Sizzla Kalonji Backtrack On Snoop Dogg Diss, Praises The Icon [Video]

Reggae star Sizzla Kalonji may be having a change of heart on his feelings towards legendary hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, aka Snoop Lion.

In June of this year Sizzla released a single “Burn Out Smithsonians,” where he took a few shots at Snoop Dogg for taking on the Rastafarian faith.

“Nothing is right boy nothing is cool, who the rasscl–t Snoop Dogg a try fool, tell them seh a Selassie I rule, him can’t even get Selassie I stool,” Sizzla Kalonji deejay.

Now in a recent interview Sizzla had nothing but high praises for the West Coast rap star.

“To have a great icon like Snoop to come and make mention of Rastafari and embrace the culture we really like that,” Sizzla Kalonji said. “We need a lot more of these people with fame and popularity as you would say, to come and take up Rastafari work and lead it… So when we have people like Snoop Dogg and a lot more, not just Snoop, but a lot more out there.”

Sizzla got a lot of bashing from his fans after releasing the song.

Do you think that prompted him to rethink his stance on the icon coming into reggae?
