The Rastafari Millennium Council Angry At Snoop Dogg. They Demand He Issue A Public Apology, Stop Using The Name 'Lion' & Pay Them

 

Leaders of the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) have sent a 7-page demand letter to Snoop.Dogg.


The group wants the rapper to pay them "financial and moral support" they claim he committed, issue a public apology and stop using the name "Lion" according to TMZ.


In the documents 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!"

The group says they will sue Snoop if he does not agree to their demands.

Bunny Wailer

 

Bunny Wailer, an original member of Bob Marley and the Wailers is also upset with The Doggfather.

Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in "outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism." He says Snoop failed to meet "contractual, moral and verbal commitments" in regards to his documentary "Reincarnated."

 

Snoop traveled to Jamaica last year to record his first reggae album, also titled "Reincarnated." The documentary details the Long Beach rapper's journey as he is "embraced by the Jamaican people, is positively impacted by Rastafarian culture, and becomes reincarnated as Snoop Lion," according to the documentary trailer.

Snoop issued a statement last July, describing the name change as a spiritual awakening. "I wanted to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion, but I didn't know that until I went to the temple and received the name Snoop Lion from the Nyabingi priest,” said Snoop. “From that moment on, I started to understand why I was there and was able to create something magical in this ['Reincarnated'] project ... something I haven't done before in my career.

I see he trying to get back to God,, I see he feel guilty and he should.. He must stop smoking.. It is weakening his spirit and his mind.. everyone cannot live the same way.. Hope he gets this message. But as far as those priest are concern there is no revolution without guns.. you can line up in the cage in chains if you want to but there will be no repeat of 1400

I agree! I think Snoop is being a hypocrite! When people were C walking Snoop got mad because people thought it was just a dance and he tried to correct people by letting them know that its more than just a dance, its a way of living! So now Snoop needs to check himself and understand that he can just make a reggae album and think he is jamaican now!

I don't mind that snoop changed his name. Its fine. He's put in waaaay 2 much work, in my eyes, for me to ever worry about a name change. Regardless of what he calls himself, he'll always be hip-hops uncle. And we all Nephews, lol
