Snoop Lion has yet to make a statement regarding a potential lawsuit that questions the the sincerity of Rastafarianism. However, one of the late, great Bob Marley’s son has gone on the record to say he has the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper’s back.

Rohan Marley, aka Lauryn Hill’s baby daddy, believes that his father would have shown nothing but love to Snoop.

Reports TMZ:

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.”

A couple of day ago news broke that Snoop Lion, who plans on releasing a Reggae album titled Reincarnation later this year, was being threatened with a lawsuit by Bunny Wailer the  Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council. The latter sent Snoop a letter demanding he stop using the Snoop Lion name and deliver on financial support he allegedly promised, or face a lawsuit.

Yesterday, Snoop was spotted in LAX airport rocking a Bob Marley t-shirt and a tam.
