Bob Marley's Son to Snoop:

My Dad Would've LOVED You!

Snoop Lion just got the MARLEY FAMILY SEAL OF APPROVAL ... because Bob's son Rohan tells TMZ the reggae legend would've totally supported Snoop's Rastafarian rebirth.

Rohan says he's well aware that an original member of the Wailers -- along with the Rastafari Millennium Council -- attacked Snoop ... claiming the rapper is nothing more than a Rasta Imposta. 

But Rohan says those guys have it all wrong -- telling us, "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."

He continues, "Why condemn a man for his love of Rastafari and Bob Marley?"

"We have been cool with Snoop before his transformation and he will continue to have our blessings and support."

My only problem with Snoop doing reggae music is that he's terrible at it. I listened to a couple of his new songs, and they were lame as f_ck. He hasn't even been a decent rapper in 15 years. Maybe he should just retire and enjoy his money.

I am sad to see the amount of disrespect for Bunny Wailer, a man that grew up with Bob as young men and and an elder within the rasta community, who takes his faith seriously. Rohan does not speak for all the Marley's, and he's the most irrelevant. After he knocked up Lauryn Hill so many times only to marry a white woman, he should lie low. Snoop is just trying to stay relevant unless he proves it isnt

Unfortunately Snoop is not at all rasta. Rasta treats woman kindly and don't drink.

If Snoop is taking a step toward righteousness in His life let HIM, every man should! Bob told us to seek our redemption in the book of Revelations(HOLY BIBLE) in the song "One drop". The Bob Marley reincarnate would display the same teachings, which is what Jesus being the upholder of the word being the word that became flesh would allow. Jesus said,"he that is not against us is for us."- (Luke 9:50) So please Snoop "Give us the teachings of HIS MAJESTY NO WE DON'T WANT no DEVIL'S PHILOSOPHY!"

Rasta is a way of life, not a declaration. Time will tell if Snoop is truly Rasta. This would mean no more "Pimp of the Year" awards for him though....not sure if he will be able to resist that temptation ;-)

Alcohol and Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles and tons of fast food, probably not very Rasta. Jamaica has tons of original music, we Americans are really out of touch. He's kind of taking advantage of people who have actual musical talent and neglecting all the good stuff that is happening there right now.
