REGGAE legend Bunny Wailer is not impressed by rapper Snoop Lion's (formerly Snoop Dogg) recent conversion to Rastafari.
Wailer is quoted by celebrity website tmz.com as accusing Snoop of engaging in "outright fraudulent use of (the) Rastafari community's personalities and symbolism" — and has failed to meet "contractual, moral and verbal commitments" from Reincarnation, Snoop's docu-mentary looking at his conversion.
The weed-loving rapper is also under fire from the Rastafari Millennium Council, which issued a seven-page letter to Snoop, claiming in part, that "smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous culture!"
According to tmz.com, the group wants Snoop to stop using the name 'Lion' and pay the "financial and moral support" they claim he promised them.
The report did not say what promises Snoop had made both parties.
Snoop Dogg told reporters in the United States that he converted to the Rastafarian faith after befriending a group of elders during a visit to Jamaica last year.
He has since recorded a number of reggae songs including La La La, a minor hit in the US.
