Recommended Posts


Damian Marley

(born July 21, 1978 in Kingston, Jamaica)

is a Grammy-winning reggae artist and is the youngest male child of reggae legend Bob Marley, and the only child born to Marley and Cindy Breakspeare, Miss World 1976. Damian's nickname is Junior Gong which is derived from his father's nickname of Tuff Gong. Damian has been performing since the age of 13. He shares with most of the Marley family a full-time career in music. Unlike his brothers and sisters, however, his musical specialty is "DeeJaying," the Jamaican style of rapping.


As of 2006, he has released three albums. His first, Mr. Marley, was released in 1996, his second, Halfway Tree in 2001, and his third, Welcome To Jamrock in September 2005. Halfway Tree was the 2002 recipient of the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. At the 2006 Grammy Awards, he won Best Reggae Album again for Welcome to Jamrock and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the song "Welcome to Jamrock."
