I firmly believe that it does the memory of the late great Bob Marley a disservice to refer to him as solely a musician. A force of nature, yes, a uniter of people around the globe, most definitely yes.

In honor of the anniversary of his birth, Grown Folks Music wanted to provide all of you with a special Birthday Tribute Mix. Special shout out to DJ PHAZE. You can follow the beats on Twitter @THEDJPHAZE.
