Last month Snoop Lion, formerly Snoop Dogg, told NME that he may never do another reggae album in Jamaica due to issues with Bunny Wailer and members of the Rastafarian Millennium Council, who accused the rap icon of exploiting Rastafarian culture for profits.
It turns out that there is a deeper underlining reason why Snoop is turning his back on Jamaica, the island that changed his life forever.
An inside source at the Rastafarian Millennium Council has explained to Urban Islands magazine that Rastafarians have been sending death threats to the rapper.
Am not surprise Snoop don't want to come back to Jamaica because I heard from good source that he has been getting death threats from rastas, the source said, requesting anonymity.
Rastafarian is about peace, love and unity, so these Rastas who are sending these threats are not members of the council, the source added.
Yes there were some issues with Snoop and the Council but we don't address issues with violence, we love Snoop and we welcome him with open arms, the source continues.
Snoop Lion was in Jamaica in February to shoot the video for Lighters Up, a collaborative single featuring Mavado and Popcaan that will appear on his upcoming album Reincarnated, due in stores on April 23.
The West Coast rap legend, turn reggae star, has not returned to Jamaica since and may never return.
Despite his issues with Bunny Wailer and the Rastafarian Millennium Council, Snoop Lion says he will continue to spread the Rastafarian message of peace and love.
His latest single is titled No Guns Allowed and features appearances from Drake and his daughter Cori B.
