This reminds me of when Joaquin Phoenix got drunk and decided to be a rapper for 15 minutes. I grew up on reggae music and Snoop Dog will never be a reggae singer because he's not a righteous rastaman. There's a lot more to being a reggae singer than hiring Major Lazer as a producer and cutting 12 songs with a one drop reggae tempo.
To those who make fun of Haile Selassie I... He's a better role model to black youth than Jesus, Buddha or Mohammed ever were. Most white folks think worshipping Selassie is a nutty thing, but I think it's even nuttier for white folks to go out a start wars in the name of Jesus Christ, an anti-government pacifist who lived 2000 years ago. The only war Emperor Selassie ever fought in was a war defend his nation from an invasion by Italian fascists.
Long before Martin Luther King, Selassie spoke out against racism. From a 1943 speech by Selassie:
There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.
