At the Rasta Council they are not happy with the docu-film, which shows Snoop’s immersion in the Rasta culture.Bunny Wailer says Snoop has engaged in for profit
“outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism” and has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.”
With the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union, Wailer wants Snoop to stop referring himself as Snoop Lion, “pay up financial and moral support” they claim he committed, and issue a public apology.
If Snoop doesn’t abide by these requests, they are planning to sue him. Basically is not enough to smoke weed to be a Rasta that’s what that means!
