Did you hear? Back in 2016, Damien Marley — Bob Marley’s youngest son — partnered with Ocean Grown Extracts to convert a former 77,000 square foot prison in California into a cannabis grow space. The multi-million dollar facility is now producing quality herb which is being sold to medical marijuana dispensaries.
As one might expect, the irony of the entire ordeal hasn’t been lost on Marley. Said the 38-year-old entrepreneur: “Many people sacrificed so much for the herb over the years who got locked up.

In this live performance, Ziggy and the Melody Makers perform ‘Justice’ along with Bob Marley’s famous song ‘War’ before Damian Marley, the rapper of the family, takes the stage and performs his version of ‘Justice’, which is called ‘More Justice’. Those of you who are interested in elite accountability and social change will probably appreciate all three songs. Enjoy!
Wes: This song from conscious rapper Damian Marley (one of many children of Bob Marley) encourages us to become aware and get active with our awareness.
A lot of things are happening here on earth that most people are completely unaware of, and those of us who are aware are encouraged to use our awareness for as many positive purposes as we can. I especially enjoy Damian’s short speech toward the end of the song.
As Marley fans will instantly recognize, this song’s taken from the template of Bob’s song, Exodus. Enjoy!
Today, we have Damian Marley performing a brilliant remix of his father’s “Exodus”. If you like rap, truth and encouragement to get on the move, you’ll appreciate this performance.
