Bob Marley's Son to Snoop:

My Dad Would've LOVED You!

EXCLUSIVE

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."

This fight is so ridiculous. Bunny Wailer demands Snoop stop callign himself lion. Why would anyone want to be called lion anyway? It sounds like that grocery store Food Lion.


I wonder if this cult still worships Halie Salassie as God. Is Halie the only one who can be called the lion then? Then there was mention of being owed money by Snoop. If you live in the jungle how much money do you need?

Why is he being so mean to Snoop Lion? Very sad. Maybe a media ploy.

That's not a nice thing to say about your father. Snoop is nothing more than a drugged out thug who no respect.
