Bob Marley, we all know his story of being a politically driven, ganja smoking Rastafarian who just happens to be an iconic musician.
But, did you know his name is actually “Robert” and was raised Catholic? He didn’t convert Rasta until the 60’s.
He’s one of the world’s top selling artist of all time, he sold 75 million records. Did these numbers in an era where you had to get off your ass and go to a music store (I miss those days).
“Could You Be Loved” & “Jamming” are my joints!!!
Marley died of Cancer in 81’, man F**k Cancer!!!!
This man had so many quotable’s but none more dope than this one;
“If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it you won’t give up, and if you give up you’re not worthy. Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you. You just gotta find the one’s worth suffering for”
Let that marinate!!!!
Happy 70th Birthday Mr. Marley, you were a gift to this world.
From snapping on the mayor (her hubby Ozzie) in Do The Right Thing, to giving her crack head son money in Jungle Fever, to pimp smacking Frank Lucas, this woman was just as beautiful now as she was then.
Also a freedom fighting activist, Ruby Dee you truly left your imprint on this world, and with me. May god take you home! 😌
