Rohan Marley Co-Signs Snoop Lion

Friday, January 25th, 2013

In contrast to the harsh words directed at Snoop earlier this week by Bunny Wailer, one of the original members of Bob Marley and The Wailers, one of the sons of the legendary reggae artist has now stepped up to defend the rapper’s transformation.

Rohan Marley, son of Bob and father of Lauryn Hill’s 5 children, recently told TMZ that he supports Snoop’s “rebirth” and he’s less than happy with Wailer’s recent shots at the longtime Marley family friend. He even went so far as to say that his late father would have supported Snoop’s new Rastafari image:

“Our father’s name should not even be mentioned in this issue because like a true Rasta, he would have embraced Snoop’s reincarnation and welcomed the positivity.”
