Born in Jamaica in 1991, the musician was the son of one of Bob's 11 children.  


Grammy-winning artist Stephen Marley, 50, raised Joseph in Miami after moving to the city when he was 11.  


Stephen began writing music in middle school and released his first song, "My Girl", in 2010.  In 2014, his first EP, Comfortable, was released.  Its follow-up, Eternal, debuted last year.


Marley's death was first reported by Jamaican broadcast journalist Abqa Fitz-Henley, who said Marley was found unresponsive inside a vehicle.  An official cause of death has not been released.
