same goes for rastas, you cant expect the man to have gone through all the walks of life as a rasta when dude just converted

  • Really?

    So this Rastafarian Council believes "suing" Snoop would be within the constraints of their religion? They think that without Bob Marleys cannabis presence Rastafarian Music would have taken off in America? No because that IS what it was about HERE, in AMERICA where Snoop lives. It was about smoking weed and listening to this black man say fuck the government--since the issues of political persecution were not prominent in America we took forth smoking weed, rebelling, rebel music---it offends me when religions believe everyone should abide by every word every line of text they have followed throughout their lives--well why can't religion transform like this ever-changing world we live in---you are supposed to be about peace and harmony--do you REALLY think Marley would want YOU to SUE Snoop Dog? Hes an American-Rastafarian, there does that hurt less feelings? Unbelievable.

    Bunny and the Council need to sit down somewhere and be happy that someone is bringing light to the culture on a mainstream level. Because thats all it is-A CULTURE. Jamaican government has NEVER officially recognized Rastafarianism as a religion they way they have other religions and have even further villainized it thoughout its existence. Its primarily only through Jamaican musicians that it has come to be accepted to the degree it now is. But there was a time where the government was literally hunting them and killing them like they were animals #truestory.

    "Wailer said that Snoop was abusing the tenants of his religion for commercial gain." "[Snoop has failed to meet the] contractual, moral and verbal commitments [of the Rastafarian religion]," "The Council is threatening to sue Snoop Dogg is he does not cease to use the name "Snoop Lion," make a public apology and pay fees to the group for financial and moral support." Don't let Bunny Wailer's diction confuse you, this is all about money. He's saying Snoop Dogg is using the Rastafarian religion for commericial gain WITHOUT paying the religion their cut. It's like going to Church and the guy next to you is pissed off because you didn't put money in the collection plate. Bunny Wailer is not the King of Rastafarians. That said, Snoop Lion is a gimmick.

    It doesn't matter,this still makes snoop look like a fucking idiot. And no one was surprised by the silly name change! Snoop lion? literally takes half a second to come up with that name!

    hahhhaaahaahaaha.... Laughing is one of the best parts of the human experience. `If your fortunate you'll have one of those moments where you get to laugh and pass gas at the same time. Its not gross. Its called living life healthy. That's exactly what I did when I heard this story and I'm proud I did. I don't believe Snoop's conversion to rastafarianism is authentic at all. I think it is fraudulent and a ploy of some sort but lets face it, he doesn't owe them shit.

  • Jampac

    Bee Eazy - Rastafarianism is not considered a religion and they dont have missionaries who travel the world trying to convert people. So Its not correct to say that they are"trying to get more members to their clan and convince everyone that they are the truth"

  • Bee Eazy

    Yes you might be right about his motive for conversion maybe fraudulent or not but you have no right to sue.You can not have a monopoly over the religion because at the end of the day you are trying to get more members to your clan and convince everyone that you are the truth as compared with other religions. How about educating Snoop "Lion" and teach him to lead the right way i.e. the Rastafarian way?

    • Bee Eazy

      On the flipside, I doubt if Snoop actually trademarked the name. So as far as I'm concerned, it's just an alias and anyone could lay claim to it. Really, it should be small beer.

    • foreal

      is "Snoop Lion" even trademarked? by anyone other then snoop himself? you arent really catholic so guess what Jesus... you will have to change your name or i will sue!

  • JJ

    I was waiting to see a line about getting paid. Folks at the end of the day its all about getting money out of something. If Snoop Dogg pays them, they will say Snoop is the greatest thing to happen to Rastafarianism. smh

    " Snoop was abusing the tenants of his religion for COMMERCIAL GAIN." "The Council is threatening to SUE Snoop Dogg...

  • Brian

    This is unbelievable. First and foremost, is this not violating Snoops freedom to religion? He is allowed to practice whatever he wants -- and technically, he's allowed to call it whatever he wants too -- That's AMERICA -- Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion; members of any religion have no right dictating who can and cannot choose to follow any said religion.

    • jampac

      "outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism," Says Bunny Wailer. Snoop does not have any exclusive right to use a brand that he does not own. He is free to smoke weed, listen to reggae and grow dreadlocks. But he cant use Rasta as he like. Brand Rasta is for official members of rastarianism.

    • jampac

      If he is a rastafarian then he must follow the rules of Rasta. If he doesnt live up to the rules then he is not a Rasta but instead a Rass claat. He must stop using the Rasta brand. Let me remind yoiu that rasatafarians do not consider their belief and movement to be a religion

      You're essentially right, however freedom of speech is trampled if others are barred from calling you out for not being adherent to the texts and teachings they claim to live by. But yes, unless you want to call yourself Jewish, you can claim to be a follower of what ever religion you wish.
