Is Mystic Marley Bob Marley’s granddaughter?

Yes. Mystic Marley is the daughter of Stephen Marley, and granddaughter of Bob Marley. 

Like many members of her family before her, she is a recording artist. She released her debut single, Beatdown, in 2018. Listen to Mystic sing it live for NothingMag below. Alternatively, listen to the studio version here.

Does being a Marley bring a lot of pressure?

During an interview with Isaac Biehl of Source Weekly, Mystic opened up about what it’s like to be at the young end of such a strong musical lineage.

“I don’t feel pressure”, she said. “I feel like it’s a responsibility. It keeps you working hard and it’s definitely positive. It’s kind of an inspiration.”

She has toured with her father Stephen Marley at least twice, and describes performing as “literally the icing on the cake”.
