ReincarnatedProminent members of Jamaica’s Rastafarian community have long been skeptical of Snoop Lion‘s recent conversion from gangster rapper to a melodic Reggae musician. They now have made their reasoning clear as to why they believe his new ‘Lion’ moniker is nothing more than a cheap gimmick.

The film, which premiered across U.S. Theatres last Friday, shows footage of Snoop’s intimate conversation with Wailer while showing the former rapper’s interaction with several high priests at a Nyabinghi temple in Clarendon during his visit.

However, Wailer and members of the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council claim footage of both encounters were used illegally in Reincarnated and have been reaching out to Snoop for what they claim are breaches of an agreement struck during the American entertainer’s visit.
