As we celebrate the life of Robert Nesta Marley better known to the world as Bob, and considered by all to be the greatest reggae artist to date. It was 30 years ago today that the father of reggae music left us. Bob is the man who took reggae music and the Rastafari movement main stream. Bob Marley is the only reggae artist to go 10 times Platnuim and sell over 25 million world-wide. WhatBlackMenWant can speak on Bob all day given all his classics, but we would rather have the people speak about this iconic figure.

“I don’t have prejudice against meself. My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever. Me don’t dip on nobody’s side. Me don’t dip on the black man’s side nor the white man’s side. Me dip on God’s side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white” – Bob Marley

Bob suffered from melanoma, which spread to his lungs and brain, and caused his death on the morning of May 11, 1981 at the University of Miami Hospital. He was only 36…Bob is survived by his wife Rita and his 11 children.

Remember, they’re all classics…
