Why is Snoop Dogg Getting so much Backlash for wanting to go Reggae ?

all ignorance and jokes aside are people forgetting this is snoop dogg we're talking about here, he already did everything there is to do in hip-hop. people think he's doing it to make money off their religion.. really? pretty sure snoop done sold millions of records and sold out shows world wide, done movies and could have laid back and kicked his feet up for the rest of his life years ago.

i don't think it's phony the nigga is right there with the people in the slums, he could be anywhere else

    Hes progressively gotten worse and worse since his debut, will throw a few suprises out there like Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, and some of R&G. But the older he gets the more experimental he goes and the wacker it becomes. the reason people love him is because he is Snoop Dogg. They love Doggystyle. I understand he cant rap about the same shit his entire life, but he doesnt have to abandon what made him loved imo. Snoop with Some dre production, on some West Coast G Funk shit is what we want to hear.

    he can always go back to that shit, he still rides wit Daz Dillinger and kurupt and all of them. he's been doing that for years why can't he experiment at the age of 41 when he has basically conquered everything in rap already.

    because he sucks at it. no one would have an issue if he was actually good

    also reggae is not some gimmick that you can just adopt willy nilly. it's a respected genre who most recognized artists got to where they were because of their talent. it's kinda disrespectful to use that as a marketing ploy

    Snoop got into reggae to look cool while smoking weed. Just like Lil Wayne making rock music cuz he thinks he looks cool with a guitar.

    speaking of wayne and snoop, why don't they actually learn about what they're trying to be. actually learn how to play the guitar, don't use it as some kind of fashion accessory

    well....think about it
    snoop doesn't want to do hip hop that much anymore. do you see the hip hop community up in arms over that? nope

    apparently we don't want his musical contributions to our genre anymore, so why should they?

    Because he is making a mockery of Rastafarianism, the shit isn't about smoking weed and just the music.

    the jamaicans around my way are cool with it cause they say even tho the music is trash he hipping the masses up to the rasta lifestyle that otherwise wouldnt go search for it. plus even tho he fake he showing love and going to jamaica and fucking with the og's. the marleys co-sign hiim, he got love from the marley family, so to them its all good.

    i'm not jamican so i cant call it. i aint buying this shit, but if he showing love and hitting the marleys up with some loot then i dont see the problem, personally. hell id much rather he do this regaee shit than someone like no doubt.
    just my opinon.

    Shit, if he said he was a born again Christian the sheep would praise him.

    Look at a majority of everybody from the deathrow/ bad boy era. Mostly all of em are in bad shape cept Snoop & Dogg pound. he earned the right to try his hand elsewhere

    here a little no secret outside the Jamaican community. Rastafarianism is looked at as some foolishness , so most Jamaican could care less if he uses it for profit.
    My jaican niggas told me the same thing.

    Cause Jamaicans actually take care of their shit and not let corporate heads take over, unlike niggas elsewhere.
