snoop lion? i know bunny wailer didn't want to let him into the deep cultural roots of the rasta. it's a bloodline cultural connection, among many other things, it's not like someone of any color jumping in to the rap groove, this is an age old island trip, this is serious stuff to the remaining wailers, maybe bob would say let him in, who knows? i say the dogg should stick to catchin' a fire on american dank and play any kind of music he wants, it seems that it's the title 'lion' and claiming he's  'reincarnated' and belongs with the original rastas - i could see how any of the remaining wailers would not dig on this
