#TuesdayTease: Stephen Ragga Marley
This Thursday you can catch Stephen “Ragga” Marley, son of legendary Bob Marley, at House of Blues. Stephen is well on his way to making music history as a five-time Grammy winner and both a member of his own band and his brother’s, Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. And his 2011 album, Revelation Pt. 1 – The Root of Life won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2012. This summer, he’s set to release Revelation Pt. 2 – The Fruit of Life. Read more from the recent Rolling Stones article.
“The concept of the [new] album means merging my music with hip-hop and anything else I feel like,” he tells Rolling Stone. “Every aspect from the songwriting to the production, even the way I sing certain parts of a song, has to return to that concept.”
Revelation Part 2: Fruit of Life will arrive this summer and will feature contributions from Rick Ross, Ky-Mani Marley, Busta Rhymes, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Rakim and many others.
