Happy Birthday Stephen Marley

A happy bornday (April 20th) salute is in order for Stephen Marley, son of Reggae legends Bob Marley and Rita Marley. Stephen has earned the title of legend in his own right getting his start with his siblings in the group Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers, then later to produce much of his older brother Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley's three solo albums, including the scoring of the massive worldwide hit and title track of Welcome To Jamrock in 2005. He also produced for brother Julian Marley, and executive produced and performed on the 1999 Bob Marley mash-up, Chant Down Babylon. He would later go on to produce and pen his own albums Mind Control, which sold nealy 10,000 copies in it's first week, and Mind Control: Acoustic, in which he won a Grammy for the latter. He has also collaborated with brother Ky-Mani Marley and other notable Dancehall and Reggae artists.
