“…Rap dudes bitin’ me cause. I got it locked like the late Bob Marley..
Pardon me y’all, the Great Bob Marley…” – Jay-Z

Bob Marley passed away thirty years ago today. In May of 1981, while flying home from Germany to Jamaica, in acceptance that he was going to die, Marley’s vital functions worsened. After landing in Miami, Florida, he was taken to the hospital for immediate medical attention. He died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital) on the morning of May 11th 1981, at the age of 36. The spread of melanoma to his lungs and brain caused his death.

His final words to his son Ziggy were “Money can’t buy life”. True indeed.
