Okayafrica's reggae and dancehall sister (brother?) site LargeUp got to hang out with the legendary Stephen Marley at an exclusive listening session for his forthcoming LP Revelation Part 1 — The Root of Life. As the release date approaches (it’s slated to drop on Tuesday, May 24th), our friend Eddie Stats of LargeUp (and Okayplayer!) had a long one-on-one with the man himself.


Check out the personal, full interview in which Stephen speaks about remembering his father, songs with Rakim and Black Thought slated for Revelation — Part 2, the importance of Africa ("Made In Africa" features Wale and the cast of  FELA! on Broadway), and his wish to take his show to the Continent.
