Bunny Wailer claims that the forthcoming Snoop Lion album 'Reincarnated' and a documentary of the same name are "fraudulent" and is threatening legal action against the rapper. Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in "outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism" and that he has also failed to meet "contractual, moral and verbal commitments".Haile Selassie, we didn't know there was an official "You Are or You Are Not" Council of Rastas. (We may be on the inauthentic list too, although we're not much of a Bob Marley fan. And not much of a reefer smoker these days.) Not a bad idea though.
Additionally, the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) have sent a seven-page list of demands to Snoop. The document was obtained by TMZ and includes them telling the rapper that "smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture!"
