Bob Marley grandson Joseph Mersa Marley has died at the age of 31. Joseph Mersa Marley was born on March 12, 1991, in Kingston, Jamaica. He made his debut with “My Girl” in 2010 where he collaborated with his cousin Daniel Bambaata Marley.
In 2012 he released “Bad So” which was included in his EP titled “Comfortable” in 2014. His debut album titled “Eternal” would drop in 2021.
Joseph, son of Stephen Marley, took to Miami Dade College and studied audio engineering after spending his early years in Jamaica.
He went on to drop an EP in 2014 called “Comfortable” which held some tracks like “Rock and Swing” and “Bogus.” He also released the hit single, “Burn It Down,” in 2016 — and put out a 2nd EP, “Eternal,” last year.
I would come home and try to do homework, but I’d end up getting distracted and go peek in the studio. You would always want to run in and run out to see what was going on.” Joseph said.
Despite his grandfather being a legend in music, Jo Mersa was determined to pave his own road in the industry.
“I am one of the new generation of Marleys, but I am still experimenting at the same time,” he added “My plan is to do something new with my roots.”
