5. Stephen Marley, Revelation, Pt. 1: Root of Life (Universal Republic)
A sort of companion piece to his brother Damian’s 2010 collaborative LP with Nas, Distant Relatives, Stephen Marley’s Revelation, Pt. 1 was a call for unity to African people worldwide. Consistent throughout, the LP’s centerpiece was the megawatt lighter-lifter of a Buju/Damian collaboration, “Jah Army,” one of the year’s most massive-sounding reggae tunes.
