Stephen Marley Wants To Go To Africa

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.
