Damian Robert Nesta "Jr. Gong" Marley (born July 21, 1978) is a reggae artist who has won three Grammy awards. Damian Marley is the youngest son of legend Bob Marley.

Damian was two years old when his father Bob died; he is the only child born to Marley and Cindy Breakspeare, Miss World 1976. Damian's nickname Junior Gong is derived from his father's nickname of Tuff Gong. Damian has been performing since the age of 13. He shares, along with most of his family, a full-time career in music. Unlike his brothers and sisters, however, his musical specialty is "toasting", a Jamaican vocal technique that is a predecessor to rapping.

Damian has 3 records to date, including the highest placed reggae album in the USA billboard album charts with Welcome To Jamrock, and the highest place reggae song in the UK Top 40 with Welcome to Jamrock.

Like his father before him and the rest of the Marley family, he is a Rastafarian and his music reflects the Rastafari guiding principles of love and political freedom.

However, his father repudiated Ras Tafari as the Messiah and accepted at the end of his life that Ras Tafari is not Halie Selassie, that crown rightfully belongs to YASHUA BEN JOSEPH, known as jesus the christ. SEEN.
