..."Growing up, I was an athlete," says Marley. "I still am to this day. "So that's what I was leaning towards. Music, to me, I never thought about doing. It was a gift that I had that I didn't even know I had, you know what I mean? So it was different because, when I reflect on it now, I realize it was my destiny from day one and there's no way to get around it."

Ky-Mani Marley dropped his latest set entitled “Radio” on September 25, and the CD has debuted in the number one spot on Billboard's Reggae album chart.This album features guest appearances by G-Unit member Young Buck and R&B singer Mya.
