Snoop Lion Receiving Death Threats From Rastas

If this piece of news is true then we are sure Snoop Lion won’t be returning to Jamaica.

Last month Snoop Lion, formerly Snoop Dogg, told NME that he may never do another reggae album in Jamaica due to issues with Bunny Wailer and members of the Rastafarian Millennium Council, who accused the rap icon of exploiting Rastafarian culture for profits.

It turns out that there is a deeper underlining reason why Snoop is turning his back on Jamaica, the island that changed his life forever.

An inside source at the Rastafarian Millennium Council exclusively told Dancehall HipHop that some unknown Rastafarians have been sending death threats to the rapper.

“Am not surprise Snoop don’t want to come back to Jamaica because I heard from good source that he has been getting death threats from rastas,” the source said, requesting anonymity.

“Rastafarian is about peace, love and unity, so these Rastas who are sending these threats are not members of the council,” the source added.

“Yes there were some issues with Snoop and the Council but we don’t address issues with violence, we love Snoop and we welcome him with open arms,” the source continues

Snoop Lion was in Jamaica in February to shoot the video for “Lighters Up,” a collaborative single featuring Mavado and Popcaan that will appear on his upcoming album Reincarnated, due in stores on April 23.

The West Coast rap legend, turn reggae star, has not returned to Jamaica since and may never return.

Despite his issues with Bunny Wailer and the Rastafarian Millennium Council, Snoop Lion says he will continue to spread the Rastafarian message of peace and love.

His latest single is titled “No Guns Allowed” and features appearances from Drake and his daughter Cori B.

  1. BOTH of my parents are from Jamaica as well as overall family members. I will just say that Snoop is in fact exploiting the rastafari lifestyle as well as the music to re invent himself. He needs to go back to doing what he does best and that’s being an ignoramus in American culture and stop giving those who really know what it is all about which is peace, love and good vibes a bad name. RESPECT, Bunny Wailer…. You are a legend, just as Bob Marley is a legend. One love

  2. No one likes an impostafarian

  3. REAL rastas have love in their heart for all people. JUDGING is not up to you or them. The Most High is the ONLY one he have to answer to, as do you.
    Look in the mirror, because your hateful attitude, heart and words, are anything but ONE LOVE.
    Ya don’t have to dred to be rasta….there are more phoney rasta then real deal.
    Red-gold & green is just the shell. Its how you treat others with love & respect.

  9. I once watched an interview with Snoop about his involvement in Rasta music and he wanted to expand his horizons being that he has been doing rap for so long. BUT not sure how bridges got unright between him and the Council but no need for any death threats. I wish them all the best and hopes this issue calms.

  21. In my opinion, he chose to exploit the wrong culture , through my eyes he chose to widen his horizons through music without going through the proper channels to use Rastafari name and culture.

    As for the death threats I wish death upon no man, I can not be in favor of those making threats to Snoop Dogg’s life.

    Rastafari is not something to back a quick dollar of, this is a culture and a way of life for many people from Ethiopia, to Jamaica to Brooklyn, Ny and worldwide.

  27. I don’t believe he was exploiting the culture for a quick buck, if he wanted to make money he could just release a hiphop album because more money is in hip hop than reggae.
