It turns out can teach an old dog, er, lion new tricks. Quizzed about his recent comments that the hip-hop community isn’t ready to accept an out rapper, the musician now known as Snoop Lion kinda back pedals.

When VH1’s Big Morning Buzz host Carrie Keagan asks about his previous comment, the rapper is quick to defend himself.

rasta-snoop“It’s not me, because I don’t have a problem with it,” he protests, adding that his opinion stems from the macho mentality of the rap generation.

“We were brainwashed not to not accept certain things, but as we get older and we learn, we appreciate life,” he adds. “In the near future it will happen.”

Lion wraps up with: “You have to live your live for who you are and you have to respect other people’s decisions and give them their space.”  That’s a rap we want to hear.
