Sorry Snoop, we’re still riding with Bunny Wailer. Today marks the 67th earthstrong of the last remaining member of the Wailers trinity, so it’s only right to share some footage of Neville O’Riley Livingston’s performances. First up is a full 1986 concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which was sold commercially by Shanachie Records as Bunny Wailer In Concert. The show begins with a larger-than-life, fire-and-brimstone introduction, as “the musical messiah” before moving into a performance including nearly the entire Blackheart Man album. ” The show marked a “comeback” of sorts as, according to the video description, Bunny had not been seen abroad in over 10 years (though it seems he had done one show immediately prior to this one in Long Beach, California).

LargeUp TV: Snoop Lion Talks Reggae, Rastafari + Musical Youth

Snoop Lion

Like it or not, Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated is the most talked about reggae project since… yeah, even we are struggling to remember the last time a new reggae LP elicited this level of intrigue from the world at large. Other non-Jamaican acts with big names have made surprising left turns into reggae before but none has generated the interest and backlash as the former Snoop Dogg has with his new identity.

Snoop and Diplo on Popcaan

A few months back, shortly after Snoop Dogg’s press conference announcing his transformation into Snoop Lion, we sat down with Snoop and producer Diplo for an in-depth conversation on a wide variety of topics. One was Snoop’s relationship with Bunny Wailer. Another was dancehall phenom Popcaan, with whom the pair collaborated on “Lighters Up,” from Snoop’s upcoming Reincarnated album (and perhaps some other tracks from the LP as well?)

Bunny Wailer and Snoop Lion

Bunny Wailer’s gripes with Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion and his representation of Rastafari culture have become a hot topic recently, even making gossip website TMZ. “Fire will bun fi him,” the site suggested—props on your patois, Harvey—if Snoop doesn’t make things right with Bunny and the Rastafari Millennium Council, which has also aired grievances with Snoop and his Vice-produced Reincarnated documentary—and asked him to stop calling himself “Lion.”
