Jah Rejoice! Bob Marley’s marvelous life and spiritual journey is set to be projected upon the big screen in the form of an iconic and detailed biopic. The main producer behind the cinematic venture is none other than Bob’s second eldest son, Ziggy. Previously, Ziggy Marley executively produced the 2012 production, “Marley” and has played an instrumental role in reviving and remastering some of his father’s greatest hits such as, “Easy Skankin in Boston 1978.” Ziggy will team up with Paramount Pictures to illustrate the life and legend of his father’s lasting impressions that remain genuinely prevalent around the world to this day.
Growing up in the largest ghetto in the capital city of Kingston, Jamaica molded Marley into the brilliant, multi-faceted artist and activist that he became. Marley completely delineated himself from the standard path of the working class. Since Jamaica’s main export is raw sugar, several individuals who grew up in the impoverished area of Trenchtown sacrificed their free thought, sense of expression and worldliness to provide for their families in the most menial way possible. Rather than obey the norms of molasses and rum, Marley took the path of most resistance to generate timeless sounds, melodies and rhythms. His music soothes the souls of many impoverished people and he showed many ways to deal with oppression.
Marley’s stylistic approach incorporated intelligence, lyrical persuasion and amplification. His intense reflection along with boundless education, has enlightened millions of people worldwide. His thirst for knowledge was unquenchable and he imparted profound wisdom through his anecdotes.
Music by Marley deeply resembles tribal leader stories or monumental speeches given by world officials, which is why he is heavily revered as one of the most groundbreaking artists to ever grace popular music. Some might even describe him as the “fire and brimstone” type of preacher despite a rather passive and tranquil oral rendition.
No matter how you interpret the music, Marley clearly exemplified versatility to shift the landscape of conventional processes. His body of work stands firmly as a pillar of nonviolent resistance against social injustice.
Bob Marley’s presence on Earth radiated vibrance and excellence. His philosophical mentality and striking political voice played a major role in transforming the genre of reggae into a universally recognized genre of music. Some of the main tropes offered within Marley’s body of work revolve around peace, justice and equality. His exceptional ideologies earned him a wide range of listeners. From the UK to the US, Canada and the Caribbean Islands, Marley’s influence proved to be colossal.
Bob Marley: becoming one with Earth through a Higher Power
Raised as a Catholic, Bob’s heightened sense of spirituality over time eventually led him to completely convert to the Afrocentric religion of Rastafarianism. In the 1970’s, his cultural renewal symbolized the significance of this deeply sacred inner transition. Marley shedded his traditional religious state of being and discovered an entirely new unconquerable realm.
He was adept at resonating strongly with the ideal of, “tribal mystique” which deals heavily with faith-based rhetorical impact. His artistry speaks volumes to the power of positivity and how it can reinforce behavior. Marley sang tunes that are centered around Biblical messages, folk proverbs and Jamaican heritage. He stresses that as long as you stay true to your personal beliefs, values and namesake, there is not an external force that can hinder your perseverance.
Bob Marley: practicing mindfulness
Several overarching themes within Marley’s discographies include ascendancy, self-mastery and elegance. It is unfair to depict him as an anti-establishment artist, as he just wished to live and spread the message about enjoying the fruitfulness of life the way in which God intended. Along his journey, he created a platform by which dialogue could be invoked that related to change – – whether it be on the national level or within the depths of the self. Blessed with otherworldly talent, Marley found a way to compound every facet of his path to wholesome existence with patience, kindness and an unfathomably strong sense of willpower.

At this moment, details regarding runtime, directors and actors involved with the production have not been officially announced. Certainly, moviegoers can anticipate a precisely accurate characterization of Bob Marley and his spectacular influence.
