New York, NY (Top40 Charts) As the last year's celebrations commemorating the legendary Bob Marley's 75th birthday continue, "Rebel Music," the eighth episode of the Webby-nominated 12-part documentary series Legacy, premieres on Bob Marley's Official YouTube Channel. The episode features twenty-nine luminaries and family members sharing insights about the history and impact of Bob Marley's political and social activism.

"Rebel Music" presents a global conversation about the importance of Bob Marley's work as a political and social activist. Featuring Marley family members, grandson Skip, and children Damien, Ziggy, Julian, Cedella, and Stephen, this episode explores what Bob Marley fought for, who he influenced and why. Also offering insights are modern-day political activists and musicians such as influential Jamaican singer, member of the I-Three's and activist Judy Mowatt, iconic scholar and activist Dr. Cornel West, music greats Bobby Sessions, Beanie Man, Bujo Banton, Cee-Lo Green, Chuck D, Ne-Yo, Otis Williams, Smokey Robinson, Tropkillaz and more.

Over the summer, The Marley Family and UMe presented an all-star roster of talent for MARLEY SESSIONS as part of the "Summer of Marley" festivities. Artists such as Jacob Collier, Julian Marley, Mystic Marley, Sheku Mason, and more featured their representations of tracks from Bob Marley's catalog. Skip Marley, the grandson of Bob Marley, launched MARLEY SESSIONS on Bob Marley's official YouTube channel with a performance of "Three Little Birds" and culminated the series with his rendition of "Jamming.

A brand new official music video for Bob Marley's "Jamming" also premiered on Bob Marley's Official YouTube Channel in honor of International Reggae Day. The brand new "Jamming" video reimagines the lauded live performance footage captured at Boston's Music Hall on June 8, 1978. With animation and a custom never-before-seen edit, the video highlights each member of The Wailers and their radiant energy on stage, including the iThrees, who are symbolized as three little birds throughout.

The shows will be live tribute sets to his father, Bob Marley, with the BeachLife Festival also seeing Ziggy share the stage with his brother Stephen Marley.
