Days after legendary Reggae singer, Bunny Wailer and members of the Rastafari Millennium Council went after Snoop Lion for his alleged profiting off Rastafarian culture, the former gangster rapper turned Reggae crooner hopes to make amends with them.


Snoop Lion will reportedly fly down to Jamaica in February to meet with Wailer and the Rasta Council in an attempt to hash out a truce Last week, Wailer blasted Snoop in an interview with TMZ for using the Rastafarian culture to help him sell records, accusing the artiste formerly known as Snoop Dogg of failing to meet the 'contractual, moral and verbal commitments' of being a Rasta.

Wailer also chastized Snoop of 'outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism,' while the Rasta Council, which he heads, released a statement saying in part, "Smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and Reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari indigenous culture!"

Snoop morphed from 'Dogg' to 'Lion' after visiting Jamaica last year to film his Reincarnated documentary, where he met with various Rastafarian leaders in an attempt to gauge a greater sense of the culture. He has since released two singles under the Snoop Lion moniker, including La La La and Lighters Up (feat. Popcaan and Mavado).

On Friday, Snoop responded to the allegations on BET's 106 and Park, saying, “I''m a positive individual, I know what am here to do what am suppose to do, so am going to continue to push forward, and ain’t nobody going to stop me.”

He also spoke of his relationship with Bunny Wailer. “You know one thing about Bunny Wailer, is that if you ain’t real, then you ain’t gonna be around him.”
