Of all of Bob Marley’s kids who are making music, Stephen Marley sounds the most like his dad. He’s also the one who comes closest to Bob’s 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 Ziggy’s Melody Makers for years. Stephen’s just-released debut album, Mind Control, is a simmering mix of reggae rhythms and hip-hop beats. He has his dad’s social spark, dropping rhymes with spiritual and political smarts. Marley just launched a nationwide tour with baby brother Damian “Junior Gong” and K’naan.
