19-year-old grandson of the late legend Bob Marley, Skip is now getting international attention.

Nephew of Cedella Marley he is coming into his own as he lives up to the Marley name.

In an interview with Teen Vogue Magazine he talks about his music among other things.

“My music is about peace, love, and happiness. Unity. Togetherness,” said the teen singer on his solo career launch.

“It’s about good vibes and good times. Just living your life. This is music for the people.”

Just looking at Skip’s photo it’s hard not to spot that ‘Marley’ look. But for those who have converse with and moved around him, the word out is that the similarities between he and his grandfather runs deeper than that. Even the interview of Teen Vogue could spot that as he penned, “the similarities run much deeper than surface level: Skip’s entire persona is a natural extension of his late grandfather’s. Sitting down to talk with the reggae royal was similar to what you’d imagine meeting Bob would be like—it was almost as if he’d time traveled.”

In talking about his late grandfather Skip said, “Even though I never met him, I always knew who he was—he was everywhere in the house. When I was 11 or 12 I started to realize what a positive effect he had on the world and thought, Hey, I want to do that, too.” And if the direction his career is going is anything to go by, he might very well do it too.
