Of all of Bob Marleys kids who are making music, Stephen Marley
sounds the most like his dad. Hes also the one who comes closest to Bobs aesthetic ethos. The 34-year-old singer spent the past decade playing guitar, producing, and remixing for a number of artists -- including Erykah Badu and the Fugees. He was also a member of older brother Ziggys Melody Makers for years. Stephens just-released debut album, Mind Control, is a simmering mix of reggae rhythms and hip-hop beats. He has his dads social spark, dropping rhymes with spiritual and political smarts. Marley just launched a nationwide tour with baby brother Damian Junior Gong and Knaan.
