Stephen Marley is Bob Marley’s second son.  He first appeared on record in 1979, when he was six years old. Stephen’s foray in the industry began when he decided to become familiar with the music industry from behind the scenes. Production work began in 1996 with Stephen contributing ideas to albums by his brothers Damian and Julian. Remixing the Fugees the same year was the first public display of Stephen’s love of hip-hop and R&B.
Work with Eve, Krayzie Bone, and Erykah Badu would follow along with a new role as “executive producer” of the Bob Marley remix compilation Chant Down Babylon, released in 1999 – the album’s success encouraged the young producer. 
Stephen’s version of “Master Blaster” landed on the Stevie Wonder tribute album Conception and work on brother Damian’s successful 2005 album Welcome to Jamrock furthered his recognition. 
He released his album Mind Control Acoustic which was distributed exclusively online in 2008 with the physical CD following in 2009. In late 2010, the “Jah Army” single announced the coming of his album Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life, his roots-oriented 2011 release. Revelation, Pt. 2: The Fruit of Life followed in 2016 as a more electric and hip-hop-oriented release. The album featured guests like Rick Ross, Waka Flocka, Wyclef, and Rakim.
