Last thing I heard Eddie Murphy wouldn't even greet his fans without wearing gloves......call it OCD or whatever you want.....but don't talk to me about the people if you cant even bear to touch them......

Don't know if that argument really holds up. Buju Banton got busted for attempting to traffic cocaine, and he's been known to pull knives on people he doesn't agree with. Dennis Brown had a crack cocaine habit and relations with teenage girls. Do you think that reggae always must be created by peaceful rastamen with halos over their heads? I don't have really strong feelings about Eddie Murphy or Snoop, but think that (surprisingly) they have crafted a fine reggae song together. It seems rather churlish to dismiss or condemn them.

do I think reggae must be created by peaceful rastamen??......don't talk to me like i'm an idiot.....

what im saying is these two made their name from a very different trade to what they are involving themself in now.....if reggae music is your calling then that's what it is.....but jumping into it in this manner strikes me as a fad.....and its not my cup of tea.....

you listen to that if that's what you like.......

but to me its **** and I'd rather listen to a Groundation demo tape than that plastic nonsense....

Have to agree that Snoop and Eddie are impostors who should stick to what they do best which is make crap hip-hop and **** poor movies.

Well maybe I am looking at this wrong because I always thought eddie murphy was a very talented individual who really brought a lot to whatever role he played, in movies, stand up comedy, and music. at least up till 10 years ago or so when he appeared to become a whole lot less accessible anyway. I was pretty much an eddie murphy fan from back in the SNL days and I think he is doing some great work here too, bandwagonist or not.

at least its not steven segal being "into" reggae.

one love

Eddie Murphy has been singing reggae for a long time:

It's interesting but if you look closely at the Red Light video you can see him imitating Bob in both movement and voice. Reggae is dying in many ways so if these big stars are keeping it alive I suppose it's a good thing.
