Stephen "Ragga" Marley is the second eldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley and Rita Marley. He was raised in Kingston, Jamaica and started singing professionally at seven-years old with his elder siblings Ziggy, Sharon and Cedella as The Melody Makers. The singer/songwriter/musician/producer has consecutively landed #1 on the U.S. Billboard Reggae Album Chart for all of his solo albums and has earned a total of eight Grammys for Best Reggae Album. He won this accolade as a solo artist for Mind Control, Mind Control Acoustic and Revelation Part I: The Root of Life, as producer for Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley’s Half Way Tree and Welcome To Jamrock and as a member of Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers for Conscious Party, One Bright Day and Fallen Is Babylon. His forthcoming album Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life, will be released this summer through InGrooves on Ghetto Youths International, his label co-owned with his brothers Damian and Julian. The album is the second installment in a two part series, following Revelation Part I: The Root of Life (2012). Whereas The Root of Life is a celebration and preservation of roots reggae filled with powerful messages, enriching spirit and live instrumentation, The Fruit of Life will utilize a diversified sonic palette to express the far-reaching impact Jamaican music has had on various genres, especially hip hop. The new album features a variety of guest collaborations with Rick Ross, Pitbull ,Dead Prez, Hip Hop legend Rakim, DJ Khaled, Wacka Flocka Flame , Busta Rhymes, Iggy Azalea , Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Black Thought (of The Roots), Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Capleton, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Ky-mani Marley, Jo Mersa and more . In 2015, Stephen toured the United States throughout the summer and fall to gear up for the release of the upcoming album.
