The Marleys' cant Lose

This week we showcase a double douse of Marley Mania.

But first in case you hadn't heard, there is a controversy concerning Kendall Jenner (daughter of the Kris Jenner and part of the Kardashian Klan) whose recent Pepsi commercial was pulled and an apology issued after social media responded very negatively that the ad was "tone deaf" and sought to capitalize and trivialize recent social demonstrations by Black Lives Matter.

Watch the commercial for yourself

Seriously we don't really see the controversy, it s a silly commercial, for a soda. But we don't pree the political and social undertow what moves us even more is the MUSIC. Probably the  next biggest causality is more people wont get to hear this hit of a song "Lion" by Skip Marley (son of Cedela Marley and grandson of Bob).

In Jamaica we have have a saying the Marley's bread butter on both sides its more like on all four sides. Seriously though although the Marley name opens doors and gives them access to the very best in musicians,  you cant deny this Marley has TALENT, What is uncanny the similarity in tone to his grandfather.

Already creating a buzz with his pop collab with Katie Perry with Chained to the Rhythm we see this Marley as destined for the stars, Skip a diii Man.

On to the next Marley, BTW are we the only one that didn't recognize Stephen Marley's voice initially on another potential hit song " Options" with Pit Bull. Shot on location in Jamaica including at Tuff Gong Studios this is a great song showing the range of Stephen Marley already an accomplished producer/songwriter performer in his own right.

The Marley's creating MaaaaaaD Music
